Interlude 53 is a wonderful discovery and a deeper story of the iconic Interlude fragrance. Elevating it to new heights, it unfurls across every dimension - wider, deeper, longer, more intense - and gifted further with an extended longevity.
53 is the dosage of the Extrait. It means that Interlude 53 contains 53% of fragrance oils, and therefore, more pure oils than alcohol. As a comparison, the original Interlude EDP contains 25% of fragrance oils.
Top: Bergamot, oregano, pimento berry oil
Heart: Amber, frankincense, cistus, opoponax
Base: Leather, agarwood smoke, patchouli, sandalwood
I don't know a lot about perfumes but this has a definitive woodsy smell that lingers, it exudes masculinity and I typically mix it with a more feminine scent but that's a personal preference.
The scent is a Beast of a performer and a awesome scent . I gave this a 5 in part because of the customer service excellence from Twisted Lily
