Absinthe – the legendary green fairy, that entrancing vixen that brings visions, addiction and madness. Bacchanalian nights on the Moulin Rouge were fueled by this forbidden wormwood liquor that lives on the razor's edge of bitter and sweet, of cold and hot, of delirium and inspiration. Fou d'Absinthe opens with the steely grip of icy-cool alcohol, enveloped by the distinctive, slightly bitter, unnervingly true note of absinthe, touched with a brisk tingle of angelica. The unique “hot-cold” sensation continues as the crisp, cool bite of anise contrasts with the heat of a cocktail of four spices, before settling into a resinous blend of dry pine, fir balsam and woody cistus. Elegant and mesmerizing, the journey from the initial bracing, herbal sharpness to the deeply sweet and intoxicating mellowness at the end, makes us feel, for just a moment, as if we had actually indulged in contraband. We would follow this green fairy anywhere.

The first scent I fell in love with and got past a sample. Smells like chai tea on me and I love it. Performance is pretty great too but tbh I'm not huge about the dry down. Btw Aesop Gloam smells very similar in the opening and for the first hour, but given I didn't hold on to the test strip after that, can't say how the dry down compares.
Smells like Medicine love it
It plays with you. Changing things up ever 10 mins. Sometimes smells like grandmom, then butch. You never get use to it, so you always notice it's mood change.
