his is not a new release, but I have only just heard about this seemingly amazing scent, Juozas Statkevicius Eau de Parfum
by Juozas Statkevičius
(Josef Statkus), a Lithuanian fashion designer. Just look at the bottle!
Just look at the ad! (With this kind of ad they could seel me anything, even Cool Water)
Just read the description! (Red Alert for all the lovers of incense! I repeat, Red Alert!) :
Incense is at the very heart of this composition. It embodies contrasts such as shadow and light, past and modernity, simplicity and complexity, power and softness. These paradoxes make it one of the most difficult elements to master in perfume creation, as the perfect harmony can only be reached with infinitely subtle balances.
By creating a precious case of white jasmine, patchouli, and coriander around the incense, Fabrice Pellegrin allowed it to reveal its true beauty, without appearing too dark, too dense or too austere. Vanilla, Benjoin, and Muscs also contribute, thanks to their lusciousness and modernity, to tame the incense and let it fully express its ambery and warm notes.
Cashmere wood and coriander bring a noble character and subtly enhance this indulgent and unique combination, for an intense, authentic and lasting impression. (From Statkevicius.com)
Do you understand now why I am so desperate to try this?! Unfortunately, Juozas Statkevicius EDP is only apparently sold in Lithuania... Oh woe is me.
