PERFUME: The field of Reeds
OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: Relief and relaxation, paradise Egyptian style. Sweet sandalwood and two ambers, a touch of wood for reeds, and a kiss of golden musk, black pepper married with a drop of labdanum and this conjures the eternal happy golden light in which the elect must have bathed every day. A smooth and resinous sweet blend but with enough of the spice kick of a modern perfume to escape being downright primative.
BEFORE I SMELL: The scent of Aaru the Heaven for the Ancient Egyptians. Filled with Reeds which are something like papyrus if I am not mistaken.
This poppet was sent to me as a freeby. Black pepper doesn't always work for me but I am wondering how reeds smell and how Heavenly this is.
FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Black pepper, lots of resins and something slightly medicinal.
WET ON SKIN: The black pepper is very well blended and it doesn't overpower the blend so fear not! The labdanum and the sandalwood are the stars of the show. It's not a green scent, at least on me. It's very woody, unisex and resinous.
DRY DOWN: The musks and the woods are so beautiful when the black pepper eventually goes away. It's almost like this one has a drop of vanilla in it.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Full bottle without a question!
