    Sweet beeswax melded to creamy elegant rose, a very faint whisper of smoke (that seems to come and go) and smooth soft tobacco. It’s somewhat romantic and mysterious, but comforting and glowing. I love this one!

    Exactly what Jenjin said. I get burning ember and smoke clearly in the bottle, but on the skin the rest of the notes bloom beautifully. It’s beautiful.

    Not so long ago, candles were the only source of light in the dark night. This beautiful scent, brings to mind these magical places with their flickering light of paper lanterns, bringing warmth and sweetness into a lover’s dark, and secret room.

    Simple yet refined, as soon as it hits the skin i’m getting the lab’s transformative beeswax note: sweet and creamy mixed with the bewitching purple rose. It brings to mind the traditional Japanese paper lantern, burning with soft, diffused light; ever altering the ambience the night has to offer while creating a seductive space.

    The wax and the rose are the main notes on my skin, along with tiny wiffs of spicy tobacco and silver smoke in the background. Overall, it’s cozy and wearable — warm, nostalgic and intoxicating. I already have a bottle of The Light of Men’s Lives, but Flickering Lantern is a mysterious, feminine version, with it’s delicate and creamy purple note.
