LURK TBP V1

21 Feb

Thank you so much Lurk, for the gorgeous sample.
When I hold the test vial of TBP V1 to my nose, the first words that come to mind are: sour elixir.

TBP V1 is mysterious and grabs my attention. It slowly motions to me with one finger to “come closer…”
On first application, it is a spicy, dry balsamic floral, a powdery dry rose with a fluid black pepper opening.

TBP V1 is a quiet, metamorphic fragrance. It opens with black pepper stripped of its antagonistic properties. The muted florals fuse together with the pepper to create a tea-like harmony.

TBP V1 is a goodbye hug from the mother of my host family in Ankara. As I sink my nose into the fabric on her shoulder, I can smell the whole room, and the essence of my time there.

It contains the quality of a deep red rose that has dried, causing the petals to appear a cool matte burgundy that is almost black.

The dry down is a cool, dusty burgundy hue, more powdery than before, slightly bitter with a rose note, and something paler like peony, with twigs and leaves and some lingering spice. TBP V1 is a very natural interpretation of a spicy, dry balsamic floral.

Sillage is average, and longevity is quite good for an all-natural perfume. I honestly think it deserves some time to fully experience and appreciate, but these are my first impressions.
