SOTD is Sultan Pasha's Ambrecuir (AC).
I've noted before that this exudes an insurmountable stench of Betadine. Mulling it over in my head, I decided it was because, on SP's wildly varying concentration/power scale, AC is right at the end in the "nuclear" range, with the likes of Pure Incense.
So I thought I'd give it another go. Grabbed a Q-tip, and scraped delicately the edge of the lid of the sample vial with the cotton bud end (imagine how little that is) then liberally spread whatever the cotton had picked up over my left wrist.
This time, I picked up three distinct notes - and they are still powerful, I can still detect the scent with my arm all the way down despite the minute quantity - which are animalics, leather and what I suspect is the amber (I'm not that well versed in the various ambers). There's also a slight almond note, but that could be just me making associations already...
Diluted like this, allowed to spread, the scent has a luxurious minimalist, modern quality to it; I'd say something like Mies' Barcelona Pavilion (https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/42/The_Barcelona_Pavilion,_Barcelona,_2010.jpg
). It's suddenly shot up my preference list, somewhere in the top 3 or 5, and its dryness (especially compared to the rest of the SP line) makes it, I think, appropriate for professional occasions.
Another reminder, too, to try lighter dosage before dismissing any SP attar.
