Hiya Posse, I purchased a pattern of Naomi Goodsir Corpus Equus as quickly because it was in inventory at Surrender To Chance, early 2022. It sat there whereas I used to be attempting all the opposite stuff as a result of I used to be so excited a few new Bertrand Duchafour collaboration with Naomi, the final one being of their preliminary three perfumes Or du Serail. SO EXCITING!
I’ve heard that BD is now not freelance and fortunately enslaved to an organization. Don’t quote me, and I could also be flawed, however I feel it’s Puig. Will probably be very attention-grabbing to see the place this takes him and his fashion.

Corpus Equus by Naomi Goodsir
Parfumo provides these featured accords:
Smoked wooden, Leather-based, Birch, Amber, Frankincense, Musk, Patchouli, Rose, Cedar
Darkish, devilishly smoky open. Burning bacon on a campfire with a aspect order of singed hair and toe jam. Sounds disgusting however Corpus Equus is meditative and transportive. Per fumé! Positively tribal and smelling like I think about the gates to hell would odor. Each terrifying and unusually alluring. Like making unhealthy decisions as vengeance towards trauma. In the event you’ve ever learn Terry Pratchett DiskWorld novels then that is the odor of the king below the hill.
So theatrics over, let’s speak Corpus Equus for realz.
Very smoky opening, so birchy. It is sort of a BarBQ or bonfire and as that preliminary WOW modifications there’s some actually animalic notes. I’m shocked that oudh just isn’t famous. I’m getting that medicinal meets unwashed aged human hair and over blow dried hair factor that oudh does so nicely. It’s not blockbuster, beast mode measurement however very aromatic. I wore Corpus Equus to take a nap yesterday and it swirled me to sleep so shortly. My thoughts simply adopted it down into inky, dreamless, darkness.
The center appears to turn into the perfume that I affiliate in my thoughts with Corpus Equus. It’s a surprisingly fantastically blended melange the place all are equal components and none rise to note. Nonetheless smoky and leathery, I do know patchouli is performing some heave lifting however except I’m nostril at hand it melds seamlessly. The perfume stays pretty linear until the subsequent section.
Heading in direction of dry down there’s a particular diminution of scent and it’s like loads of the starring gamers have bowed out. It leaves a leathery amber with wisps of smoke. So good.
Unisex however leaning in direction of conventional trendy masculine. Projection and longevity are glorious.
Have you ever, or would you strive, Corpus Equus?
