Secret Absolu is the reminiscence of an oud scent from a trip to a faraway land, a memory of a spice market eternally lodged in our olfactory memory….
Bergamot, cypress, and pepper in the head notes, cedar, white amber, and violet petals in the heart notes, all resting on a precious base of oud, leather, tonka bean, musk, with a dash of vetiver and patchouli.
Top: Bergamot, Cypress, Pepper
Middle: Cedarwood, White Amber, Violet Leaf
Base: Oud, Leather, Tonka Bean, Musk, Vetiver, Patchouli
HOW IT WEARS
Secret Absolut gives us all the warm, salty/sweet balsamic wood vibes…opening with fresh cypress, black pepper and bergamot that settles smoothly into the bed of cedar, leather, oud, musk and tonka at its base. Despite being an EDT, Valentin lasts on the skin for 4-6 hours easily!
Filtered light shines through thick canopies, illuminating the damp, mossy undergrowth of the tallest woods. A deep, warm, spicy animalic wood. Think Farenheit by Dior, Carner’s Drakon, or something with an equally resinous base and sharp, cooler notes on top.
