Key Notes of I Don't Know What

What Does I Don't Know What Smell Like

I Don't Know What by D.S. & Durga unfolds with a noticeable zest of bergamot. Its citrusy aroma carries a slight bitterness, providing an intriguing start to the perfume journey. This gradually transitions into the central essence of the fragrance, where the scent becomes notably synthetic, imbued with a dominant essence of vetiveryl acetate. It imparts a dry, woody aroma with a subtle, root-like undertone that speaks of earthy freshness. The complementary scent of ISO-E-Super adds an aromatic touch, hinting at cedar and leaning towards the spicier side of perfume scents.

As the fragrance settles, the base notes unfold, bringing to the fore a distinctive, green aroma. The ambrox is dominant, lending a warm, amber-like scent that is simultaneously creamy and musky. The lesser presence of civettone adds an exotic animalistic nuance, and Firsantol® completes the base with a soft, resinous undertone. This amalgamation results in a final accord that is decidedly woody, fresh, spicy, and green. To encapsulate, I Don't Know What is a compelling blend of contrasting elements: the sharpness of citrus, the earthy freshness of vetiver, the woody spiciness of ISO-E-Super, and the warm, creamy muskiness of ambrox, all underlined by the exotic hint of civettone and the soft resin of Firsantol®.

Review of I Don't Know What

I Don't Know What by D.S. & Durga is a perfume that undeniably stands out from the crowd. This is a perfume that neither sways too feminine nor too masculine, making it a great choice for those seeking something that defies the traditional gender-binary scents.

Its charm lies in the fact that it leans towards a synthetic and woody profile. With a notable presence of Bergamot in the top notes, it sets the stage for a fresh and zesty introduction. The scent then evolves, revealing a slightly spicy and green heart, maintaining an interesting balance without overpowering the wearer. The creamy undertones provide a soft, comforting finish that will pleasantly surprise you.

Despite its eccentricities, I Don't Know What is surprisingly adaptable, proving to be a good fit for different seasons, though it shines brightest during the spring. Its versatility extends to various occasions as well, from leisurely outings to business meetings, making it a reliable companion for your daily activities.

While the perfume’s longevity is commendable, the sillage isn't as prominent. This makes it a great choice for those who prefer a more personal, intimate scent rather than one that announces their arrival from a distance. This might also be the reason why it's more appealing to a slightly older demographic, who often seek fragrances that aren't too loud.

The value-for-money aspect of this perfume might be a bit of a letdown for some. For the price point, one might expect something more dramatic or intense. Nevertheless, if you're someone who appreciates unconventional scents and prefers subtlety over spectacle, I Don't Know What might just be what you're looking for.
