The Buffalo Man
Posted 18 May 2017 - 03:02 PM
In the bottle, there’s a heavy, dark brown labdanum, imbued with a Faunalia sort of musk and a little smoke. It smells moody, weighty, and thick.
On my skin, this is so heavy brown animal. The liquid itself is dark brown. It smells musky, woody, smoky, resinous, and brown. This is the herd animal stamping on the plain, or the rugged man wanting sexy times by the campfire.
The woodsmoke smells to me like that from Baby’s First Krampuslauf, which is what I hoped for. I liked that note. Those who enjoyed that, or blends like Faunalia and Coyote, might want to try the buffalo, too.

Dark, smoky labdanum and musk. It's a heavy brown musk, feral and animalistic. Gender neutral into masculine. This smells like warmed animal skin and fur.

Wet: Dark musk, almost spicy labdanum, and smoke. This is actually surprisingly sweet - I was expecting something more bitter. And holy crap, what throw! I just put it on my arm and I can smell it while I type.
Dry: Casablanca's comparison to Faunalia is very apt, that's by far the scent this reminds me of the most. It does sour a bit on the drydown and sharpen up in a way that cancels out much of what I love about the wet stage, but this is still a strong, powerful, uniquely shaggy scent. It's so weird - I feel like this scent should have patch in it, even though it doesn't, perhaps it's the woodsmoke and labdanum sweetness. Despite comparisons to other scents, this is definitely a rare breed of BPAL, and pretty unique. Really interesting.

sweet labdanum, woodsmoke that bounces between campfire and non-offensive almost ciggie-esque and the lovely musk from faunalia, coyote, ivanuschka, etcetc.
very lovely. that musk and labdanum are two of my favorite bpal notes.
this starts out with a nice strong oooomph but (freshly landed, keep in mind) faded away within a few hours. smokey sweetened musk still detectable at the skin, but not much waft.

This by far is my favorite of the AG scents. Sweet woodsmoke, laudunum, and something else. It's just gorgeous from wet to drydown. Must order a bottle soon.

Wet: Pretty much labdanum single note on me right now, which isn't terrible. Sweet and sticky. Smells very warm, but there's a hint of something chemical underneath that I'm not a fan of. Hoping some smoke comes out a bit as it dries.
Dry: I REALLY like this. It's such a sweet, resinous, dark, rich scent. It's comforting and warm. I likely need more at some point (but not urgently, as this feels like a cold months scent).

This scent is gorgeous. Lush warm brown musk, with a touch of something resinous with a hint of smoke. I LOVE IT. It's amazing!

Warm, amber-y labdanum that turns just slightly powdery on me, with thick, animalic musk (like a warmer version of black musk with maybe a hint of civet) and straightup woodsmoke, like standing next to a bonfire. Starts off strong and growly, but dries down to mostly that powdery amber veil on my skin.

This smells almost exactly like an ancient Horned God altar oil my old pagan shop had in the back for the covens sabbats. As I never wore that on my skin, the similarity starts to fade as the oil warms. This is much sweeter and warmer, less smokey and dark. I love the animalistic musk note, and I love civet and I wish this blend was heavier with that note on my skin. I will say that this has good throw, I can smell it as I type, and It is very comforting.
