Myrrhiad by Huitieme Art
The nose for Myrrhiad is Pierre Guillaume. I decided to buy a sample recently while perusing ThePerfumeShoppe. I believe all the releases from Huitieme Art Parfums hit the market in 2010 and his new creations under Phaedon have been released in 2011.
Pierre has been busy. He has an impressive resume and since I also like myrrh, I was compelled to give this a whirl. I've worn it twice now and it felt denser the first wearing, but Myrrhiad is still a substantial fragrance with some presence. The 2nd wearing gave me the impression it was a little more spatial than the first time and has room to breathe.
The implementation of this particular myrrh note is very lucid. There's nothing murky about Myrrhiad and smells as uncomplicated as it really is. I happen to like everything about licorice and any note that gives off a similar aroma. This happens to be a nice version and I love how it interacts with the Black Tea. I've been lucky lately in reviewing a few fragrances that had a really worthwhile tea note in the accords. I can add Myrrhiad to the list. These 3 notes smell like they were made for each other.
This is a nice fragrance. It's simple, direct and smells very good. The sillage is above average and longevity is commendable. This will last most of the workday on your skin and the same can be said for evening wear. Either gender can pull this off and gets a thumbs up from yours truly.
