Rich and proud and glinting with everything precious your neighbors had until you rode up and took it away from them. A heady blend of plunder notes and the pleasure of inflicting your will on the populace! Golden amber, sandalwood, patchouli and earth churned by the hooves of your richly-caparisoned steed. Isn't 'caparisoned' a great word?

The last one! 10/10
I will have to use this one sparingly, or that barbarian horde will come rampaging out of the bottle and sack everything. All of the woody notes are fighting it out amongst themselves, like Genghis Khan's sons arguing over who gets to take over after his demise, and they are all well matched. This one gets saved for that RPG where you are an Evil Warlord.

The only reason this doesn't get five stars is because I like "The Chieftains Wife" much better. This however is everything it promised to be, a little more sandalwood and earth than patchouli, but still nicely balanced between all three.

Smells lovely in the bottle, all the elements balanced and calling to my inner Hun. On my skin, however, it reverts entirely to sandalwood. Well, not entirely. Something underneath, fortunately something small and close to the skin, turned sour. My skin chemistry apparently reacts poorly with sandalwood. Ahh, well, it was worth a try, at least.

I am a Barbarian. Might as well say that up front. 'Cause I LOOOOOVES me some Patchouli!!! Take no prisoners (well, maybe a few...), love me, love my perfume, etc. etc. etc....! So anyway, I get a buttload of the Patch from this, and that is as it should be. I do get the other notes, but they are supporting cast for my beloved Patch. With my particular skin, this scent goes on very strong, like a Pillaging Hoard, and then backs off a bit and *pretends* to be mellow. Heh. It's not as long-lasting as I thought it might be, but it does last a good while in its mellow state. If I need to Pillage more, I simply reapply. LOVE!

loved this one right out of the bottle, but alas, it didn't work well with my skin chemistry, and the patchouli overwhelmed everything else. my best friend gave it a try, though, and it was amazing on him! It started off with just the right amount of sandalwood, and the earthy notes came out in the dry-down. He wore it when we went to the renaissance faire (since it seemed appropriate), and got quite a few compliments on it.

Or, more simply... YUM!!! I was wondering where the earth came in to the equation, but it is there, and yes, it is simply splendid! Dunno how well it wears yet... I just opened the envelope and dabbed a bit into my elbow .. but my first impression is " a little dab'll do ya ". I got the amber first; now the other bits are starting to kick in.
I have to say, I bought this because it contained at least three of my favorite scents in the Universe, and It seemed to me that there was no way the combination wouldn't be wonderful -- I was correct! It might take me a while to use this up, but I'll assuredly be getting more!

The amber and patchouli are definitely taking the foreground here, though it comes off as a little heady on first whiff. As time stands and it evaporates, I'm getting more sandalwood and Mongolian spice / opium den. Vas Dothrak? Perhaps.
A solid unisex fragrance, with that tang of gold and "Wait, what's that smell?" Definitely draws attention.

As a fan of Game of Thrones, I ordered this because I figured it would smell like what I imagine a Dothraki would. I was not disappointed. It's rich, heady, and dark, and my personal favorite scent on the site. A+
