Hits the nose with an aggressive pungency, due to the dominance of woody-amber chemicals (Givaudanís karanal, or similar, for the technically minded). I like these powerful woody smells but normally they are used with more subtlety and restraint. This kind of overdosing might be expected of an amateur perfumer but that cannot be the explanation here. Never mind, at least it's a bit original. The rest of the perfume, citrus-orangeflower, might have been quite pleasant if it had been given a chance. Reduce the karanal by ninety percent, reduce the price by ninety percent, and maybe I'll buy it.
