    This is a nice scent and basically matches exactly what it says it’s going to be. I can smell coconut predominantly followed by the other scents listed. It’s a warm scent. I can actually see how it’s similar to Miskatonic, actually as another reviewer pointed out, except neither of these ever smelled like parchment or old books to me, but very much like food.

    This smells nice, but it is VERY, VERY similar to Miskatonic University imo. (Actually, nearly indistinguishable, which is strange because they apparently have different notes) Just like Miskatonic, the heady, creamy foodie scent dries down to an old book smell. I smell NO coconut whatsoever, in any stage of wear, and I’ve worn this 3 times since purchasing. The rum is pleasant, not overpowering, and stays until the end when it is coupled with the old book scent. I smell NO true tobacco either. A twin scent to Miskatonic. A pretty scent but I’m not crazy about it.

    Sunny & warm.

    Top notes: omgosh vanilla sugar. But it mellows really quickly and then it’s a lovely, smooth, sugared tobacco. I’m struggling to pick up the rum note. Maybe I should drink it more often to be better familiarized to it.

    Caribbean, sunny, warm. Love it.

    Right off initial application, the rum is quite strong to me, a sharp note that I don’t entirely enjoy. The scent mellows out after a few minutes, though, into a softer, coconutty perfume with a background note of vanilla-y, kind of fruity or lily-like (might be the tobacco?) something. I don’t dislike it, but I’m not really fond of it, either.

    I received this as a freebie with an order of imps, and it became my favorite out of everything I got!

    It is a very sweet scent, but it also has a lovely warmth to it that rounds it out and keeps it from getting that weird tang that cheap overly sweet commercial perfumes tend to have.

    I love the sweetness of this scent!

    A sweet, buttered, almost-almondy rum is what came to my mind upon application. The rum never expressed itself in a “boozy” way; it’s more akin to rum-flavored bakery. The coconut and tobacco became clearer as it dried, and the two pair together quite well.

    The loa would be pleased with this scent.

    Sugar, rum, coconut and tobacco, in that order, are all very obvious and up front in Elegba. This would be a top notch oil for dressing candles for a Santaria ritual but for me, it is far too sweet to wear. There are really no subtleties to comment on for there is nothing subtle about it. What you see in the description is exactly what you smell with the sugar and rum coming first.

    If you love sweet scents, this might be one for you!

    The sweet rum, followed by coconut, comes across the clearest, with just a hint of a sharpness to the scent to keep it from becoming the bitter sugar sweetness that I’ve found in some commercially made sweet perfumes.

    Definitely speaks (vs. screaming. 😉 ) in rich ‘warm night with a sultry breeze’ sort of tropical tones. Or a coconut cookie, in a less poetic description. 🙂
