is a crisp, cool, and earthy scent that was lightened by mint over patchouli, which was initially on the damper, earthier facet after which gave method to a extra unsweetened, cocoa-like powder scent afterward. The drydown added some muskiness and tamped down the preliminary mintiness, which meant it was primarily patchouli. I discovered it to be airier and cooler, barely drier, total in comparison with Profumum’s Patchouly.

What does Thundra Odor Like?
It opened with a lightweight, ethereal mint and lemon, virtually soap-like as a result of it has recent and “clear” facets to it. There was a dryness that emerged after a couple of minutes that was accompanied by woodiness. The freshness of the mint added a crisp, cool, and drier really feel to the woodiness; it made it appear extra prefer it was open air with a lightweight, however chilly, breeze.
The patchouli was cool, loamy, and earthy within the first 45 minutes, after which it was just like the earth had dried out a bit, which gave it a dustier, drier facet. This finally transitioned right into a barely cocoa-powder aroma within the later hours.
The mint began to be overtaken by the musk after two hours of wear and tear, which led to the perfume changing into much less crisp and funky, barely drier and like barely candy, drier woods with underlying muskiness. I’d categorize the drydown as closely patchouli with musk and little mint.
It lasted for seven hours till it was a skin-scent and about 10 hours earlier than it was fairly tough to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been reasonable with the sillage dropping sooner than the projection inside the first two hours 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 identified to be reformulated over their lifetime, so be aware of when a evaluate was made, e.g. a evaluate from 2010 could not mirror what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.
Thundra is obtainable for $275/100ml, although you might be able to discover a $93/18ml journey bottle at sure non-US retailers.
If potential, I extremely advocate making an attempt 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 additionally what notes are distinguished or hidden.
We advocate the next retailers for buying decanted samples (usually 0.7ml to 2ml in dimension). This can be a fuller record, so particular person availability could rely upon stock.
