At first the Snake Oil and tonka are most noticable, but after a few minutes the leather and sage become more appararent. Long-lasting and absolutely gorgeous! One of my favorite BPAL scents of all time!

Wet on me, Western Diamondback is an even sweeter Snake Oil, which was not what I was expecting from dry components like sage, leather and sandalwood. So, tonka, leather and Snake Oil at first, and it’s gorgeous. If you like these ingredients, you can hardly go wrong here. The sandalwood and sage help keep the balance, but on my skin they stay well in the background. Gradually the leather and friends fade away and I’m left with Snake Oil. My favorite of the Snake Pit so far.

A quick little update… Western diamondback is still a delightful scent! But, it does dry you out. After a week of wearing it behind my ears and my wrists everyday, my skin was just devastated! Lots of peeling and dryness. It could just be *my* skin though… and I got around this by putting down vaseline before I added the scent–thankfully, this actually makes it last longer too! So, just be aware of this if you’re living in a dry climate or have very dry skin like I do. Still one if my favorite scents though! Even if it does have a bite. 😉

I’ve been wearing this scent for a little over a week so I could really try to put my finger on a good description. When wet on the skin, the first scent is a very, very strong leather base that sort of covers up everything but the tonka. Then, once it dries, the scent becomes more of a dusty (as in lots of dirt on a road dusty, not old house dusty) snake oil sweet. Also, the scent lingers for hours and hours! Very long lasting. A good, outdoorsy but still sweet and sensual smell. The only reason I’m giving it four stars instead of five is because I wish the sage and sandalwood were more recognizable.

So satisfying! Tonka & Snake Oil are an ideal pairing; serpentine sweetness coiled around a leather, sage & sandalwood base. Western Diamondback is a real pleasure.

Sexuality, power, confidence. A meeting of modern, sleek elegance and rich, passionate history: sheer amber, black leather, white mint, lemon peel, white tea, grapefruit, kush, teakwood and orchid.
Frankincense, myrrh, leather, ti leaf, saint wood, benzoin, and labdanum absolute.
All mystique and thrumming power: gurjum balsam, Sumatran dragon’s blood resin, olibanum, galangal, oleo gum resin, and frankincense.
