An invigorating, spicy opening gives way to a smooth, creamy wood fragrance that envelops the skin like soft, velvet suede.

Super cool and fast

Favorite out of the entire collection

But it is not for everyone. Or most. I am a huge fan of cuminic notes. Alexander McQueen's Kingdom was the first (marketed towards) woman's fragrance I bought because I loved the sweaty, masculine pungency opening of it before unfolding into the florals. My other,decidedly kore wearable and full stop daily cologne is CdG 2 Man. The lift of of the cumin strengthens the aldehyde opening and sustains itself in the background of the entire composition.

MATCH, however, reminds me of the Monday afternoons after um, every notorious Sunday afternoon/evening out in Berlin at one of those famous clubs, still buzzing from the Funktion One sound system on the dance floor. I haven't lived in Berlin for over 3 years now, but upon first spray of this, the overwhelming sense of nostalgia and longing for those days of absolute freedom rushed into me.

The sharpness of black pepper opening coinciding with the sexy cumin is like that very moment of a sweaty dancer you've been eyeing the entire night walks by and accidentally brushes against you, the sillage of their sweat paired with their unpretentious friendliness, drying down to an enjoyment of informal sensuality.

Again, not a scent for everyone because of the cuminic focus, but buying myself a full bottle as soon as this review is posted!

Very good unisex scent

I like this fragrance very much. It's a comfortable scent that would wear well any time, anywhere. It reads as more citrus, ginger, and woods on my skin. The cumin is very much in the background on my skin, so don't be afraid of that note. On first wearing, the fragrance goes to a skin scent fairly quickly, so more sprays will be needed on future wearings. I'm thinking about a full bottle.
