An unknown synthetic revolution

Eau de Froehliche No.3 by Erik Kormann

Now it's time to unveil another hidden indie niche house abd its almost-most-famous creation Eau de Froehliche No.3.
This perfume rings a bell of that awkward moment when you realize the art side of perfumery has no sit among widespread niche and notorious wallet suckers such as Maison Francis Kurkdjian and pretentious Clive Christian that occupy the remaining shelves that vast army of glimmering barbies of Montale and incessant expansion of Bond No9 have left.

Top Note: Black Currant, Lemon, Pink Pepper
Heart Note: Cassyran, Green of Leaves, Rosemary, Geranium, Rose, Fruity Notes
Base Note: Frankincense, Cashmeran wood, Savory, Cedar, Sandalwood, Ambergris, Musk
All the beauty behind No. 3 is for its black currant buds and leaves knitted with cashmeran wood and incense-faced cedar. This series potentially is a cross point of two distinct category of perfumery in high contrast; berries or herbal notes clash with mysterious incense; and this is the major factor behind their success.
No. 3 is; to be exact and brief; an unusual twist of super natural accord with prominent synthetic vibe; a savage springy fragrance. Savage springy, yes, two opposite concepts as the scent itself suggests, as well as feedback I obtained: smells strangely like aromatic tea, smells like crushes leaves, smells like greens grown in a lagoon, smells like ivy and tea leaf, et al.

It opens with highly mentholated cassis and black currant; very deliciously, gassy, sparkling, fresh and green with rainy metallic feel that emerges from Cassyrane; a synthetic captive replacement for real cassis note; probably much stronger and stable; as far as I understood. And for that the black currant note is tuned up and accentuated. Through the time, the performance tends more to woody side with fresh young cashmeran wood smell: fluffy, velvety and blond that blended to opening vibes it plays earthy and dusty with strange persistent petroleum shape of smell in background injected throughout the fragrance.
No. 3 is a smart, simple and brilliant intense springy release with enormous longevity and strong sillage on my skin.

Carpe Odor!
