Old Scratch Perfume Oil


Old Nick, the Devil himself, as seen through the eyes of Victorian New England. A jaunty, dapper scent, deceptively genteel: a lavender fougere with tonka, amber, rosewood and a whiff of diabolical patchouli.

Est deus in nobis.

    This one is interesting. I received it as a frimp and my immediate thoughts were that it’s a hard-to-place scent. Lavender is definitely the top note, richened by amber and rosewood. The patchouli is, as described, only a whiff, which is ideal because I’m usually put off by patchouli. Little sillage but that’s good because my family hates all the perfumes that I like. It’s an elegant, light, uplifting fragrance that wears close to the skin and that’s exactly what I like so it shall become a new daily for me.

    I received this as a frimp. I’d expect the devil to smell a little spicier and less powdery. I don’t usually like powder scents at all, but this tames on the skin. It’s not unpleasant, but perhaps a different name.

  3. satsuma.rat

    In the bottle, I smell lavender, a deep amber, and musky rose; unfortunately, lavender overwhelms it on my skin. It’s lavender powder wet, and turns to rose powder on drydown. A pleasant scent, but not precisely what I’d imagine the devil to smell like – not even a particularly elegant and well-groomed one.
