Reviews of L'Artisan Dzongkha
From Basenotes - "Dzongkha starts off with a spiced floral accord, subtly fruit; cardamom is dialed back. The composition smoothly evolves into its mid phases which is iris with a hint of tea (note that cardamom is still there), and then the base is mostly iris and incense with hints of a leathery accord with a touch of cypriol. The star is definitely the iris and incense, conjuring up a colour of a dark greyish pink, haunting and alluring in equal parts. Dzongkha is perhaps what a spiced, darkened, slightly butch version of Iris de Nuit would smell like. I think what really works here is the fact that Dzongkha is not aggressive, in-your-face, but elegant and spaced out."
From Makeup Alley - "Oh this is another love/hate one. I LOVE. It is so green on me, I get iris, incense, tea, and for some strange reason cocoanut. It is very unusual and would be edible on a man. Very evocative and I can think of nothing else like it except Timbuktu. Did I mention the smokey vetiver? no? well that too - fabulous."
