Continued from Part 1, but this time focusing on a couple of their original blends and single notes. My only relationship with this company is as a customer.

Blends

Earth – Spicy and green, very reminiscent of tea tree oil or eucalyptus, probably from the vetiver and cedar. Dries down to smooth woods. [*1/2]

Jivako – Subtle citrus over a beautiful blend of suede, amber and woods. [**1/2]

Teak – Soapy topnotes – lilac, rose and violet freshened by the lime. The base is rich, smooth and unobtrusive. [**1/2]

Tunisian Opium – Sweet orange and jasmine over a patchouli and amber base. Slightly sweet, and very rich. [**1/2]

Single notes

Almadina Musk – Green top-notes, smells like sage and underbrush. This would blend well, but on its own doesn’t feel complete. [*1/2]

East Indian Vetiver – Grassy and fresh, but with a very distinctive earthiness. [**]

Kasmir Patchouli – This is very deep and chocolaty, like the earthy patchouli in PG Cuir d’Iris. There’s a nice lift to this, despite its inherent heaviness. Adds interest to Almadina Musk. On its own, slightly reminiscent of freshly wet dirt near a mountain stream or after a soft rain. [**]

Patchouli Wood – A hint of bright patchouli over the darker, earthier Kasmir Patchouli. The addition of sandalwood lends a creamy characteristic to the base, making it more accessible. [**1/2]

Woody Sandalwood – Spicy and slightly green topnotes over rich, creamy sandalwood. Reminiscent of a smoother, more elegant rendition of Diptyque’s Tam Dao. [**1/2]
