Complex is a walk on the wild side.

The topnotes are an herbal blast - sweat mixed with a plant cocktail of herbs and grasses, like a roll in the hay! I was transported to an herb garden filled with basil and sage, intensely heated by the mid-day sun - pungent, resinous.

The middle notes are animalic - sweaty leather! I was in a stable - the smell of horses, saddles and tack - more hay. Thirty minutes after I first dabbed Complex on my wrists, this fragrance was still strange, and "un-perfumey".

On my skin, there was little sweetness until well into the drydown, but then the true character appeared, and the dry herbal/leather mix was tempered by the faint sweetness of violet and  incense, and soft, powdery musk.

This perfume is not for the feint of heart. It is confident, uncompromising, and.....complex.
