This 1993 counterpart to Twenty Four Morning is as substantial as the accords would lead you to believe. I assure you that this particular masculine, while extremely rich and dense, is not for everyone. That goes double for the fragrant faint-of-heart. Only those who gravitate toward edgy and substantial need apply here. The triple threat of Cumin, Cinnamon and Civet is alive, well and very interactive in Twenty Four Evening.

Twenty Four Evening opens with a blast of citric spice. Bergamot, Lavender and Lemon intermingled with cumin and pepper is nothing to sneeze at. It's not so much overpowering as it is full bodied. I love the gravity and edginess of this accord. The cumin note is fascinating in this fragrance and I have yet to find one implemented in a more superior fashion. Cumin is a tough sell, yet it works wonders here. I have to reiterate that this masculine possesses all the aspects of a love-it or hate-it scent.

Once the top settles down after 5 minutes, a densely blurred floral array appears and is accented with even more spice. The volume has always been perfect on my skin and this facet is commendable for such a heady brew. No one note here takes precedence and the heart acts as a crew completing a task. As challenging as this is, I imagine this would smell extremely sensual and alluring on a very confident woman as well. It calls to mind clean but sweaty sex after a night on the town. Twenty Four Evening amps up on me from the onset of exertion and becomes slightly feral.

Once the opening and heart have combined and played their part, the base and drydown aren't far removed from what you've already experienced. It's smoother with less presence, yet still substantial enough from the carry-over of spices and heart notes. Civet stands above its peers in the base and the extended drydown affords bits of resin, leathery wood and musk.

Sillage is perfect and longevity is approximately 6 hours plus on me. Thumbs up from Aromi for MCM's very edgy and sexual Twenty Four Evening.
