- so awesome Review by lisa
- I ordered a sample of this just because the name was so odd. My first sniff was not a good judgement of the oil. It was pungent, and coarse. I'm so glad i didn't judge it too soon! I went back to it and diluted it a bit and OH MY!It was a masculine deep woody leathery scent. I mixed it with cedarwood and vetiver and a bit of citrus and it is delicious and sexy. I call it leather and everyone agrees. (Posted on 5/23/13)
- Leathery and Masculine Review by Del
- Smokey, leathery, woody, and a little bit sweet. When diluted, the leathery hints become stronger. Its very masculine, but it blends well with florals if only a few drops are added to an entire blend. I found the woody hints very soft, and I smelled it as being more smokey/leathery than anything else. (Posted on 2/18/13)
- A Fine Wood/Piney Scent Review by Mich
- Partial to woodsy scents, I ordered a sample of Eden's Nagarmotha (Cypriol). It leans more towards a pine scent then either patchouli or vetiver, but is within the same family of scent. It mellows on the skin to be more akin to patchouli than vetiver, but slightly sweeter without patchouli's overwhelming, pervading quality. A good woodnote, but not overpowering. (Posted on 12/28/12)
