Wode

Eau de Parfum

by Boudicca

The Scoop
Wode opens with spices and green– coriander, cardamom, clary sage and juniper berries. There is clean earth and a hint of flowers and ocean and it all seems quite brisk and pleasant, until the opium accord kicks in, bitter and unsettling and hopelessly attractive. A stroll in the woods becomes a trek through a primeval forest with a few glowing yellow eyes peering at you from the shadows. A dark and ethereal swirl of resins and animalic notes dances around a heart of amber, leather and musk-- and there is an intriguing undercurrent of something raw and untamed, softened by a soft whisper of sweetly narcotic tuberose. The overall impression is not heavy – but airy and elemental, like the landscape after a fierce and cleansing storm. Iconoclast perfumer Geza Schoen (of Escentric Molecules fame) has taken his inspiration from the scent of raw opium. It reminds us of wet stone, and the way rain unlocks mysterious scents from the earth. Imagine dancing around Stonehenge while thunder rolls through the sky. The inspiration is ancient, but the scent itself is very modern–unusual, intriguing, and subtle enough to make it easy to wear, for both men and women. Appropriately addictive.

I purchased a few samples of this lovely parfum back in late summer '13. I was deeply intrigued by the description and Luckyscent's scoop. My intuition told me this would be a scent that I will fall in love with and absolutely adore. Then I received it, and my intuition was spot on. I fell madly in love with it. It's magical and ethereal. It has metaphysical-like qualities that I look for in a perfume, and can be so hard to find. I always feel like I've been whisked away to a foreign land in another realm. Sadly, "life" happened, and I became busy and distracted and though I adored this perfume, once I ran out I didn't purchase anymore. Between a few moves and keeping busy, I had forgotten about some of the samples I purchased last year. Then I came on Luckyscent to purchase a few samples, and saw this one listed as a favorite. I immediately went to see if I had any of my samples left. It had been so long since I experienced it. Much to my surprise I still had a couple drops left. Ahh... bliss. Pure bliss. Magic in a vial. I will be purchasing a bottle soon. This is definitely one of my favorite parfums. Love, love, love.

Used to essential oils I applied a tad too much and experienced that "marinated in perfume" sense for a while, but 8 hours later I am INTOXICATED with the scent!! Oh my..... the tones on my skin are a musky leather-like amber with the faintest floral overtones! It's earthy and sensual and reminds me of midnight walks through the magnolia trees after a thunderstorm in Virginia! It really does go through an array of fragrances as it blends with your skin and personal musk. It's fabulous, nymph-like! I accidentally spilled a drop of Lavendualla over the wode while taking a sniff and I like the combination so much I might have to wear it more often!

A very intriguing incense fragrance with an Old Soul aura. Opens with green transparent incense woods that smells like freshly cut lumber or fallen trees deep in the forest. On top of the incense green is a resinous frankincense/leather note with a bit of musk which adds a nice presence of mankind. Another dimension at the drydown is a sweet soft of tonka that almost makes it too sweet and civilized. This is a well blended and mysterious incense fragrance. One of the best I've smelled.

Starts very green, like being slapped in the face with a wet branch, then grows into something softer and citrusier. Drydown is really sumptious and it stays complex, and truly unisex. Fresh, sharp, less cologney with time.

Amazing scent. Cannot live without it. Next level from Molecule 1 and 2.

For my skin, this is positively the best green scent I have found so far. The opener was a bit jarring and just OK and I didn't expect to like it, but as it wore on and melded with my skin I found it to be both odd and extremely beautiful. **If department store perfumes smelled this good I could save myself a small fortune.

Wode's a rare beauty. Warm, earthy, sultry, invigorating. It does smell like wet stone intially, but after a little while warm sensual amber and animalic notes meld with refreshing green notes that does make one think of a wild eyed fierce warrior woman, the musky warmth of her skin hot from battle and the scent of the forest where she's been fighting. This one may be a little too androgynous for an everyday scent but definitely something to kept in my scent wardrobe.

Whoa. This one is very nice. Exotic and pulls no punches.

It is an incredible scent. An innovative scent. A scent so incredibly true to the work they create. Intensely emotive,strong,romantic,refined and subversively imposing. i have never smelled anything like it.
