Pafums Quartana Wolfsbane ,Joseph Quartana (Sample) New (Review) this is classified as an Oriental, the notes are Angelica, Fig Leaf, Cumin, Absinthe, Ginger, Patchouli, Vetiver, Tuberose, Benzoin, Tuber, Sandalwood, Cedar, Castoreum and Tobacco Blossom."Welcome to the dark side, spray if you dare!"Parfums Quartana Wolfsbane is one of the darkest, dirtiest, animalic fragrances I have ever smelled, it takes every filthy note you can think of Patchouli, Vetiver, Cumin and Castoreum and makes it a force to be reckoned with.
The only bright spots to this fragrance are the Angelica and Benzoin, even Angelica to a point can be ripe and putrid, the benzoin is slightly sweet and milky, it alleviates the dirtiness to a degree.
I get a herbal, moist, aromatic, with a touch of green angelica, that penetrates a musty, grassy, murky, grounded, patchouli, and a skanky, over the top, bold cumin.
Then a black, spiced, brown colored, bleak, dank vetiver, rounds out a slightly sweet, rich, with a touch of vanilla, and a pungent, musky, animalic, leather tinged castoreum,
I get the Angelica, Cumin, Castoreum, Vetiver, Benzoin and Patchouli, it opens up with a dirty, earthy patchouli, and a pungent herbal angelica, the patchouli is strong, the angelica is mild.
After thirty minutes the patchouli dissipates, the angelica softens, in comes a ripe, aromatic cumin, and a smoky, grassy vetiver, the cumin is strong, the vetiver is soft.
After four hours the angelica and vetiver dissipate, the cumin softens, in comes a creamy, nutty benzoin, and a murky, thick castoreum, the benzoin is mild, the castoreum is strong.
Wolfsbane is a very, dark, dramatic, a touch of spiciness, subtle woodiness, and white floral nuances, unisex, it leans more masculine, Oriental fragrance.
This would be perfect for the Fall and Winter, I get average projection and good longevity, excellent fragrance Joseph Quartana, if you like them dark and dirty, 4/5 Stars.
