Two out of Three...Odin 02- Owari and Odin 03- Century
Clearly I've been struck blind. I was in ScentBar this weekend (I know, it is a well used phrase in my life) and ran across these new scents. I asked for samples of the two there and then came home to find that I somehow missed one. Odin 01-Nomad is tonka, sandalwood and juniper apparently. Someone else chime in as to whether it's all that.
Odin 02- Owari is mandarin (from the Owari province in Japan), bergamot and grapefruit leaves. I get grapefruit: fresh, delicious and sweet. After a while it adds pepper and musk but never really veers from the tart and refreshing citrus. No bad thing that.
Odin 03- Century is clearly hunting bigger game. Odin writes that it's a "modern interpretation of the chypre family". It opens woody with a hint of mint, then deepens with patchouli (listed as "subtle patchouli") and finishes with amber and a touch of musk and, yes, OAKMOSS. Hallelujah and praise Odin! Yes, you can get a real fragrance with the dreaded oakmoss, and yes you can smell it in there, and oh baby is it a good thing!
In your face, IFRA!
Available at Aedes, Luckyscent and the Odin stores in New York City, $110 for 100ML, which you should also call and thank them for...
