I’ve been staring at the sweaty armpit that’s on my finger for the last 30 minutes trying to figure out what the hell happened and will it ever turn into something besides a body builder’s hair armpit fresh from the gym and how did I miss seeing that.
Okay, Sven just backed up a little bit. This from? L’Artisan? When I heard they were doing an oud, I sorta skipped over the “Duchafour is going to do it” part because, you know, it’s L’Artisan. I love a lot of their concoctions, but they tend not to ever get near the locker room. Dzing may be elephant butts, but they’re like cartoon elephant butts that only seem like they smell bad, but only in that wierd squiggly line way in the word bubble by their heads. This in my head was going to be an oud that was more in the Candy Ass variety – â„¢ via March – like Micallefs, which I love, but really have no bite to them. No way was I expecting a cumin-fest on the open. And we can’t talk about what I went through image googling for sweaty armpit. Who actually puts a picture of their butt with writing across it on the internet to be indexed by Google Images?
Let’s examine the evidence that Patty ignored about L’Artisan Al Oudh. Notes are Cumin, cardamom, pink pepper, date, rose, neroli, incense, saffron, leather note, oud, Atlas cedar, castoreum, civet, sandalwood, patchouli, myrrh, vanilla and tonka bean.
This is a cumin factory Serge would be proud of. Do I have anything else to say about it? Nope! I have no idea if I like it or not. Sweating Sven only backed away so I could breathe, but he’s still filling all my airspace with the results of his 20-mile run. At this point, I think it’s me. My nose is getting some other notes, but I can’t even concentrate on them at all, and I’m going to just label it shock and take another stab at it another day. I wish I were a little more coherent on this, but that’s all I’m getting.
