Dzongkha is named for the incense burned in the Buddhist temples (the Dzongks) in the Eastern Himalayas. Created by Bertrand Duchaufour the nose of Timbuktu. Another dry incense that is very unappealing upon first spray. I dared not get too close to my hubby with his allergies as he was already reacting from a tiny bit on my hand from the vial. It was headache inducing even to me.
For reference I did not care for Timbuktu. The dryness of this one, the lack of sweetness, the lost floral notes, leaves one wondering why you want to smell like this. The opening is very off putting and though it does settle down, I think there comes a point where one has so many lovely fragrances that open beautifully, why suffer through a nasty opening waiting to reveal a wearable drydown? A drydown of unfathomable beauty maybe, but an average drydown? Life's too short.
One commenter on Lucky Scent's page compared the incense note to that of SMN Citta di Kyoto but said that it was "devoid of any floral complexity that would have made it a nice, if completely unoriginal, offering." I really couldn't agree more. If you are looking for a nice type of incense try the SMN Citta di Kyoto. You can read my review of that lovely fragrance by clicking on the name above.
I have no doubt that some of you will love this. If you loved Timbuktu, Padparadscha & L'Air du Desert Marocain or Guerlain Bois D' Armenie, this one could be for you.
