Smoldering coals heat the device from below, and steam hisses through two curved pipes, rotating the shining brass sphere.

  1. Gloame

    This is really pretty? And yet it has labdanum? I love amber and ceder so this was bound to at least intrigue me, even if citrus tends to go too wild on me. This dries down to a super soft woody spice, very pleasant, but ultimately doesn’t excite me as much as other blends.

    Where I’d wear this: To commune with nature in the summer

  2. VetchVespers

    Fresh from the bottle this is very lemon verbena, but grounded by the cedar in the background. It reminds me a little of Old English Lemon Oil.

    On my skin, the lemon burns away really quickly and leaves me with a warm, cedar smell which, though pleasant, is too masculine for me to wear as a perfume. I could see this being nice on a guy though and a wonderful room scent. It’s very evocative of an old paneled library or study.

  3. Adam

    This scent is a bit sweet at first, almost gummy, slowly morphing into what I usually smell in headshops. After a bit of wear, the scent hits a constant and somewhat spicy cedar note that lingers for quite a while. There’s still a bit of sweetness (maybe the citrus?), but the wood and spice notes stand out.

    Anyone who loves wood scents, particularly cedars, should jump on this. If you’re not a fan of ambers or the headshop-type scent, either let this one wear a while or pass. I imagine this smelling better on a woman than a man, for what it’s worth.
