Grasslands sizzles. Sunlight (the dry smoke of frankincense and myrrh) replaces nighttime’s verdant dew. Jasmine, the fading heartbeat of night, winds its way in and out of our consciousness.  Animalic castoreum and civet are still-slumbering beasts, while leather and oud comprise the sinewy, silent predators who snake through the morning, hunting for a piece of sleep-encumbered luck. Simultaneously timid and audacious, this fragrance is a sweet, green, dirty awakening.

    This is the best Nishane for me yet. This opens with a myrrh incense smoke. The animalic notes are there, just done in a modern way in which they don’t shout. There is a suede-like leather there in the dry down, but on me this ends up an oud scent. An eclectic array of notes blended very well! Thumbs up!

    It reminds me of Gucci pour Homme, but with a twist. It explodes with an initial strong animal/civet, leather, and smoky/incense smell. When it dries, the animal smell moves to the background (never leaving the duration of the scent), and really blends well with the other notes listed turning into this very sweet, smoky, animal leather blend. You really have to try hard to smell the different notes, for it is so well blended. On me, it lasts overnight (8+ hours). Projection for the first hour or two is arms length, but it becomes a personal bubble thing for the remainder of the time wearing it. I absolutely love it. It is mainly a fall/winter scent (below 65 F), but I feel that you can pull this off in warmer temperatures if you tone down how many sprays you do.
