Lentisque Review

A woody-green composition, Lentisque starts off with the crisp, verdant tones of galbanum allied with some weedy, balsamic notes courtesy of mastic oil. To the perfume’s (and perfumer’s) credit, it transitions smoothly to a lightly smoky vetiver fragrance that’s underscored by some dessicated, pale, cedary woods. Overall however, there’s little here to excite.
