Annick Goutal Les Orientalistes Musc Nomade Eau de Parfum Spray 100ml is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Puddley from Fleeting beauty The magician produces his beautiful assistant, glittering and radiant, he draws her close to him, shrouds her in his cloak, then poof! She's gone.. A musk is a little like the assistant, a moment of utter wonder that shows us her beauty and then vanishes into the air. As with most high quality musk scents, they are subtle and fleeting, in fact some of us cannot detect their grace and presence at all, something scientific to do with large molecules that betray our noses. However, Annick Goutal has offered us a musk of greatness, that although similarly fleeting, gives us a little more molecule to hang on to. To do this, there is an inclusion of dense woody and resinous notes. Rosewood and Papyrus imbue a deep, smoked wood quality with suggestions of dry incense. Perhaps this is where the 'nomade' element lies, alike campfires in the desert. Labdanum brings an element of softness, a creamy quality to compliment the dry wood smoke. These additional woody notes add a gravitas and staying power to the delicate and elusive musk. I am eager to try this on a warm day as I feel that in winter it is very much a 'skin scent' that does not project into the air around us. I imagine that with heat and humidity this extraordinary scent will radiate a profoundly sexy aura of musky humanity and a sense of the exoticness of the Orient.
