BPAL Madness!

Recommended Posts

Bourbon vanilla and suede leather, tonka and patchouli, pale amber and blackened tea leaf, coconut husk and cashmere.

 

I have a decant of this, and I really need to hunt down a bottle. When I wear it, it puts me in mind of the soft kid gloves of a not-so-innocent young maiden, delicately scented with her skin and perfume. Light and lovely.

Hoiru is really lovely, but it's rather faint on me from the get-go, as if the cashmere has laid a woolly blanket over all the notes and is muting them. I get no tea and no patchouli, just mellow leather, coconut and bourbon vanilla. It actually lasts a long time -- I put some on last night before bed and a trace was still hanging on in the morning -- but with volume tuned way down. I wish my skin let this one shine a little more.

I bought a partial bottle, but never reviewed it. 2+ years later, Hoiru is a suede scent for the ages :lovestruck:.

 

On me, Hoiru is suede leather & mysterious wood.  Somehow, all the notes  (bourbon vanilla, tonka, patchouli, pale amber, blackened tea leaf, coconut husk & cashmere,) combine to produce a scent that seems like the most smooth & expensive Mysore sandalwood, plus oudh.

 

A keeper, for sure!
