Exuding a combination that is both royal and exotic, this amazing composition: Herod is truly a masterpiece. That echoes on the stunning reputation of the prestigious house that is Parfums de Marly!
The Parfums de Marly fragrance collection, named after the famed French Marly castle, draws inspiration from the legacy of Louis XV and his love of breeding thorough pure blood stallions and creating perfumes. Each bottle reflects this rich heritage with an embossed crest and rich accents. Herod is a smoky, tobacco and vanilla scent named after a famed stallion of the 18th century.
Classification: woody spicy
– Top: cinnamon, pepperwood.
– Middle: osmanthus, tobacco leaves, frankincense and ciste.
– Base: vanilla pods, cedarwood, vetiver, patchouli and cypriol musk.
Herod opens with a mere second of sweet cherry pipe tobacco then quickly moves into a layer of cinnamon and sugar. Then after a few minutes more. the fragrance gets drier and more woody. Still yet, a warmed rum note sits in play, but its not heavy and thick but instead it’s creamier, opulent and contained, it’s a very pleasant surprise!
At around the ten minute mark, the tobacco note begins to come to life embellished by vanilla and the frankincense. It’s nice and mellow one of a kind of pipe cherry tobacco sweet scent… Herod stays in this very controlled stage, elegant and sophisticated, lovely light vanilla sweetened woody tobacco bliss that dries down to an amazing delicious and luscious fragrance that is a must for any lover of luxurious and regal scents!

When you first spray this Regal juice onto the skin, it explodes with a nice boozy note that tickles the nose, the accord attributed to a fabulous rich rum note, then the florals create a spark that showers down over you like an olfactory fireworks!
The woods are creamy and develop fairly soon, and they feel even creamier because of the civet which smells natural and thick comes to play. The agarwood ”Oud” is rich and pervasive; just gorgeous and natural.
This is where the fragrance starts to feel very cozy and cashmere-like, it grows a thick coat of fur, very majestic and warm. The orris is very earthy, dark and opulent- just the way it should be. The “dry wood” accord is not overly dry, in fact, the moist presence of the civet helps the woods to not disperse too quickly.
Over time, the civet and Oud are all that’s left (with a tiny touch of rose), and it really starts to meld into the skin in the most sensuous and seductive way.
The sillage of Opus V is not too strong- it wears fairly close to the skin, but the longevity is unbelievably good (12-24 hours depending on how much you spray)!
This is what I would consider to be a ‘personal perfume’. Definitely signature scent worthy!
Jubilation XXV by Amouage
Jubilation XXV is an example of a true Masterpiece of the Niche fragrance industry!
Jubilation XXV has this remarkable fruitiness right out of the bottle. It’s wonderfully interesting as it forms a slightly sour-bitter accord with the coriander, cinnamon, clove, and a perfectly zesty orange citrus…
This initial accord is soon joined by amazing Amouage signature frankincense! The magical resin immediately gives the fruit accord some weight, pulling it back from sweetness and focusing on the spices… These are all very distinct notes, but they are singing in a five-part harmony voiced by angels! Into the heart with rose and more resin from guaiac-wood, honey, orchid, everything in balance with the frankincense front and center but never stealing the show.
As Jubilation XXV develops, more resinous, more opulent notes are added to the mix – moss, cedarwood , and oud – but they are tamed by musk, sweet myrrh, patchouli, and salty hints of ambergris… The unique maple syrupy/curry accord of immortelle flower reveals a hint of leather in the deep and gorgeous dry-down.
Jubilation XXV is a vibrant symphony of rich Regal notes and complex accords, it is divinely sumptuous, luscious and harmonious to perfection! It is also a bright, colorful, and happy incense fragrance, with a unique personality – it comes and goes, it plays hide and seek, but at all times it is well-behaved and never intrusive… The incense seems to come alive on your skin and reads your moods, receding into the background when not needed, stepping forward when required to soothe your soul. Jubilation XXV is the quintessential incense fragrance, bar-none. This one is a must have for fragrance lovers, a true MASTERPIECE!
