So I finally got a sample of Interlude Man, and decided to spray it on my arm. One spray from a sample vial. 11:30pm, as I'm checking my email and BN forums. Oh... my... lord... This thing is thermonuclear in strength. It's been half an hour now and I think it actually got stronger!
I know it's only first impression, but I think I love it. It's... incense, smoke, leather, amber, opoponax, oh my. The scent is invigorating and pushes virtually all fragrance boundaries. However, it's - too much!! It's too strong... There is something in it, a note, that is giving me a huge huge headache. I don't think I'll be able to go to sleep with this on my arm. On one hand I want to scrub it off - only because of the headache, but on the other hand I want to keep smelling it because it's so... different, and so... over the top smoky incense!
Now I completely appreciate and understand the jokes when you guys say there's no way you could go through a full bottle of this in your lifetime. With this level potency, I think perhaps they should sell it in 1oz bottles, max.
Great scent, really, I just have to figure out now what this note is that is giving me this terrible headache. Ouch, it hurts.
