How? I Apply the Fragrance

1 to 5 sprays

Top notes: Russian fir balsam, violet leaf, grey Indian ambergris Heart notes: old Mysore sandalwood resinoid extracted by Russian Adam, vanilla, grey Indian ambergris Base notes: tonka bean, fossil amber, cypress, cedarwood, oakmoss and nagarmotha On the top I get a soft, very soft dusting of orientals.some beautiful lightly roasted sea shells. I have this as an oil and this carries that softly. A touch of leather, a light leathery ambergris. If you haven’t smelled the magic of real ambergris Baikal does such a great job at using it. Ambergris is this baked mucus that is baked in lovely oceanic wonder. Just like the ocean air it is an ingredient that carries a composition into aquatic wonder. Just like other powerful olfactory ingredients it has a medicinal effect. Again real ambergris cannot be replaced with synthetics there is just something so powerful about natural ingredients. Ambergris is a carrier and it just has a clean natural scent of the ocean. Oud & Sandalwoods are to the forest as ambergris is to the ocean. I picture a day with a light breeze on the beach with the Sandy salty air. The waves are only two to three feet and as you hear them crashing you get a new whiffs. The scent of ocean salt water and the sea is all around. But there are florals involved. Light white tropical florals.. The whiff is clean and deep through your entire breath. Refreshing you like the salty ocean water. With just a mossy loveliness. The butteryness of mysore sandalwood gives a lift to the imagination and envelopes the composition with a butteriness. There are woods that come into play that just have ocean on top of them. Ambergris a material to play with to give your oils attitude and a wave to be carried on. One one wearing I wore this with a leather jacket. Man it brought that jacket to life. The leather scent of the jacket and the extrait de parfum just were majestic. This is like walking through the forest right next to the ocean. Fortunately it’s something we have here up in the Pacific Northwest. I cycle from the city to the ocean and the last ten miles after heartbreak hill. This scent brings me through that journey from forest to peaking at the Pacific and riding my bike right to it off of the beach. Getting off and enjoying the accomplishment with a few thousand others yeah. This scent brings me right there to the ocean and all it’s clean salt air. I sprayed one spray into my beard and it was like carrying that perfect sweater weather morning walk at the ocean all day long. Just a cleansing waterfall affect all day long. I get the color aqua green. Something you can meditate all day on. A scent with it’s own poem.

    1. EO 1 my thoughts are pretty much ready for review, but the Oud Luwak for me I still have to wear more. I'm already 4 wearings in and this thing still comes up with major new turns for me upon wearing. It is some bold juice with lot's of turns.

    2. @Therapeutic Fragrance Thanks. Oud Luwak is my blind buy target – still undecided is it going to be a larger decant or a FB. Ensar No 1 on the other hand is def. going to be a smaller decant given the pricetag:) looking forward to see your new reviews. Keep it up!

  1. I never watched to the very end until now.
    So, you don’t actually like it as much as you originally reviewed?
    Will the Soapiness appear regardless of activity or during workouts only?
    I’m still waiting for my order to ship so maybe I could still cancel…

    1. I have worn it many times since and wouldn't trade it. No problems at all unless high body heat. That was full body sweat that it blew up on me in. If you do go to the gym just put on after. The only thing I wear now to the gym are oils for the most part.

  2. When I wear Baikal Gris, I see dense, green and sticky forest that meets the sea above a moss and violet covered cliff. Salt spray and pounding waves, I see whales swimming at the horizon….this unconventional beauty is all about atmosphere and emotion. A great review!
