  1. Claire

    This is exactly what it says it is. Smells like anise or licorice. A fresh, pop of a scent. As it wears I can smell the lemon a bit more.

  2. Stef

    It is what it says on the bottle, and that’s FANTASTIC. Very minty and licoricey going on and it gets mellower and sweeter as it dries. It’s definitely a glass of absinthe after all the sugar’s dripped through.

  3. Lunashayde

    In the bottle it has a strong licorice/good n plenty smell to it . Wet on my skin it still smells like that, the sugary licorice smell. Dry it has kind of a spearmint gum w/ a hint of licorice to it. It doesn’t smell masculine or feminine. Remember results differ person to person.

  4. Serena

    Oh man. Definitely absinthe. But still clean enough to be a wonderful perfume as well. Perhaps wouldn’t wear to work though for those that recognize it. Fades quite quickly on me, even though my “normal” amount came on extremely strong at first. So beautiful though, I love it so much. For itself and the memories it recreates.

  5. Jae

    Smells just like the green fairy.

    I enjoy this scent more than I thought I would. It is light and sweet, with an emphasis on anise, but with other herbs working well to compliment the anise. It’s very good, but it on the faint side (i.e. not enough throw).

  7. verodelrio

    Magical and fresh smelling. I love anise so this one is a personal favorite.

  8. thecoffeeslayer

    In the bottle: Tussin cough syrup- original flavor. With a slight woody lingering note.

    Wet: still tussin, but the wood note is stronger, and the sharp note of anise is coming out. Nose tickling in its sharpness.

    Dry: Oh thank goodness, no more tussin. Wood, sharp anise (not licorice in the candy sense at all), something almost lemony with mint, but really – AHA Lemon balm & mint!

    Aftermath: There’s not much staying power for this on me. a faint green drift of mint. My roomie swears it smells of Sandalwood.

  9. Gloame

    Oh wow! Green licorice! I totally forgot absinthe had anise (and thus ‘licorice’) and this was a fun surprise. I’ve never smelled absinthe (the real kind or the ‘legal’ kind) so I can’t speak to whether or not it matches that, but it certainly smells like a green fairy. Very unique, unexpected, and fun. I like this! …But it is not a scent I’d wear. 😛

    Where I’d wear this: A candy-themed party or an opium den.

    Honestly, if you love the smell of black licorice, you will love this. I for one definitely love this! The most bold scent to me is the unmistakable anice, followed by the mint. It makes for a fun and bold scent, one that I’ve enjoyed wearing around the holidays.

  11. cobrien.extraordinaire

    Yup. Smells like absinthe.

  12. mopsylemon

    Wet (on tester strip): mint, artemisia, hyssop, lemon.
    Dry (on tester strip): mint, hyssop, anise.

    Wet (on skin): lemon, hyssop.
    Dry (on skin): anise, hyssop, mint, lemon.

    This is very nice! I wasn’t sure if I’d like it since I’m not familiar with cardamom -other than to know it is supposed to be slightly “spicy”- and some of the notes seemed a peculiar choice. The hyssop gives it an subtly feminine slant with a mild soapy/powdery feel. The anise is very light in this mix until it’s been on the skin for quite a while. The lemon, artemisia, and mint seem to be equally light in the mix.

    Overall, this is a very cool and refreshing scent. I enjoy the heavier and sweeter incarnations of absinthe as well, but this is a great interpretation on the opposite end of the spectrum. I would go so far as to say it is probably one of the more true-to-life creations.

    I will definitely be getting a bottle of this!

  13. Adelin

    I got this as an Imp when I ordered The Unquiet Grave, and I almost like Absinthe even better! I was worried about how it would smell on my skin when I wafted the bottle, but once I applied it, I caught a very pleasant black licorice smell with a hint of a warm woody smell. The scent is nicely intoxicating, but sadly, it fades quickly. I put it on while watching a show just to test it, and it was gone within the hour. But, I’d gladly re-apply it and even buy a full bottle.
