How? I Apply the Fragrance

The top is fruity with citrus tones against the metallic luxurious DNA of Xerjoff. The eucalyptus smells more like the leaf and not the menthol smell. I get hints of vanilla, even though vanilla is not mentioned in the notes list. Slight green notes bounce off of florals (maybe rose, definitely jasmine) in the heart. Patchouli, the synthetic type, feels like it is blended into the base with a sweet amber. The drydown is unusually powdery for a Xerjoff, but there is still a bit of the “Xeraide.” A vanillic amber-toned feeling forms on the skin in the drydown.

    1. Comparing to Areej, longevity is a big issue on these, but Areej isn't 100% natural. For what she has accomplished you are going to smell notes from her you won't smell anywhere else as she tinctures and experiments like Areej. Sampling is the way to go.

    2. Want to make a separate comment about having to sample. That is all relevant based on your likes and what you can afford. I swap samples with a couple of people who have different tastes so I can widen my olfactory senses. An event we had in Portland where a perfume store invited people to share vintage fragrances absolutely gave me a priceless experience. People brought in 50 year old perfumes that I would never be able to smell and now I call those to perfume enthusiasts must smell compositions. As far as Oud combinations I think in the next few years the market is going to get overwhelmed with compositions and it will be up to us as a community to decide which ones live on and the millions unnecessary. Sorry for the long wind I just don't want people buying a full bottle and regretting at the price points these are at. As far as this you don't have to hurry to it, there will be enough I will give a full in-depth review and score. After wearing twice the dry down is very familiar like I stated on IG. The first two hours is very special. If you can sample or try to wait for an in-depth review if it sparks your interest. A lot of people have the same mindset as you, thus the unusual for me long response:) Cheers!

    3. @Therapeutic Fragrance I appreciate it. I have to be picky with what I buy, and yes, I do buy samples and decants a lot, knowing that decants are a tricky business but I get to try so many different fragrances this way. Thanks again!

  1. Yeah! Liked everything I tried from the house. Too bad they didn’t last very long for me. If I had money to burn, I’d carry the bottles around with me to respray. But for now, I have to be ok with just sampling.

    1. The roll-on set looks pretty perfect to carry around. Not sure if its available or not. I almost went that direction but didn't want that much of all four not knowing the house yet, but would love to own more of the others.

    2. IX Lives Rasa is the longest lasting of what I tried, bc of the oud. It’s gently persistent in the hour for a couple hours. A beautiful soft oud for spring and summer. Beulah was my favorite, but didn’t last on skin very long at all. After three or four sprays on skin, the smell of all of them stays very close to skin. Def not big projectors. But they are all-natural perfumes. Don’t know if it would last longer if sprayed on skin, and of course you might have a different experience.

    1. Only have a couple more to go and then right before the show if they still have it I will guess my choices for the winners. Nailed 3 of 4 last year. The fourth winner I never had a chance to smell.

    1. Already ordered????. Yes on real ingredients. I am sure you caught my infra punch in the opening it will never happen. I wish natural perfumers would experiment a little more like directions of squid.

    2. Josh has never gave me anything. I met him once when he was only starting here in Portland and I didn't even know I liked perfume. I have no details at all. I took a shot on Sova and it is really good, so I read his description on IG with this. Just went for it.

    1. Therapeutic Fragrance I’ve been eyeing Nabataea for 2 years now but had no access to it. Yeah, her stuff is tops. She’s a classical perfumer. I have only 1 of her perfumes, Chamarre. It’s in the older bottles. There are only 3 of her perfumes in South Africa. None of the new stuff. I’m glad you’ve discovered her. Chamarre is similar to Gurlain’s Mitsouko.

  2. Totally agree with the reviews, didn't really like Bee. If one wants a honey fragrance Hiram Green – Slowdive is so much better, unique. Squid is great! Reminds me a lot of Orca from House of Matriarch, but with much better performance, the ambergris is amazing there.
    Brandon, I miss the old videos that barely had any edit on the transitions, it's fine to have some silence between some of the sentences. Just food for thought.

    1. Hey Rafael yeah I am torn on your point of the edit on transitions. It would take me three to four times longer to film and the payoff wasn't that good. I will get back to complete videos with smooth cadence in just a bit. I need to slow down first. Taking on the olfaction project was huge for me wouldn't of been able to do it without one take videos that I edit like that, but quality suffers. Always appreciate your thoughts.

      And Yes Hiram Green puts so much effort into his compositions. It's a lesson a lot of perfumers need to take note of, they end up so much more fulfilling for the consumer.
