Pierre Guillaume Paris L’Ombre Fauve 8.1 Eau de Parfum begins with intense, spiced amber and will get extra leathery and animalic as the opposite notes transfer into focus, however inside 5 minutes, the composition was principally powdery musk with a tinge of amber beneath. The powdery musk continued by means of the drydown, although it grew to become softer, fuzzier, and extra mixed with candy, spiced woods and amber.
The notes are listed as amber, musk, woods, incense, and patchouli.
It opened with harsh, spiced amber, because it felt extra abrasive to my nostril on an early breath, however a darkish, earthy patchouli tempered the amber and introduced on its extra resinous qualities, which then shifted into a mixture of spiced amber, earthy patchouli, and leathery, animalic undertones. After 5 minutes, there was a powerful, powdery musk that enveloped the whole lot of the perfume that overwhelmed the amber and patchouli and created an aroma of candy powder and faint amber.
It was extraordinarily powdery and pretty musky for the subsequent hour and a half with little shift till about two hours in the place the amber appeared to take up about 30-40% of the area towards the powdery musk, which had the impact of most noticeably dropping the depth of the powdery really feel.
Over the subsequent few hours, the amber by no means amounted for greater than 50% of the composition, and because it reached the dry down, powdery musk took over once more, simply much less intense. The drydown additionally had a refined, sweetly-spiced woody undertone and resinous sweetness.
For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain effectively right here in any other case.
It lasted for six hours till it was a skin-scent and about 12 hours earlier than it was fairly troublesome to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been average with the sillage dropping quicker than the projection after two and a half hours of damage.
It ended up being far too powdery for me by means of most of its put on! There have been moments, particularly close to and within the drydown, the place the powdery musk was softer and cloud-like because it mixed with heat, spiced amber, that I fairly loved.
