Hello Posse. Right here’s one other fragrance home I’m simply studying about now. Der Duft are an attention-grabbing crew. They’ve 6 scents created in collaboration with completely different perfumers. Act has been created with Prin Lomros. You’ll know the title from Prin, Peissana, Pryn Parfum and Strangers Parfumerie. Prin has additionally labored on plenty of the Zoologist perfumes.

From director Anselm Skogstad on the Der Duft site: “I created a fragrance home with a model title that conveys a easy message to anybody occupied with scents. There isn’t a want for additional explanations or complicated tales. Calling my model ‘Der Duft’ (The Scent) is to the purpose. The intention is that every fragrance, every scent creates its personal story and affiliation for the particular person sporting it.”

The philosophy that all of us get an opportunity to put on the perfume and not using a story connected is new. I prefer it. All of a sudden I’m not attempting to suit the perfume right into a imaginative and prescient offered by a advertising and marketing workforce and artistic director. It doesn’t must make me really feel horny, considerate, male or feminine, melancholy, energised or no matter claptrap they provide up with photos of one of many world’s iconic actors or hunger sick fashions on a motorcycle. So on this vein i’m going to chorus from telling you something however what I odor.

Opening is citrus however I additionally odor that tremendous Thai Penang curry. Perhaps it’s the lime and star fruit however nowhere accounts for that spicy/creamy hit I’m getting. Tremendous bizarre. Lovely. Might the vetiver be giving a lemongrass vibe? Woods arrive, they’re sharp and inexperienced, very evenly salted. So many nuances and I’m loving it.

About half-hour in there’s a very industrial undertow. Like a salt water swimming pool. Very cool addition. The primary hour of Act may simply match into the mid Christopher Chong years at Amouage. Then the perfume pumps itself out, slowly fading for the subsequent hour or so until it’s a mushy melange of the main gamers, a whiff obtainable solely up shut.

Unisex, longevity good and projection reasonable after the primary 20 minutes. I’m actually glad Act was my first sniff of the Der Duft line. It has whetted my urge for food for extra.

One thing else in regards to the model, 50ml is 120 euros. It’s not low-cost however it’s reasonably priced by fashionable area of interest requirements. Additionally Der Duft site has a 5 x 2ml pattern set for 20 euros.

You possibly can see by the image above that I grabbed my decant from Surrender To Chance.
