The mood is Gothic; the scene, a dungeon; the scent, an unsettling dip into olfactory taboos. This is leather at its darkest, spiked with metallic studs of violet, lashed with the aromatic essences of basil and sage. Musk straddles the boundary between the herbal and animal realms, before submitting to the whip of leather – tarry, bitter, almost licorice-like in its somber facets. An animal aroma of Oud wood suffuses the scene with the smell of hot, yielding flesh. Incense fumes bathe the ritual in their searing whorls. Heed the stern command of Complex and let the ceremony commence. Just don't say you haven't been warned.
Sage, basil, violet, incense, leather, musk, oud
Two stars only because I have to imagine this smells good to some people out there. To me it’s awful and smells like bug spray, harsh, like cleaning chemicals even. But a few other high end colognes I’ve tried smell similar so this category of scent is just not for me.
Starts off as fresh sawdust/woody - as if one was in a furniture factory/shop - In a real nice way it took me into my childhood-when one used to have carpenters and masonry. Try it/you might like it!
Boacidea the Victorious the Explorer I like best, but Complex is a close second.
