The Scent | Odin New York 08 Seylon

The Scent | Odin New York 08 Seylon

We recently had the opportunity to review one of Odin New York’s latest fragrances — No 08 Seylon. The scent’s harvested from Sri Lanka with an authentic interpretation of pure vetiver. Perfumer Phillipe Romano has done an exceptional job with his latest creation, laying the watery crispness of fresh yuzu follwed by the tartness of bitter orange and bergamot. The middle notes of spicy nutmeg and the absinth-aroma of wormwood blent with a rich base of warm benzoin, damp oakmoss and the soft earthiness of calming vetiver.

No 08 Seylon is a very inviting scent in my option. It’s not overbearing and though it lasts throughout the day, the citrus/vetiver blent works effortlessly and gives it some versatility.
