What Does 01 Sunda Smell Like

01 Sunda by Odin New York opens with a zesty dash of bergamot and a subtle hint of juniper berry, providing a refreshing citrusy aroma sharpened by a slightly woody undertone. As the initial citrus note fades, the fragrance delves into a more complex territory. There's a heart of heliotrope that delivers an almost almond-like sweetness, blending smoothly with the rose-like scent of palmarosa. The spicy kick of black pepper in the middle notes adds an intriguing, slightly hot edge to the overall aroma.

As 01 Sunda evolves, the base notes reveal themselves, with the warmth and richness of Indian sandalwood taking center stage. The sandalwood’s deep, woody fragrance is paired perfectly with the creamy, slightly sweet scent of tonka beans. These two potent notes dominate the fragrance's base, while a subtle touch of grey musk gives the perfume an earthy depth, grounding the other scents and adding a sensual undertone. The resulting fragrance is a well-rounded symphony of scents, with citrus, spice, sweet florals, and warm, earthy woods all playing their parts in perfect harmony.

Review of 01 Sunda

Odin New York’s 01 Sunda is a fragrance that explores a dynamic interplay of contrasts. It is a unisex perfume, but with a near equal appeal to both women and men, it pays no heed to gender norms. Its prominent woody and spicy notes make it a standout choice for those who enjoy a scent that is earthy yet lively.

Sunda's overall aroma is a blend of warmth and freshness, with the autumnal feel of fallen leaves and the crispness of a spring morning. The distinct note of bergamot, combined with the spiciness of juniper berry, creates an initial impression that is invigorating and welcoming. The heart notes of palmarosa and the subtly floral heliotrope provide a sweet and comforting depth to the fragrance, complementing the spicy kick.

However, its longevity falls a bit short, making it a perfume that may need to be reapplied throughout the day. Similarly, the sillage, or the scent trail it leaves behind, is rather modest. This might disappoint those who prefer their fragrance to make a bold statement in their wake.

Despite these minor drawbacks, 01 Sunda is a reliable choice for everyday wear. It won’t overpower in the office but also has enough character to make an impression during leisurely outings. While it may not be the first choice for a winter perfume or a night out, it can be a go-to option for most other times, making it a versatile addition to anyone's fragrance collection.

In the end, Odin New York’s 01 Sunda is an understated, yet distinct fragrance choice. It captures the essence of nature's most intriguing elements in a bottle.
