Description

L'Artisan Dzing! was released in 1999, created by legendary Olivia Giacobetti. Every time I think of Ms. Giacobetti - usually making wispy, gorgeous ephemeral perfumes, making this circus fragrance, I laugh. It really is genius - peanuts, barnyard, cotton candy, leather.  

Notes of leather, ginger, tonka, musk, white woods, caramel, saffron, toffee, candy apple and cotton candy. 

Read that notes list again. Sounds awwwwwful, right?  Nope. In the hands of Ms. Giacobetti, it is amazing!  Okay, not everyone will agree with me, but you won't not feel something when you smell it.  You will love it or you will hate it, like Bvlgari Black and Dior Fahrenheit - it will make you decide what you think of it. I like scents like that. No fragrant fence sitting!

Reviews of L'Artisan Dzing!

From Bois de Jasmin - "If anyone could make an animalic fragrance radiant and dream-like, it would be Olivia Giacobetti. Originally called Désir de Cirque, Circus Desire, when it debuted in 1999, Dzing ! is a fragrance inspired by the circus ring, the smell of the talcum, animal fur and candy apples. As if by a crack of a whip, tarry and balsamic notes spring forth, creating a leather accord against which rose suddenly appears. The effect is simply bizarre, but memorable, setting a perfect stage for a more tranquil undulation of sweet and resinous notes that combine into multifaceted chords, one moment of hammy lapsang souchong and cinnamon, next vanillic sweetness of benzoin and balmy complexity of musks."

From Kafkaesque - (she really hates it!) - "It’s as if the Mad Scientist infected the body of P.T. Barnum with a plan for world domination through olfactory torture. As the moments pass, the cheap Chinese, mass-produced, pink plastic note rises in prominence, as does the vanilla and the overall shrill cacophony of fakeness. This may be absolutely one of the worst things I’ve smelled in a while."

From EauMG - "L’Artisan Parfumeur Dzing! opens as printer paper, fax machines and tonka beans. It’s like Bvlgari Black and CdG EDP – industrial vanilla. It’s an office with a cotton candy machine. These artificial notes meld into something more “natural” smelling. The heart is tons of sweet coumarin with evergreens. Dzing! starts to feel antique, not like a vintage perfume but reminds me of an antique shop or an old library. Traces of worn leather, dry pine and tons of tonka with some mustiness. It dries down to a sweet, warm musk with vanilla tobacco. And tonka. I swear all I get is coumarin throughout the wear of this."

From Perfume Posse - "Much of my misspent youth played out at the carnival, walking down the midway in those lazy days of summer with the short shorts, flirting with the cute boys, holding hands, girly gossip and scary carnival rides — the ones we got sometimes used masking tape to hold the Octopus together, so the scary part was just hoping your Octopus arm did not go spinning off into the wheatfield — with the smells of the animals there for 4-H livestock judging and the rodeo wafting around, pink cotton candy tendrils swirling lazily.  Dzing! has animalic notes, the warm fuzzy ones, the sweat, like the smell you get when you nuzzle a horse’s neck after a ride.  This is Rat Money Smell at its best — innocent and without guile."

    Order a much sought after perfume and it's very chancy as to what you'll get, your seems to imply. However, my order is 100% accurate!! Great, keep it up!!

    Pure Circus Fun!

    Out of all of the fragrance samples that I purchased, this was one of the most anticipated. It is strange, but it's a GOOD strange. It reminds me of a mood ring that I had as a kid. You might smell hay, the next time toffee, maybe a hint of leather... It's just a fun fragrance. Love it!

    Love this

    I real like this interesting, unique fragrance. in some ways it kinda reminds me of the original mens Bvlgari scent. When wearing it, over time, I was told I smelt great by a few people and told it smelt like cheap department store cologne by many. Either way, this is a fragrance i really like and do not wear it hoping for compliments.

    Interesting

    Interesting, but nobody mentioned the sweaty musk drydown that is very difficult for people who do not like musk to enjoy.

    Many Acts

    I love this fragrance. It has different lives to me. Sometimes it is the softest, most luxurious leather interrupted by lovely sweet wafts of saffron. Sometimes it is a harsher popcorn and motorcycle jacket in a floral scented night air. At times it is just sweet floral. It seems to disappear quickly, as do all L’artisan perfumes, but is doesn’t really. You just can’t smell it yourself. It doesn’t take over the room.
