This is my summer scent. Just smelling it puts me in a beachy mood, especially if I pair it with a little salt spray in my hair and my favorite sandals.

When I open the bottle all I smell is coconut, and I love the smell of coconuts! Wet on the skin I get a hint of floral and the hazelnut but it’s still mostly coconut. Once dry the coconut tones down and let the iris, the hazel and the musk. It is lovely! On me on the other hand the scent fades away a bit, sadly.

I am so confused by this scent. At first, all I could smell was cheesy feet (I know, I know!!!) but that may just be how straightforward chocolate morphs on me. I want to give the Lab’s chocolate notes another shot (I do love a few that have it in the background), but I don’t think this is my chocolate blend.

I get a sweet, tropical scent when I first put it on that dries to a nice powdery coconut. It smells like coconut sunblock is supposed to smell like. I keep getting a vanilla sugar smell that doesn’t overpower or have too much sweetness. It’s delightful.

My all-time favorite scent, subtle and soft and a little powdery, with just enough coconut to make it smell summery. I wear it every day in the summer.

I really enjoyed this. Coconut strong in the vial but nearly disappears on the drydown. The rest lingers lightly, eventually leaving just the wisps of musk.

I grieve and dare not show my discontent,
I love and yet am forced to seem to hate,
I do, yet dare not say I ever meant,
I seem stark mute but inwardly do prate.
I am and not, I freeze and yet am burned,
Since from myself another self I turned.
My care is like my shadow in the sun,
Follows me flying, flies when I pursue it,
Stands and lies by me, doth what I have done.
His too familiar care doth make me rue it.
No means I find to rid him from my breast,
Till by the end of things it be supprest.
Some gentler passion slide into my mind,
For I am soft and made of melting snow;
Or be more cruel, love, and so be kind.
Let me or float or sink, be high or low.
Or let me live with some more sweet content,
Or die and so forget what love ere meant.
Inspired by the tragic, ill-fated love of Queen Elizabeth I and the Earl of Leicester. This is our modernization of a 17th-century perfume blend favored by British aristocracy: rosemary, orange flower, grape spirit, five rose variants, lemon peel, and mint.
Lush, creamy vanilla and the honey of the sweetest kiss smeared with the vital throb of husky clove, swollen red cherries, but darkened with the vampiric sensuality of vetiver, soporific poppy and blood red wine, and a skin-light pulse of feral musk.
‘Tis said that when
The hands of men
Tamed this primeval wood,
And hoary trees with groans of woe,
Like warriors by an unknown foe,
Were in their strength subdued,
The virgin Earth Gave instant birth
To springs that ne’er did flow
That in the sun Did rivulets run,
And all around rare flowers did blow
The wild rose pale Perfumed the gale
And the queenly lily adown the dale
(Whom the sun and the dew
And the winds did woo),
With the gourd and the grape luxuriant grew.
So when in tears
The love of years
Is wasted like the snow,
And the fine fibrils of its life
By the rude wrong of instant strife
Are broken at a blow
Within the heart
Do springs upstart
Of which it doth now know,
And strange, sweet dreams,
Like silent streams
That from new fountains overflow,
With the earlier tide
Of rivers glide
Deep in the heart whose hope has died —
Quenching the fires its ashes hide, —
Its ashes, whence will spring and grow
Sweet flowers, ere long,
The rare and radiant flowers of song!
A sunlit ancient forest, dotted with wild roses, grape vine, and queenly lilies, clothed in swirls of opium smoke.
The fiery, volatile scent of cinnamon, thickened by myrrh, honeysuckle, and copal.
