Octopus and Abalone Diver
Ambergris accord, water lily, freesia, sea spray, molluscan seashell accord, and driftwood.

I'm generally not a fan of aquatics and this is no exception. There were hints of notes I liked in this (the ambergris accord?the wood?) but overall, no. Just no. It made me sneeze and I had to wash it off.


VS


Autumn Moon of the Mirror Stand
Honey, quince, vanilla, white cognac, Spanish mandarin, and golden tobacco.

Starts off with tart pear (must be the quince, maybe the mandarin) drenched in vanilla-honied cream (cream?) and then the tobacco rustles its way to the front (definitely get the sense of dry leaves here). The booze note is light and not really very boozy at all. Wonderful throw, with swirls of tobacco to balance out the tart and the sweet.


Winner:: Autumn Moon, no contest. Looking forward to seeing how long this lasts...
