L Artisan Parfumeur Passage d’Enfer

24 Feb

Passage d’Enfer begins with smoky floral incense. The incense seems lit to me, emitting a fine ribbon of smoke, but it also has a powdery quality as if it were still unlit and waiting within its long, fragrant cardboard box.

Passage d’Enfer excels at balance. It is difficult to separate and identify the individual elements. It smells like “itself,” which in my opinion, is the mark of a unique and well-blended fragrance.

It sometimes reminds me of the incense burned at road stops in Western China near the bathrooms as air freshener. Passage d’Enfer however, is more floral and fresh and soapy than those thin pungent sticks. In the dry down, the woods and powder become more prominent, but the incense continues to form a soft trail.

Projection is good, and longevity is some of the best I have known from

L Artisan.

I think this fragrance is perfect for cool overcast or rainy days in Spring, because the fresh wet gray of the weather is the perfect compliment to this smoky pink and balmy incense.
