In Irish folklore the Dana O’Shee are a fae, elven people that live in a realm of beauty, their nobility akin to our that own Age of Chivalry, eternally beautiful and eternally young. They surround themselves with the pleasures of the Arts, they live for the hunt, and to this day can be seen riding in procession through the Irish countryside at twilight, led by their King and Queen. However, the Dana O’Shee are not benevolent creatures, despite what their unearthly beauty may imply. They are vengeful and treacherous and possess a streak of mischievous malice, and many have whispered that their true home lies deep in the shadowed groves of the Realm of the Dead. Hearing even a single chord of their otherworldly music leaves one stunned and lost to the mortal realms for ever, finding themselves prey to the Dana O’Shee’s hunt or enslaved in their Court as servants or playthings.

Offerings of milk, honey and sweet grains were made to placate these creatures, and it is that the basis of the scent created in their name.

    Since perfume is so subjective, my 5 stars are based on the scent lasting through the day and not irritating my sensitive skin or giving me a headache. A free Dana O’Shee imp was included with my order, and it is not a scent I’d have picked for myself at first glance. But it is deceptively lovely, and it grew on me throughout the hours as I lifted my wrist and caught a hint of its bouquet. When I first dabbed it on, it enveloped my senses in sweet almond liqueur. I asked my husband what he thought of it a few minutes later and he said it reminded him of the beach. I inhaled again to see if I agreed, and I smelled a hint of coconut. As it warmed to my skin throughout the day, it rounded out into a softly enticing vanilla, well-balanced by the initial notes of fragrance I’d detected. I don’t usually go for those sweet edible scents, but for this one I may just make an exception. Fitting, now that I read the description, as I’ve always felt a strong connection to the fae.

    I purchased 6 imps, and had 2 freebies sent, as well. My goal is to try one a day until I’ve tried them all. Yesterday was Dana O’Shee’s day.

    I adored it, and it is definitely going on my ‘order the big bottle’ list. The milk & honey smell is so pleasant, soothing, and there is something deeply and delicately feminine about it. There is a dash of something else sweet, as well, that I can’t identify. Very well layered. It isn’t the strongest of the oils in my set, but I’ve been looking for something more subtle. It lasted at least 6 hours that I ca recall.

    I got this as a sample, and it’s very nice. It reminds me of angel food cake and amaretto.

    I got this as an imp and it smells very pleasantly of lemon poppyseed muffins! I’ve been wanting a perfume that smelled like that for ages! The smell lasts and isn’t at all overpowering; just the right strength.

    This is such a lovely scent! It’s similar to a perfume from a popular British line I liked but was discontinued. This one is better in my opinion, since it doesn’t smell synthetic or give me a headache. “Dana O’Shee” is a soft, powdery, almond (I’ve never had marzipan, so I can’t comment on the comparison) gourmand fragrance. It lasted a long time on my skin, like a day and a night. The sillage is not very far reaching, which to me is okay since I don’t like invasive scents. Very delicate and pretty, this is definitely one I’ll be ordering regularly so I always have it on hand.

    This one reminds me a bit of an almond and oatmeal soap I sometimes buy from the grocery store. It’s a wonderful delicate, light, powdery scent in the imp, with a warm almond undertone. On my skin, it predominately smells of almond and powder. Over the day, the almond disappears and leaves behind just a trace of the powdery scent. This one is not very long-lasting, but it’s so wonderful I don’t mind re-applying periodically. Clean and light.

    There is a certain British bath products company that comes out each Christmas with almond-scented soaps and bath bombs. Dana O’Shee is the perfect final layer for those products. It’s almond cookies and marzipan and cyanide (in a good way). On my skin, it’s pure almond – sweet at first, then dries down to warm almond. If you love that type of sweet (to wear or to eat), you must pick up Dana O’Shee. PS – Don’t eat it

    This is very powdery wet. As it dried it was very light, barely there in scent, but I really liked that. It was soft, sweet and feminine when dry and I will be buying this one again.

    This was recently included as a frimp with my last purchase. It is truly lovely scent, a bit light, but fresh, warm, and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at how well I liked this and plan to get a bottle.

    I can’t believe I just found this scent!

    I have been looking for a baby-powder type of soft scent but that smelled mature and beautiful instead of childish. It smells like honey, and the barest hint of flowers and greenery, and powder.

    If you want a scent that is soft and sweet, but also manages to be powerful and dainty, try this one!
