How? I Apply the Fragrance

Before I saw score on fragrantica I wrote all of this and i am not surprised at there score. This is sad for this house, they are really trying to do something special it’s there it’s just largely shadowed by trying to be the same and different. You need to go all in and be yourself. It’s like they can’t help it. Here given permission to use top ingredients. The heavy synthetic carrier just washed away the beauty of what’s in there. This thing is packed with goodness but tainted. It’s like seeing an oil spill in the ocean. Beautiful water everywhere but this big glob of oil ruining everything in it’s path. I know it’s harsh criticism, but the price is at a level where more is expected. I am starting to think that perfumers who spend their life working with synthetics have a lot tougher time with naturals than I thought. It’s like taking a chef who is used to one region and asking him to instantly create classics from a whole different cuisine. Fragrance in my opinion compared to Perfumes Notes I get a sea shell animalic on top. Ambergris is there, but also is soap. It’s a trademark of most perfumers they just have to put fresh in everything they touch. I don’t think it works on the top here. There is something dark and intriguing that wants to show itself but is covered by this layer of suds.

  1. Oh, man! I had to stop the video at 4:25 and try on the sample. First sniff, I picture the white frothy, dirty mossy seaweed foam of a cold beach in winter. I get your “muddled” comment but to me, it’s atmospheric in that way, muddied salt water. I smell dirty ambergris, oud, a minty herbal freshness, a dirty smell that smells like civet, muskiness>> ambrette seed? I don’t know ambroxan well enough to pick it out (I avoid men’s designer scents), this seems like real ambergris to me though. I get a rubber note mixed with musky aquatic stuff (like an aftershave). I get what you mean about the synthetics overpowering the naturals. It’s pretty masculine to me for that reason> it smells like a designer scent with really good ambergris mixed in? I get your critique based on the price point. There are other real ambergris scents for cheaper. I know Aftel has natural ambergris and supplies other perfumers. Doesn’t Guerlain Encense Mythique d’Orient have real ambergris? I think I remember Eugen talking about hearing that directly from the perfumer. I love Orca by House of Matriarch for ambergris. I can think of other realistic aquatic scents, like Sea of Gray by Solstice Scents (that is dirty seaweed, sea air, vanilla/-interesting). I had to research this more after sniffing, and LuckyScent mentions the yeasty sweaty head of a child. Yes> yeasty makes sense! I couldn’t believe all the florals listed the notes. White florals? Is the rubber I smell the oud or the tuberose? All I know is that Walk the Sea by Kerosene is a crisper, more defined white floral aquatic (for way less $). Another review mentioned leather. I don’t get that really. Sour milk. I don’t know, the whole thing doesn’t smell bad to me, it smells like a man wearing a designer scent by the ocean. ???? I too, however, am perplexed by the price point!

    1. This review was now over three weeks ago. I know have a pretty good hand on what is causing such a skin reaction on my skin I why I think there is such a divide on certain fragrances and why some people won't wear perfumes, because they have had this reaction and don't want it ever again. I have no doubt there was authentic ambergris in here. I am actually going back and forth with a perfumer right now discussing this topic. She is saying a few people report a certain scent including me. And she says there is no ingredients close to it, then we got on the subject of synthetics and the culprit synthetic is used in her creation which is top notch ingredients but with the synthetic added in for longevity and projection. It literally causes a reaction on skin to some people that changes the entire fragrance including myself. If you watch Peter and his sister's video on the mendittorosa bottle. They get an entire different wearing on their skin to each other. I even commented to him we need to learn more about skin chemistry. So far in my findings all the major reaction differences are from molecule based perfumes. This is a hot topic for me right now and it's one I think is better to talk about then regurgitated lists of the exact same perfumes in different orders. LOL a little passionate on this topic.

    2. Therapeutic Fragrance If the perfumers studied more the different reactions of synthetics (meaning how we perceive them/how it alters their fragrance), then they may be less gung ho about using them. I know there is a synthetic that overpowers everything else for me and feels like it burns my nose. Yes, I’m fascinated, too, about how scents really do smell different on people’s skin AND are perceived differently.

  2. I like some aspects of the house's offerings and they do have quality notes but the price is totally undeserving. I nearly purchase Melt My Heart because its totally me, but i'm glad i didn't after seeing free stuff being given away on IG or being reviewed by influencers who can't dissect the scent as well as you do (i'm sorry if this is snobbery). If they can give it away like that like yesterday's takeaway, it kinda knocked back some sense into my head on how much smoke and mirrors this bullshit of an industry is. Sorry for the rant. Its a bad monday.
