Anathema Perfume Oil


A scent as heavy as thunder from the Vatican, with notes that inspire every sin and excess. Black opium, with vetivert and honeysuckle.

    I’d say this is a very heavy scent. A dark, smoky, honeyed floral. Definitely lives up to what it aspires to be, but a bit too intense for me.

    When I fist apply this one it smells wonderful. The honeysuckles plays delightfully against the sweet but musky backdrop. Unfortunately, on me the honeysuckle only sticks around for about fifteen minutes before the opium eats it and I’m left with just the backdrop. After that it’s pleasant enough, but a little one note and uninteresting.

    Anathema is a big, heady floral with a lot of staying power, the kind of thing you might wear to seduce an international super spy. If you love that sort of scent, this is a 5 or 6 star blend. I don’t perceive the vetiver here at all; in fact I was hoping for more smokiness. This is quite gorgeous, just not something I would wear very often, as my life is simply too mundane for this one!

    Vatican is right! This scent reminds me a whole lot of Event Horizon, except a bit sweeter and lighter. Heavy incense made lighter with sweet honeysuckle. That being said, I personally prefer Event Horizon.

    My go-to “lady” perfume. I’m not a big fan of floral scents, but I really enjoy this one.

  6. VetchVespers

    Lots of heady honeysuckle in the imp and wet. A woody warmth starts to peak out which I thought be cedar at first. Cedar hates me, so I prepared for the worst, but to my pleasant surprise, the woody smell settled back into an soft brown warmth and made itself known as vetiver. This vetiver is the sweet, lighter kind as opposed to the heavy and charred kind. It plays well with opium to darken and enrich the syrupy sweet honeysuckle. This is more warm resins on me, with a touch of honeysuckle sweetness, than a floral perfume. Well balanced, feminine, and a touch mysterious.

  7. Jodi

    Holy Moly! This is a heady, decadent, floral, dripping with juicy nectar. If you are afraid of vetiver, fear not. This has none of the dirty or smoky overtones of vetiver heavy blends; its only purpose here to nail the fragrance to your skin. It has an almost vicious sillage and powerful tenacity.
