Brief Impression (click on read more to see the full review): linear but complex hot woody rose fragrance

If you just judge by the package you may miss with Bollywood or Bust a really good centered rose composition. This one try construct  an oriental inspired rose fragrance which is fun and sexy at the same time. While not reinventing the wheel Smell Bent try to explore it at the best and the result is a great complex and balanced soliflore of roses.

A centered rose composition can be constructed with different aspects; it may be green, slightly sour, musky and velty, a little dirty, ultraloaded on spices, and so on. Bollywood or Bust achieves a complexity by working with a red rose idea which is able to deliver a balanced rose aroma that is spicy and hot but also slightly musky and sour at the right point to not stole the main focus, which is the spiciness hot aura that the roses evoke. Those are flamming roses, with an incredible light muskyness aura that gets more intenses ar the skin get warmer and makes the scent evaporates more. At the opening you have a mix of spices that evokes sometimes safron, sometimes pepper and sometimes cinnamon, but they are worked to blend with the roses and give all the focus to them. The sandalwood is equally worked so the transition to its dominance is not noticed, with the roses extended the best its possible to make their appearance at their basenote.

Bollywood or Bust is what a fragrance should be if what really mattered was the scent, and not the package or the exclusive aura. While people keep giving more emphasis to those items they will end negleting scents like this, lovely compositions that try to do the best that they can with their notes, theme. Bollywood is pleasant, longlasting and is able to offer a spicy complex rose for hours - a rose that doesn't cheapen up at any moment on skin.
