How? I Apply the Fragrance

3 to 5 Sprays

Here is a lesson of what just a little change does to an entire fragrance. I have been through over ten peoples view on Layton Exclusif and most just say how entirely different it is from Layton. And yes it is. The lesson is all that is changed is no vanilla and woods added. This is from the director of the brand himself. You could not believe the sophistication this thing has. It’s like it is the best woods in the world. This is hands down sophistication in an atomizer. The house accord was made for this or so it seems to a tea. The fragrance wants to be so dark but the yin and yang just compliment each other in a perfect circle of a fan. Fragrance in my opinion compared to Perfumes Notes House accord is present with a rich resinous overtone that never settles in but floats in the air. This is so well blended that nothing sticks out. I heard him talk about how simple this is then this is flat out luck. This is sophisticated luxury. If I ever get the chance to go on a yacht you know one with a helicopter and garage for your cars when you come to port. This is the smell I would expect in the lounge area in a big leather chair with mounted trophies. Grapefruit and mandarin shine on top for a good hour. A crisp bright air floats around you. Only one real significant transition and just a fantastic perfume that begs, no wrong word demands to be noticed. The guaiac wood form a strong base this is the most guaiac wood that I have seen in a mainstream fragrance and there is just nothing that can stop this house’s secret sauce of an accord. Powders only enhance a mid layer there are glides of powders but just a twirled accord never standing on their own. The main notes I can pull are the coffee, guaiac, and amber. This is a sillage wonder. I have herod and the sillage is very soft same with layton. All these dark notes just add a sophistication to the ozonic mist that is a first for me. I am really surprised that people like this dry down so much. This is a guaiac bomb and I myself am in love. Such a good wood dry down it’s insane that this can be bought from a mall.
