How? I Apply the Fragrance

1 - 3 Sprays

First, let’s clear something up. There are very few people I will listen to when they tell me not to wear a specific perfume on skin. Russian Adam is one of them. With his dousing of rose and oakmoss, not even knowing a whisper of concern from overreaching organizations, he’s a man I will listen to regarding skin safety. Yes, I know about the dangers of birch tar, and they are real. Your skin eats this stuff up. I never thought I would chase down a garment perfume, but Russian Adam has never made one before. There’s no denying the satisfaction this brings to the nose and air and, for that matter, my flannels. Will only put it on certain ones because this perfume lasts forever, which means most likely this is a lifetime bottle, with no backup needed.

Russian Adam made a category of perfume for the guy not acting like he’s all society but the guy that built the society with his hands. The guy that actually labors; this is perfume for that guy. A rough leather that will sit on clothes forever with a powder on top that will fake you out at first, but this is rough and tough, with animalic bite behind the powder. Something in here is so nose addicting. This is vivacious; I recognize that nose ting that I got earlier in the year from Hiram Green. But this one doesn’t just ting; it rings the bell, you know, the town bell that can be heard throughout the land on a foggy morning. I want to grab my French press and put on something that is drenched in this.

This is the first time I have ever seen a rose be shy from Areej, but this rose is afraid to come out and show itself, as the violet has stolen the crowd and is flaunting everything while being held by jasmine in the most decked-out leather animal dance outfit known to man. Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdóttir make music together in Fire Saga, and their costumes and dance were made for a wear like this. There’s a stink, but honest to God’s truth, you want to keep smelling it. It makes no sense and gives you a lot of scents. The beaver tail and birch tar give off an animalic accord that is to be had. I mean, it’s raw, it’s real, like being out in nature. What is accomplished here is bold, creative, and it all comes together for a Cuir de Russie with the stamp of Russian Adam. Musk saturates the florals and birch tar and causes a bed of projection that keeps drawing me in for more. I think this is something I have to have. Overall, this is a phenomenal leather for the ages with a mesmerizing violet and a can’t-stop-smelling beaver tail.

  1. This one is a bomb! Wouldnt mind it as a signature scent.Seriously considering a second bottle before the first arrives ????. And i use it on my skin. Damn the consequences ????

  2. I didn't find anything stinky about it really. It is my 3rd favorite from the collection. It is quite nice and long lasting. Be nice on a scarf or something… but I don't own a scarf ha.

    Also I had like 10 people smell this one and they all liked it. Mostly women.

    1. LOL probably shouldn't of emphasized stink so much, but a new animalic sting to the nose. I have not smelled the raw material of beaver tail oil. I have a guy who offered to send me some. I need to take him up on that. Just a new animalic that is addictive. Also might be from the aged birch tar combo not sure.

  3. Content and poetry. Style and substance. What a fabulous review. I've also got a sample set, and I'm just waiting for the environment to really enjoy this.

  4. Who would have thought a garment perfume would be so amazing! I doused my jacket with this. Plan on having my winter jackets covered in this all winter long. The way this fragrance engulfs you is something else!

    1. @Therapeutic Fragrance I'll report back after we get some ice out there. I usually wear Norne when I'm ice fishing but this might be my new good luck scent. I bet the beaver tail oil will really bring in the fish 😉

  5. Have used up my sample lol but this blend is super and I get the fragrance anytime I move, this is what I love in a perfume like Cuir de Russi it goes with you for a long time going for a FB, Hope to grab Santal galore if perfume luck is with me on oct 3rd, the website goes slow and and loading takes forever.

  6. 92. Taking it upon myself to correct mathematical errors on youtube. Adds up to 92. Perhaps it is worthy of two bottles? PS This is the jewel of the collection, for me, although it will surely be the last to sell out…toxic perfumes can be frightening. Maybe it is worth risking death to repulse your loved ones with wafts of beaver tail oil?

  7. All corrections are welcome???? I still think Grandenia will be the last to sell out. I don't ever see the need for two bottles unless for an epic gift one day for someone. Or unless you spray away on skin to each his own.

  8. I might have to try this one; I love rose. I ordered Gentlemen's Club and had a shipping mishap, so somebody else ended up with it. The second bottle is supposed to be on its way.

  9. Wow Brandon, how do you find these fragrances, I just placed a pre-order for a 15 ml. which is expensive too LOL, they promise to ship it out oct end. I love Rose/oud so will take your word for it.

  10. on second thought how do you rate zak and dixit Ghaliya to this one, its not a fair question I guess seeing the ghaliya rosarie has more notes, but still try to answer, thanks

  11. Great video! CdR and Agar de Noir are on there way. CdR is easily my favorite from the new collection. Perhaps, it's that fleeting floral top that reminds me of Koh-i-Noor. I love that he waded into this historic genre. I've got some Woolriches that that is waiting for this. I've made my own CdR but it comes off really cold and grey. ALD's is a winter warmer.

  12. Ok ok after ten of your vids you got me. SUBBED. Wish I got musk love or literally any of your collection lol. Kind find areej for the life of me. Maybe Chinese oud… thoughts on that?
