I decided to give my colleagues at work a break today, having clubbed them with Knize Ten yesterday.
Just at the end of the work day, I applied Fougere Bengale, and cautiously.
Starts as a barbershop frag, and l like those. Good. About 10m later, WHOA! Immortelle tobacco and a funky, pissy, sweaty note have completely displaced the barbers!
That sweaty/pissy note IDs itself as cumin, and there's some curry in there too. I don't like those notes a little bit; or so I think. Slowly, they get more interesting. Is it me? or the frag?what the? I have no idea what to make of this.
At the 2.5 hr mark, the frag evolves again, heading to vanilla + oak moss territory, with the immortelle and curry in the background. Sounds bad, right? Nope. Its great.
this guy Corticchiato know his stuff!
