Dzongkha by L'Artisan Parfumeur
I have tried to like this house, but eclectisism for the sake of itself is simply unacceptable to me. Dzongkha is an amalgamation of aged fruit and dusty floral set atop a slightly spicy tea note. Is this supposed to be innovative? I think not....especially at these prices.
Dzongkha is not horrid, but it isn't good either. It's simply a strange brew that falls short of the mark. Very short.
I would love to see L'Artisan cease and desist trying to be so different ( just for a moment at least) and create something incendiary along the lines of a classic tried and true power scent using the quality ingredients that they have at their disposal. Tried and true ( with a twist) would not be such a bad thing...........
