Got this as a frimp and it’s just lovely. I would not describe it as feral, however, which is a good thing for me. It smells very much like a couple years’ aged Harlot weirdlyt: smooth, clean, sweet. Smells like a lightly citrusy tart.

Bought the imp. Upon application, I smelled the fruity aspect of orange blossom, but after a few moments on my skin the floral took over and dominated the aroma. I was hoping for a greater balance with patchouli but I could barely smell the latter. Since my palate does not agree with sweet florals and I lean towards earthy scents, this is a no go for me. I’m still giving it 3 stars because of the longevity. If you like sweet florals with a fruity whisper, this is for you.

It smells absolutely beautiful in the imp. Wet I get the fruity, brightness of the orange mixed pleasantly with spices. Wet, I absolutely adore it. However, my body chemistry absolutely HATES this. Once it dries, the orange is nowhere to be found and I just get an unpleasantly musty patchouli that reminds me of hanging with a bunch of unwashed skate heads in a disgusting college dorm room.
Longevity is excellent (I can’t even wash it off) and throw is medium. So instead of giving this one star (for the beauty of the scent in the imp only), I’m adding two more for those “benefits”. This could be lovely on someone whose skin doesn’t eat orange and turn patchouli into funk.

Can I just…..I can’t even….it’s so quietly glorious!
I love orange blossom but it’s not in many scents I fall for.
This is softly front and center and couched perfectly with red patchouli. It’s a soft throw that just makes me smile. It reminds me of breezes from open windows in the evenings, when the orange groves are in bloom……

Compelling, complex, and utterly enigmatic: a luxuriant, exotic blend of cherry, red musk, and star anise.
Heard a carol, mournful, holy,
Chanted loudly, chanted lowly,
Till her blood was frozen slowly,
And her eyes were darkened wholly,
Turn’d to tower’d Camelot.
For ere she reach’d upon the tide
The first house by the water-side,
Singing in her song she died,
The Lady of Shalott.
The scent of calm waters just before a raging storm, limned with achingly-beautiful blooms, an icy scent, but somehow warm, and mirror-bright: bold gardenia, crystalline musk, muguet, water blossoms, clear, slightly tart aquatic notes and a crush of white ginger.
Based on a Romany incense blend reputed to induce sexual dreams: Somalian rose, Moroccan rose and Bulgar rose with a sultry dribble of cinnamon.
When, as by glaciers ground, the spate
Swells hissing from beneath,
The water of your mouth, elate,
Rises between your teeth —
It seems some old Bohemian vintage
Triumphant, fierce, and tart,
A liquid heaven that showers a mintage
Of stars across my heart.
A sinister, darkly seductive scent inspired by poetry of Charles Baudelaire. Violet entwined with vanilla and gardenia.
