this, to me, smells exactly like the metallic wrapper from juicy fruit gum. it's a tiny bit sweet, quite powdery, little metallic. i don't hate it but i'm glad i only ordered a sample as i don't think i'd reach for it much

Really well named. Nicely balanced, bit metallic to my nose but not overly harsh.

Straight up wood scents are not my jam, but this on intrigues me. Starts with the scent of a pencil box heavy on the cedar wood and a bit of tinder. There is a note that is hard to pinpoint straightaway but the aldehydes and ketones which we associate with metal come though. (Today I learned metals such as iron and copper actually react with oils on our skins and create molecules (aldehydes and ketones) which the human nose is highly sensitive to.). A bit of saltiness in Radio Bombay, almost a light sweat note, as the perfume wears on. Longevity for me was a good 4-5 hours, but when it was gone, it was really gone from my skin.

A modern evocative take on sandalwood, this light airy beauty combines a central note of sandalwood with notes of musk mallow, iris, boronia, balsam fir, and a slight hint of coconut to evoke a 'spot on' of many Mumbai apartment homes. This is probably as close to the smell of my mothers Mumbai apartment. It's all the sandalwood incense burnt with the saltiness of the dampness left by the heavy monsoons. It is not for those wanting a straight sandalwood but more of an ambient sandalwood which is musky and somewhat musty. Light to moderate sillage and longevity and unisex. One of the cutest perfumes I have in my collection but it is a matter of individual taste and preference.

Gorgeous creamy sandalwood and cedar! The perfect creamy wood scent for both men and women.

Gorgeous, tropical, creamy wood! I can not get enough! The coconut seems to play very nicely with the wood and not take over. I don't get the "copper" note. I don't notice anything like that at all. But whatever, it's amazing stuff.

DS & Durga being site-specific and gorgeous again. The copper note at the top is quick to move on, but while it's there it adds a modern, clear note to the sandalwood and cedar proceedings. Next to the coconut in the heart, iris (or is that the less-familiar boronia?) presents as cumin-like -- a little dry, a little spice-like, and pleasantly warm. All this is delightful, and then comes the delicious drydown -- relaxed and perfectly modulated. Wonderful in all respects.

I love this! It starts warm and spicy and then leaves me enveloped in a comforting cloud of cedar, which apparently no one but me could smell. Like having a secret room.
