MFH says

Just like Parfums De Marly’s Kalan, this lasts really well on the skin.

Again, I’m not a fan of the bottle but obviously it’s what’s inside that counts!

It’s a powerful fragrance, with a big hit of pepper at the opening, but it quickly settles into its more sweet and musky tones. I’m not massively into sweet fragrances, but the vetiver and frankincense add a masculine depth to it.

Parfums De Marly Herod Key Notes

What They Say
