This one just gets better as time passes. Camphor hits in the best way; this is the best handling of this ingredient I have experienced yet. Where others might go astringent, this settles in with the other elements to become wise and healing. Alluring.

Incense Intense

I was excited to try this scent from my sample box (it was the first one I tried!) based on the name alone. However, it fell flat for me. This scent, while I can detect some of the lighter floral and peppery notes, is just overwhelming incense scented to me. This perfume essentially to me smells like the same sorts of incense sticks that people burn. If you're into that, you will love this perfume! It was also a lasting scent, and I could still smell it on my wrists close to 24 hours later. That being said, I really like how the scent faded on my skin and I think the faded, lingering version of around 20ish hours actually smelled better than the new spray. It never smelled offensive, however, so I was never inclined to scrub my wrists clean. Just not for me. Long lasting, faded prettily, and a good smell if you're into a traditional incense scent.

Might be the best one!

So I was pretty deep into my love affair with ELDO before I tried Archives 69, so the bar was already set in the heavens. This one rises above it's already towering siblings. At first spray it definitely has the simultaneously familiar and otherworldly quality that is a signature of ELDO. Yes, there are "pink berries" and they are pink and maybe even fizzy. But at the same time there is a grown-up sexiness that is undeniable. It is also woody and cool, all perfectly balanced in a kinda of sultry breeze. But the dry-down!!! As usual, the departure seems to have very little relationship with the destination. For me it simmers along as a slightly fevered tuberose. Not really floral, but you know that scent of tuberose in a vase on your nightstand? How tuberose has that other-ness? You wake up in the middle of the night and sigh/smile/whimper? And you're wearing only a cashmere bathrobe (it should be pink in memoriam to those long lost berries) and everything feels so good that you don't want to sleep anymore because you KNOW it will never get any better than this...
and it goes on forever...
