Ex Idolo Thirty Three Eau de Parfum would possibly catch one unaware with its barely rubbery be aware within the opening, together with pepper and candied orange, however the rubbery be aware was diminished and left as extra of an earthy aspect after 15 to half-hour. From there, it was a heavy rose scent with a greener, crisper rose–leafy and simply in bloom throughout the early daybreak–slightly than a really candy or jam-like rose. It wasn’t till the drydown that the rose sweetened, after which it was joined by blurred, woody notes.

What does Thirty Three Scent Like?
It opened up with a burst of peppered orange, which softened and sweetened, and have become chewier and extra candied, but nonetheless with a peppery chunk to it. Then, there was a rubbery undertone that gave it an earthiness, although it nonetheless learn extra rubber than earthy, and that’s once I realized that “caoutchouc” is is rubber. The mix of pepper and rubber was fascinating, and whereas the concept of a rubber be aware may not sound interesting on its face, it really was fascinating and never off-putting (to me, clearly, which shocked me).
The white tea lightened what may have been a darker, extra intense rubber be aware, whereas delicate, rosy florals sat on prime, whereas the mandarin was a reminiscence after quarter-hour of growth on my pores and skin. The roses come by with extra of an earthy, loamy backdrop–like fresh-cut roses set on the soil for selecting up later–when smelled additional away. It turned greener after an hour with the roses nonetheless in a full bloom with a really muted rubbery undertone that was nearly undetectable from above a couple of inches on my pores and skin.
For almost all of the wear and tear, Thirty Three was an fragrant, inexperienced rose with a touch of oud (nevertheless it was fairly delicate on me all through) and a cooler, crisper really feel that was by no means heavy. The drydown, after eight hours, was barely sweeter with a jammier rose and a extra withdrawn sense of greenery, however there was additionally extra of a branchy, woodsy be aware that got here by that appeared to easy out the rose and inexperienced notes.
It lasted for 10 hours till it was a skin-scent and about 16 hours earlier than it was fairly troublesome to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection had been average with the sillage dropping sooner than the projection throughout the first hour of wear and tear.
For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as I discovered scent didn’t maintain properly right here in any other case.
I bought my pattern in January 2022; fragrances are recognized to be reformulated over their lifetime, so be conscious of when a assessment was made, e.g. a assessment from 2010 could not mirror what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.
Thirty Three is offered for $125/30ml.
If potential, I extremely advocate attempting a perfume earlier than buying a full bottle as a result of perfume can put on in another way simply due to pores and skin chemistry. Pores and skin chemistry can impact not simply the longevity of a perfume but in addition what notes are outstanding or hidden.
