On me, the orange smell disappeared within the first ten minutes. Skin chemistry issue, I guess. I was left with a herbal spicyness which, I agree, smelled like a magic shop. I think it would have made a better room scent than a perfume, though.

delicate and lovely, the ambergris and carnation give it a bit of basement mustiness, which i actually think works very nicely. it gives the spiciness of the patchouli and tang of the orange blossom an antique aura. this is light and wistful.

This was my second choice for myself to try (the other being Anne Bonny) and was very surprised by this. I’m not normally into floral scents but it was the Patchouli that got me to try it out. And my goodness does it smell amazing both in the bottle and on my skin. Makes me smell like a more feminine version of my magic shop (while it smells like Saytr on the masculine side). I really don’t know what my skin picked up on but its lovely. I just wish it wasn’t so light as time passes. Once I try out all the other scents I want to try this might be one of those bigger bottle buys.

This is very nice. The orange blossom smells like dried or candied orange peel . It’s very orangey, but not citrusy. It balances well with the patchouli, which gives Masquerade an earthy sweetness. The carnation’s spiciness lurks in the background with the amber, almost giving this a subtle clove vibe and adding a luxe feel. This makes me think of warm bodies crowded together in soft light. It’s sensual and elegant and very aptly named. I’m definately considering a 5ml.

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.
A raven-haired Fairy Queen of Ireland.
One of her eternal duties dictates that she must hold a midnight court every season and hear the pleas of married Irishwomen. The court serves only to determine whether or not husbands are adequately serving their wife's sexual needs. A judicious yet powerfully sensual blend, a mingling of justice and sexuality: sage, sweet pea, bold pale musk and warm tonka.
In 1897, a new form of entertainment was presented to the people of Montmartre, Paris: the Théâtre du Grand Guignol. During the course of an evening at the theatre, one would watch several small plays, ranging from crime dramas to sexual farces, a violent, throat-ripping, eye-gouging, acid-tossing good time, which always included shock topics such as infanticide, necrophilia, insanity, murder, paranoia, vengeance and death by common household object. Our Grand Guignol perfume is a shot of sweet apricot brandy; just enough to settle your nerves after a ghoulish, gory brush with the macabre.
This haunting, exotic scent is named in honor of the shapeshifting demons from Hindu mythology. Sandalwood with rose and patchouli.
