In the bottle it reminded me of Humanite, but instead of caramelized vanilla there was cocoa. The florals are in the back and I smelled mostly cocoa and white peach. Yummy!
Wet on the skin it was about the same, except the cocoa backed down some.
Now here is where the fun starts. This one morphed quite a lot on me and I was almost a bit confused when I smelled it 10 minutes after the application and then 30 minutes after that.
When it dried down it started to act as all other chocolate scents on me; it gave of this wierd scent. It wasn’t overwhelming nor foul, but it saddened me a bit. The honey comes in and saves the day, it mellowed down the wierd scent as it portrayed itself more. The floral backs away as well as the peach. The scent has a saltiness to it, which I think is from the ambergris.
A little while after the drydown and the cocoa as well as the peach portrays themselves again. Jesus Christ, this one changed. I’ve never had a bottle that changed so much back and forth. Now the blend is beautiful, no note take over the other. It has a fullness to it, a sweetness to it, a saltiness to it (not overwhelming).. I do fancy this one.

Undoubtedly the greatest marvel of Spiritualism is the materialisation of the spirit form. It is highly interesting to study the gradual development of this phenomenon. It was not till some years after the advent of modern Spiritualism that materialisation was heard of. At first the spirits had power only to materialise a hand or foot, and that very imperfectly; then they were able to produce faces, several sometimes showing at one sÃ©ance; but even at that time the spirits prophesied that the time would shortly come when they should be able to materialise a complete human form, and walk about in our midst. That time has now come. On two occasions I have witnessed the phenomenon of a spirit reincarnating itself — putting on a material body and dress — the body to all intents a human body, and the dress fabric of earthly produce. The spirit has not suddenly burst on my view in a perfected form, but slowly evolved out of nothingness before my eyes, and again melted away, repeating the process again and again!

A quiet perfume that emerges slowly out of nonbeing: white musk, ambergris accord, coconut, almond milk, and honeysuckle.
Her hair was pale and colorless in the moonâs thin light. She wore a white cotton nightgown, with a high lace neck and a hem that swept the ground. Shadow sat up, entirely awake. âYou are Zorya Polu .Â .Â . ,â he hesitated. âThe sister who was asleep.â
âI am Zorya Polunochnaya, yes. And you are called Shadow, yes? That was what Zorya Vechernyaya told me, when I woke.â
âYes. What were you looking at, out there?â
She looked at him, then she beckoned him to join her by the window. She turned her back while he pulled on his jeans. He walked over to her. It seemed a long walk, for such a small room.
He could not tell her age. Her skin was unlined, her eyes were dark, her lashes were long, her hair was to her waist and white. The moonlight drained colors into ghosts of themselves. She was taller than either of her sisters.
She pointed up into the night sky. âI was looking at that,â she said, pointing to the Big Dipper. âSee?â
âUrsa Major,â he said. âThe Great Bear.â
âThat is one way of looking at it,â she said. âBut it is not the way from where I come from. I am going to sit on the roof. Would you like to come with me?â
Pale amber and ambergris, gossamer vanilla, moonflower, and white tobacco petals.
Â I promised her my eternal love, and I actually thought that for a couple of hours.Â
Rake, scoundrel, demon in a frock coat. Devilishly seductive, ultimately tragic; a villain undone and redeemed by love. Based on an 18th century gentlemenâs cologne: ambergris, white musk, white sandalwood, Spanish Moss, orange blossom, three mints, jasmine, rose geranium and a spike of rosemary.
