Om (Miller et Bertaux)

It's very difficult to call an sweet Oriental fragrance "bad", but it is possible to call it "boring". This one's exceedingly so. Yes, it's very pretty, but what does it do to advance, overturn, or reinterpret the genre? Nothing-- not even with items as intriguing as clove leaf and wood smoke mixed into the usual baklava syrup. It makes no impression and leaves behind no strong desire to wear it again. In fact, the only measurable effect it had on me was to increase my desire to wear something else-- and that's exactly what I ended up doing.

Scent Elements: Myrrh, clove leaf, patchouli, peppercorn, hot pepper, flowers, wood smoke, incense and vanilla.
