Summary: this fragrance begin with a intense sinthetyc pineapple note mixed with citrus and touch of aldehydes, the heart seems empty lightly leathery, and the base develops some light woody sweet amber note composed with ambroxan, norlimbanol, ethyl maltol and cashmeran.
Summary: One of my first parfumes. I did like it at the first look, but after I bought it I regret. Found it tooo sweet, nauseating and feminine. Maybe for very cold winter night, but even then is too much. Wasted money for me.
Summary: Black XS was one of the first 'adult' fragrances I purchased and I liked it for quite a while. Calamansi (kalamanzi) is a citrus fruit often used in Filipino cooking - kumquat would be its closest relative - however I get very little of that here, probably because it has been coated in patchouli, praline and cardamom. The drydown is unquestionably a synthetic strawberry accord, 'fruitchouli' as someone else mentioned.
Summary: This is a highly synthetic, screechy, jarring concoction that seldom fails to hit my sinuses with a fistful of ice picks. The lack of depth contributes to the sharpness that it scrapes my nerves with. It almost triggers a gag reflex.I've been wanting to like it for years, making all sorts of overtures from time to time, but we just don't click. I think in this case there's just TOO MUCH CHEMISTRY. More is less sort of thing...
