The strange quark: how strange is it?
(so strange they made a movie out of it! No more Rocky references, promise.)
Turns out it's pretty strange; as a particle, perhaps redundantly, it has strangeness. Strangeness affects the rate of particle decay among other things that are imperfectly understood, especially by us. But we love it so, because it has caused many people before us to wonder what the heck was going on. Our take on it: a strangely wholesome mess of musky-sweet durian meat, patchouli root, rum and kola nut.

Wet, this is super dusty and dry, which I'm assuming is from the kola nut and durian fruit. Definitely getting the strange factor right off the bat. There's just a hint of thick, caramelly sweetness from the fruit and rum. As it dries, the rum and patchouli start showing up to clear up some of the mustiness, and there's a slow transition between the funky dustball wet phase and the eventual (4-ish hours) drydown of sweet, granulated brown sugar with a hint of maple syrup. The overlapping kind of brings to mind brown sugar covered in mould. The first time I tried this scent I had to wash it off, but on the second try I didn't find it as bad. The brown sugar part is nice, but there's a lot of thick mustiness before it gets to that point.
The picture for this scent is perfect -- sweet, brown, and more than a little weird!
