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!
