AMULET-POSSETS



PERFUME: Amulet

COMPANY: Possets

AVAILABILITY: Halloween: The Book of the Dead (Limited Edition)

OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: A first cousin to the now discontinued Perpetual Motion Machine, I saught to retain the metallic part of the blend while bringing something new to the basic idea and making me think of a brass amulet worn round the neck to ward off evil spirits with the magical scent of a very woody vanilla in the background. Resinous, vanilla.

BEFORE I SMELL:  I love the idea of having a perfume as an amulet. Something that it wears close to the skin and it protects you whenever you need it!
Metallic and woody vanilla notes are favorites of mine, so I got this bottle unsniffed!

FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Bourbon vanilla and leather!

WET ON SKIN:  Maybe what I conceive as a leather note is actually the metallic element of the scent. I can’t identify which woods are used. Maybe sandalwood.

DRY DOWN: What a beautiful, deep and grown up vanilla is this I can’t even express with words!

FINAL THOUGHTS: You have to like vanilla and Leather\metallic scents to really appreciate it.  It is very long lasting and it has good silage.
I definitely feel protected when I am wearing it!

  1. This perfume sounds so very pretty! I think I'd enjoy it very much. Plus, I love Halloween collections :) You're right, having a scent stay close to your skin and "protect" you is a cool idea :)

    I used to love Disney movies as a kid, so the beetle picture reminds me of the beetle amulet from Aladdin that makes the sand tiger come to life.

    1. I still watch animation movies! Especially Tim Burton's films.

      I wish this was in her general catalog so more people would buy it. I think it would be very popural.

    2. Oh my gosh, Tim Burton is amazing! As a kid, I remember sweeping and cleaning my parents' patio so I could "earn" the money to buy The Nightmare Before Christmas. Once I had that movie, I watched it nonstop. I still have it memorized to this day :) I also own Corpse Bride, but I still need to see Frankenweenie!

      Maybe she will re-release this perfume for Halloween of this year! :)

    3. You will love Frankenweenie! I liked the other two that you mentioned more but this is still very good:)

      She doesn't usually re-release scents but once in a year or two years she has a big "retour" event that ALL the past limited editions scents return for some days!
