No.542 Complex - Oriental Unisex

£24.00
Bottle Size

This isn't a fragrance for the feint-hearted. It's strong, punchy and has the capacity to easily blow you away if you're not careful! This is meant to represent the sensuous combination of oud and synthetic leather, and is a combination of woods, resins and musk. It's highly unusual and unique, and at first smells incredibly earthy - by far the earthiest fragrance we have - almost as if someone has just dug up a piece of soil and exposed the roots of what was growing beneath. Later, however, it begins to change and more of the floral and resin notes peek out from below, leaving an almost sweet, fruity aftertaste that blends in with the leathery, woody notes. It has incredible projection - just a couple of sprays can easily fill a room - and lasts all day. As the name suggests, this perfume is very complex and not to be judged on first impressions. Highly unique, unisex and not in the slightest bit commercial.

Earth/forest floor, smoke, incense, bitter herbs and muted violet. Smells like a pagan ritual in the forest. I've just finished a bottle of the original complex, I love it but I am not in the target demographic (i.e. I have to watch my pennies)...

Earth/forest floor, smoke, incense, bitter herbs and muted violet. Smells like a pagan ritual in the forest. I've just finished a bottle of the original complex, I love it but I am not in the target demographic (i.e. I have to watch my pennies) and decided to look around for a cruelty free alternative. I was very surprised to find a vegan dupe. The original has a strong medicinal herbal top note, which Iasts a little while. In this version the opening is not as punchy. In the dry down I can't tell the difference between them. This version is maybe not as extraordinarily strong and long lasting as the original, but very good for the price, it lasts all day. One star off for the lack of opening kick, but added back on because I no longer hand over hard earned cash for a Harrods concession/promotional events for footballers etc. I'll keep buying it for as long as it's available. Thanks.
