L’air du désert marocain (Tauer) incense
This is perfectly weightless and as clear as the desert air. There’s not a drop of water in it. Every bit is crackling dry. If it were incense, it would not give off smoke, just pure aroma. Mind its strength. One spritz is enough to keep you humming "Marrakesh Express" all day.

When I read today´s Bouki´s nice minireview I remember another fragrance with outstanding coriander note. Givenchy & Vetiver  (Les Parfums Mythiques).

Quotation: "Many hold Guerlain's Vetiver as the benchmark. It is most plausible however, that Guerlain held Givenchy's as his benchmark."

Etro Ambra - my favourite vanilla-Ambra fragrance.
Great cosy deep, slightly sweet, slightly woody fragrance. Love it.

Vetiver (Guerlain) vintage
This golden vintage juice is far richer and more complex than the anemic green version of Vetiver that now fills the duty free shelves in the airport. The old stuff has a fair dose of moss and musk that give the citrus top notes ample grounding. It’s a balanced fragrance, round and spicy, with notes of coriander, nutmeg, and black pepper.

I bought it from seller which no longer exist. NOTINO bought them and NOTINO has´nt listed this fragrance. If you are interested in, just PM me, because I have one bottle to let go. We can swap it for another fragrance or soap, shaving hardware ...

Claus...I’m a fan of ADP but never had a chance to try this limited edition. What are your thoughts?

Bottle worthy?

Ron, my friend  Smile , is it question for Claus or for me? If for me ... Simple answer is, NO.


Bottle is maybe worthy because of pretty old fashioned bulb atomizer. (you get common spray and this baloon too). Bottle is 200ml/ 6.8oz. About juice inside ... If you are really fan of Assoluta or you are bottle collector, go for it. You can get on Internet nformation that it is only Assoluta in new bottle but it isn´t true. I have both and Villa is more old-fashioned and floral/green/cypress.

If I can give you piece of advice, save money for their NOTE line (I am not writing about mobile phone Biggrin ) . Avoid NOTE II., NOTE I. is so-so, but NOTE III. and NOTE IV. are best scents from ADP. I tried almost full range of ADP (I have ADP shop in shop "at the corner") and NOTE III. and IV. are really breathtaking.

My apologies my friend ... yes the question was for YOU!  I just saw the CHSEIFERT name in the response and was hasty...

That is good news...another LE I don't have to hunt down...but now where to try NOTE III and IV?

thanks as always for your excellent summation and advice.

I have not tried this, looks beautiful, but I avoid this type of atomizer, even though it looks great.
It will almost 100% leak the fragrance very fast. My Guerlain and my Alt Innsbruck had the same atomizer, and they leaked the fragrance like crazy, just from stading up among my other bottles.
I think I have used my Alt Innbruck 100 ml bottle 6-8 times total, yet there is only 50 ml left in the 100 ml bottle now after 4-5 years time.

I can NOT recomment these type of atomizers, even though they sure look pretty.

Bottle design of this ADP is fantastic. Have yet to test it though.
I own 10-12 ADP frags, that's enough for now, unless they release something really spectacular.
