Luxor Creation Number Three, released January 2019. Gratitude is an amber-inspired blend with a refreshing and unusual burst of juicy fruit in its opening. It pays homage to the easygoing optimism that sets in during a stroll in the park on a crisp, fresh morning. This is a scent that defines "comfort". Tonka bean and sandalwood are tempered with musk to enhance the bright fruit of the opening and prolong the aromatic trail put forth by the lavender, creating a sumptuous and warming experience.
This has a striking roundedness about it! It's fruity, boosted by lavender, yet doesn't step into the sweet zone; I don't find it very heavy, which is good, but the tonkabean and sandalwood along with the musk adds depth and a bit of masculinity. Overall feels very smooth, secure, and sophisticated--a very mature creation from this relatively new house.
