Odin 03 Century by Odin
What I noticed most about my wearings of Odin 03 Century was how bright this substantial fragrance opens on my skin. It's not a shimmery accord, but dare I say a woody-metallic? The metallic aspect is short lived and intriguing yet never fully dissipates. It lingers on as an accent for the life of the scent.
The pairing of Mint and Myrrh with an undercurrent of Musk is interesting indeed. Century is a mish mash of these ingredients that disfigures the identity of each, yet not enough to render them indistinguishable. I'd like to think they are tuned rather efficiently because the end result is very nice and full bodied.
Century never evolves into too much earth or not enough sensuality. Wood is assuredly represented here and is contrasted with spices, earth tones and just enough smokiness to keep you sniffing.
I cannot help to find Century masculine to the point where it should be categorized as such. The Myrrh and Musk keep this from being completely macho and these two may be the only reasons certain women would opt to wear this. This is only my opinion however and I have been known to be completely off base at times. I suppose the only real way to find out is if you sample it.
Sillage is good and longevity is approximately 7 hours plus on me. Thumbs up from Aromi for Century by Odin with a strong recommendation to sample before purchase due to its categorization.
