  1. Very overpowering and realistic honey note, you literally feel you are smelling it an inch away. This has a lot of projection and will stay like it for about two hours or so then will start decling as the tobacco will start appearing a bit more.

  2. wanted this as soon as I read a review comparing it to my favorite shampoo Garnier Honey Treasures, I think that is one of the best smells in the world. Honey as a perfume note doesn’t always work on me though. This scent is VERY strong on application and a bit overwhelming (maybe the strongest Alkemia I’ve tried to date) but after a bit it mellows and YES while not an exact match, it is very similar to Honey Treasures, it’s sweet, deep, animalic, sticky raw and the tobacco is of the cigar type. If you love honey or tobacco this one is a must have, it’s addictive!

  3. Ugh, I can’t even begin to describe this scent. Okay.. so summer in the Midwest, sweet wildflowers, windows down brother has fresh bag of tobacco for his roll your owns. Just amazing, and very nostalgic. Definitely smells like ‘Le Petit Marseiliais’ body balm once dry down hits.

  4. The tobacco blooms, but the honey keeps it in check. There’s something minty underneath all of that, which adds a really interesting edge. There’s something in here that reminds me of Lush (in the best way), and I think it might be the waxy honeycomb. This is lovely and comforting, and not overwhelming or smothering.

  5. For once, a perfumer’s description is right on: Warm. Dark. Golden. Luminous. Untamed perfectly describes MdSeT. Dense, sweet, dark unburned tobacco and thick, golden, syrupy honey accented with barely-perceptible musky resin. Some of the best honey I’ve tried actually, even competing with NAVA’s amazing Black Honey accord. The scent does feel warm, in that wearing it makes you feel just a bit hotter. Almost smoldering. I had a similar experience with the myrrh in NAVA Egyptian Myrrh. Excellent scent, a must-try for honey and tobacco lovers. I know that combo is not uncommon, but Alkemia does that combo uncommonly well.

  6. This is one of the more unusual perfumes I’ve smelled. There’s an outdoorsy tanginess to the tobacco note. It’s very strong and overpowering initially, but this dries into warm, cozy, indulgent scent. Still a bit unusual.
