NEW: Liam Sardea of Olfactics has reviewed Quasi una absurdia, Io, and 33. An excerpt on QUA:

"Consider this gem. In the first instance, [Quasi una absurdia] could be construed as a well-executed homage-qua-synthesis of two greats: the plush blue quiet of Guerlain’s L’Heure Bleue, and the rich intensity of Bal a Versailles. It’s as if Bal came along and told L’Heure Bleue to put its chin up, for QUA never drags along with quite a melancholic weight, nor does it lose its classical attitude. But it would be unfair to describe QUA as strictly an homage, as this feature moves along quite quickly. Rather, QUA is a fragrance made of a classical syrup, where notes of rose, jasmine, orange blossom, and civet speak a whole history of classical perfumery, enlivened with an equally classic amalgam of ylang ylang, clove, benzoin, and tonka bean."

Victoria Jent of EauMG also reviews the same three perfumes and shares similar delight with QUA:

"Quasi una absurdia smells like funeral lilies, Certs mints and Murphy oil soap. My mind immediately went to a funeral parlor as morbid as it sounds. As it wears, it’s a really pollen-heavy floral. With the notes, you’d expect a white floral, but this is a “yellow floral”. It’s lilies and carnation. Vermillion-hued pollen scattered on the floor. As the fragrance dries down, it’s like night-blooming jasmine making its way through an open window. These florals eventually fade into musk and church incense. It’s gorgeous." (September 21, 2018)
