Perfumer Antoine Maisondieu

I can feel the woody amber with my nose. It is an acetone, shellac, sour, plastic quality. I don’t so much smell it as I perceive as the volatility of it as it pulls away from me.

And then I don’t really smell anything.

Great name, perplexing olfactory experience. It comes and goes in 5 minutes. A discrete, tidy performance that leaves me in a chin-scratching state.

I feel like I should applaud.
