Base and earthy, yet glittering with golden notes: patchouli, heliotrope, copal and oakmoss.

Amazing, luxe leather and spice. I was disappointed the bottle I ordered was not as papery as the imp, but I’m hoping some paper notes might develop in time. With the strong paper notes, it reminded me of a fresh, leather-bound journal. Without, I’ve had friends comment on it being too incense-y. It’s still a favorite of mine though. The scent is good when it first arrives, but even better after it’s aged a month.

I have started forcing my boyfriend to wear this because I love it, but already have a million other things I want to wear (thanks BPAL, I’m addicted to you).
In the vial: Woody, musky, mossy, leather, spice and a hint of a dark sweetness (almost like a chocolate smell).
On *my* skin: The sweetness really comes out. Smells like chocolate woods.
On *his* skin: Leathery. Extremely mossy and spicy. Just like a cigar shop or humidor that has been used for years.

This is one of my favorites for day to day wear. It starts out down to earth, but not in an actual dirt or hippy patchouli kind of way. This smells expensive. Then it is kind of golden. But it also becomes papery like bills of money, and the expensive leather of a fine leather purse. To me, this is what wealth and confidence smell like. It drys down to a very pleasant skin scent and lasts and lasts. After several hours on me, it smells somewhat vanilla and still expensive.

Earthy, dark, and uncomplicated. There is no sweetness to this; it’s confident enough without it.
Money, power, disregard.

I recently received a frimp of this. After a full body test, it reminds me of well circulated monetary notes that have spent time in leather wallets. A dark, assertive and slightly sexy blend that morphs slightly after a few hours of wear into a lighter more powdery scent. Medium sillage and throw.

Wet: Patchouli mostly, plus something bright. When fresh on my skin, a note like thuja or cedar wood comes out, very warm and woodsy.
Dry: Still patchouli with a bit of spice. And it fades pretty quickly. Not very inspiring on me.

A salacious, lecherous, leering scent – dirty and dark, slapped with a wet sweetness. Earthy black patchouli swelling with apricot.
“It is only a gesture,” he said, turning back to Shadow. “But gestures mean everything. The death of one dog symbolizes the death of all dogs. Nine men they gave to me, but they stood for all the men, all the blood, all the power. It just wasn’t enough. One day, the blood stopped flowing. Belief without blood only takes us so far. The blood must flow.”
“I saw you die,” said Shadow.
“In the god business,” said the figure—and now Shadow was certain it was Wednesday, nobody else had that rasp, that deep cynical joy in words, “it’s not the death that matters. It’s the opportunity for resurrection. And when the blood flows . . .”
Three days on the tree, three days in the underworld, three days to find your way back: ash, oak, and elm; vetiver, dragon’s blood resin, and cypress; frankincense, copal, and chamomile.
