A very pretty, very feminine scent. Sharp carnation and well-rounded rose in the bottle, with a milky touch that (thankfully) didn't sour on me. A couple hours in I swear I smell floral honey cakes, or maybe shortbread. Eventually, this dries to a powdery rose, giving it distinct impression of a Victorian tea party in Hyde Park. I like all of the notes individually but unfortunately, anything powder is a deal-breaker for me.

Mmm, where do I start? Dorian is a gorgeous, well-balanced unisex perfume. When slathered on, the lemon takes precedence and melds beautifully with the more herbaceous fougère and pale musks (the traditionally masculine notes). As it dries, the sharpness tempers considerably, leaving a very subtle sugary scent with a base of rich black tea. I can’t get over the delicate freshness of Dorian. I love when perfumes mix green notes and sweet notes, and this is a top-tier example of that as far as I’m concerned. Will definitely repurchase!

Description – I know, my dear Watson, that you share my love of all that is bizarre and outside the conventions and humdrum routine of everyday life. Tweed and crisp linen, lime-tinged aftershave, the sleek steel and oil of a well-cared for service revolver, and the echo of a Jezail bullet shell. In the Bottle – I can smell the lime-tinged aftershave. You know what? I like lime. Therefore, I shall give this a whirl. Elementary, my dear Watson. Wet and in first 5 minutes – Lime and linen. Quite delish. A hint of gun oil – that clean, machine-smelling oil. This is not a bad thing. But wait! The machine oil begins to overtake the lime and linen. How odd. Watson is ready for battle on me. I’m sure he’s quite the gentleman with others, but here his pistol is cocked and aimed, ready to fire. After half an hour – I believe Watson has indeed removed his linen shirt. Still a whiff of the old lime aftershave, but we also have gun oil, which reminds me of ‘eau-de-mechanic”. This is not a bad thing – I quite like a man who’s prepared to get his hands dirty. And, he appears to be getting his hands dirty on me… Oh, Doctor Watson, you shouldn’t. Oh! Oh… Final Verdict – John Watson is not a man I can take out in public. I shall keep him at home.
