Mechant Loup by L'Artisan Parfumeur

Hazelnut, Honey, Sandalwood, Myrrh, Cedar, Licorice.

The "Angry Wolf" opens with a pretty interesting licorice note on my skin. It only takes about 2 minutes before evolving beyond that, but since I like licorice, I admit to enjoying it quite a bit. The note has that expected transparency quite common in L'Artisan creations. There was a time I eschewed  sheer fragrances, but I suppose my tastes have transitioned like accord movements.

What hasn't changed is my amazement pertaining to naming any particular scent. I'm clueless what this perfume has to do with an angry wolf since this is anything but feral, angry or lonesome.

That aside, Mechant Loup is rather tame and refined to my nose. Honey can sometimes change the direction of a scent, but in Mechant Loup, I can't say it's a game changer. I realize more of a combination of Licorice, Myrrh and sweet resin than anything animalic. This never takes that path in my wearings, although I wonder if others perceive a more distinct honey experience. It simply never blooms on me.

What does come alive is balsamic in nature. I like the resin as it exudes subtle spice and just enough sweet to compliment the woods and still-going licorice note.

Another attribute of Mechant Loup is that it's understated, but never feeble. It has a quiet strength that's quite admirable. Sillage is average at best, with longevity approximately 4 to 5 hours on my skin. Thumbs up from Aromi for L'Artisan Parfumeur's Mechant Loup. As always, a sample wear is highly recommended.
