Neela Vermeire Creations Mohur is a difficult one for me to explain in words, it’s more of an experience sort of fragrance. I feel it fills a void that the fragrance world had before. It’s very complex (you should be able to get that from the note list) and intellectual; however, it’s gorgeous and effortless to wear. With many intellectual fragrances, I have to be in the mood for them. I’m always in the mood for Mohur.
Mohur opens with almond paste, rose and a hint of coolness from Indian spices and oud. It’s absolutely delicious and my nose is stuck to my wrist. There’s a genius addition of freshly grated carrots that add a cool, sweet, rooty earthiness. It wears a spiced cherry- blanched almond with a cuddly ambrette musk. The rose in this has fruity aspects of black currant. The rose is jammy, delicious…I want to eat it. Under all of this I pick up a subtle, soft leather with a blend of milky almond, rich woods and amber. I don’t find the base too powdery. It’s just right.
Notes listed include cardamom, coriander, ambrette, carrot, black pepper, elemi, Turkish rose oil, jasmine, orris, hawthorn, almond milk, leather, sandalwood, amber, patchouli, oudh, benzoin, tonka bean and vanilla. PERFUMER – Bertrand Duchaufour
Give Mohur a try if you are looking for a complex rose. Or if you like perfumes like Guerlain Nahema, Neela Vermiere Creations Trayee, L’Artisan Parfumeur Drôle de Rose, and Etat Libre d’Orange Nombril Immense. Really I haven’t tried anything else like it.
The 1.9 oz bottle retails for $250 at Luckyscent or if you are an international buyer, I suggest Neela Vermeire Creations.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Almond cherry roses with leather. This could easily be one of my favorite “roses” ever. Well, at least in my top 5.
