Possets-Bar Sinister

PERFUME: Bar Sinister

COMPANY: Possets

AVAILABILITY: Permanent

OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: Green Bourbon vanilla extract, sweetbriar, a powerful green musk, and a very highly refined leather, a background of labdenum, and a high and intoxicating silk accord. If you were born to gentry, you might have a stripe running from right to left on which you would have some heraldic figure. That is if you were legitimate. if you were the love child of a powerful man, you might  have a coat of arms with the bar running from left to right and the same figures on it to show who your father was and why you were powerful. This wasn't always granted, but often enough to have the bar sinister be a feature in heraldry. All of the elements of illicit love at play here. Sultry sultry sultry. 

Type: Resinous, incense, musky, sexy

BEFORE I SMELL: Sweetbriar is a species of rose. I haven’t heard this before and I am curious how it behaves in a blend. I love all the other notes even though “green” vanilla and “green” musk are new to me. Maybe it’s a vanilla accord fortified with green elements. I don’t know.

FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: From the bottle I don’t get rose but a little bit of fern and booze.

WET ON SKIN: It blooms to the skin! I smell the silk accord and I know Fabienne had used it to other blends before. How I love this note!  The vanilla it’s different from the regular vanillas. It doesn’t remind me vanilla extract. The leather it’s the one I love! No car seats but lovely high end purse shop in Paris!

DRY DOWN: I do get a boozy note still, like an aged whiskey.  Labdenum is one of my best loved notes. I smell it here but it isn’t a labdanum scent.

FINAL THOUGHTS I loved this from the first time I wore it as my day scent. It stays hours on my skin and it’s becoming even better. When I first got my decant of this I didn’t loved it immediately. So, give to this perfume a little bit time and it won’t disappoint you!

  2. I love discovering new things just by trying perfumes! I have discovered things that I didn't even know existed, and learned more about the things I already knew :) I love when a perfume works when you give it a chance to age. This one sounds so interesting and pretty!

    1. I have learnt so many great things from perfumes! Novels, movies, poets other cultures! Lately, I read the Last Unicorn because of Bpal and I loved it!

      I agree, aging to perfumes sometimes does wonders!!

    2. Isn't it so much fun? I love perfume that is inspired by things!

      That's so cool that you read that book because of bpal! I just looked at The Last Unicorn perfumes on their website. I read through all of the scents inspired by it, and I think I'd like the first one best (The Lilac Wood), but the other ones sound so pretty too! I just started Game of Thrones, but I will add that book to my reading list! It seems like a classic!

    3. I haven't tried any of these scents but I really want to. The Lilac wood sounds so nice!

      I loved the book! It's very easy to read too.
      I want to read or watch Game of Thrones someday to see what'a all the fuss about! I feel like I am loosing something.

    4. I think I will probably get that perfume when I finally have enough money for bpal, and then I will let you know how it is!

      I have been so distracted lately, so I only got through the prologue, but I'm ready to keep reading it. The writing style is so great!
