L'Artisan Parfumeur's Dzing is intensely sweet at first, but that peels away to reveal something dirtier and animalic. The dry-down on this fragrance verges on being offensive, but is kept from going south by some comforting and familiar accords. Coming to the rescue are notes of caramel, vanilla and hay that gently disguise the leathery musk that really sticks with you long after the initial candy/macaroon top notes wear off. This performs like an EDP. This fragrance is certainly for those that are a little more daring, and definitely not a blind buy. I would say this is a more mature fragrance that leans towards the feminine side, although a certain gentleman can also pull it off. In short, this is a musky-gourmand that demands a second or even a third try before a verdict can be reached.
