The Cat Perfume Oil


There was a polite noise from behind her.

She turned around. Standing on the wall next to her was a large black cat, identical to the large black cat she’d seen in the grounds at home.

“Good afternoon,” said the cat.

Its voice sounded like the voice at the back of Coraline’s head, the voice she thought words in, but a man’s voice, not a girl’s.

“Hello,” said Coraline. “I saw a cat like you in the garden at home. You must be the other cat.”

The cat shook its head. “No,” it said. “I’m not the other anything. I’m me.” It tipped its head to one side; green eyes glinted. “You people are spread all over the place. Cats, on the other hand, keep ourselves together. If you see what I mean.”

“I suppose. But if you’re the same cat I saw at home, how can you talk?”

Cats don’t have shoulders, not like people do. But the cat shrugged, in one smooth movement that started at the tip of its tail and ended in a raised movement of its whiskers. “I can talk.”

“Cats don’t talk at home.”

“No?” said the cat.

“No,” said Coraline.

The cat leaped smoothly from the wall to the grass near Coraline’s feet. It stared up at her.

“Well, you’re the expert on these things,” said the cat dryly. “After all, what would I know? I’m only a cat.”

Sleek, black, dark, and clever: benzoin, honey, cedar, and dark musk.

    The Cat is everything I love in a fragrance: dark and sweet yet somehow just like a body should smell. It’s wonderfully chewy, almost like a molasses caramel, with a fresh topnote from the wood and the green in the honey. Dried out it is both cuddly, without being too cute, and animalic. The sweetness is almost like coconut husk. It is reminiscent of classic orientals, but so much more wearable. Lovers of Snake Oil, Snake Charmer, and Banshee Beat will want to try this!

    what a lovely complicated scent! luckily smells great on me and is a new favorite; i would definitely wear this one daily. one note – it is SUPER sticky, not as viscous as some of the other perfume blends.

    It comes off really powdery on me, but my sister loves it.
