Lentisk resinoid, Jasmine
Musk, Cedarwood, Incense
(untitled) is a beautiful green perfume that is light enough for summer and pleasantly dense. It starts off with an incense laden galbanum. It is intense to begin with but rapidly softens on my skin. My experience with galbanum is a strange one. When I play with Galbanum essential oil, it turns "oily" on me. Yes, oily! That is the best I can explain the heaviness I feel. Galbanum is the reason why some perfumes don't work on me (like Chanel Nº19 and Poudre version). Galbanum in (untitled) starts off exactly with that same oiliness but quickly turns into an aromatic powder. Lovely transformation! I love the herbal, green, aromatic, powdery galbanum in (untitled) combined with the coldness of incense. (Lentisk/mastic is another note included that I have been hearing in quite a few places lately. The new Sisley for men, Eau d'Ikar also has it. Need to research this note)
Once the green phase tones down, it diffuses into fine woody musk, very sheer and skin like with gentle floral undertones and still has a cold trace of incense. This blissful combination lies on the skin like perfumed veil. The staying power is great, though the silage is close to skin. It is most definitely unisex. I think it makes a great summer perfume, fresh, light and tender.
L'Eau another release from MMM is a fresher, clean lime/lemony citrus scent that would please the citrus lovers. I prefer the original. The wow factor of (untitled) is in its simplicity creating a classic, clean smell that feels inspired. It is effortlessly elegant. Worthy of a full bottle.
