Tango is a floriental that principally consists of a spicy, balsamic amber accord contrasted with a ripe smelling jasmine sambac. The composition is very much in the modern ‘niche’ style, being dominated by a sweet and heavy-handed resin complex that shows facets of honey, raisins and liquorice. Common to jasmine and amber accords is, of course, a certain woodsiness and these threads are tied together in the base with a pale cedar and sandalwood elaboration. The whole thing is then fixed with a big composite of musks that provides a powdery finish.
