PERFUME: The Black Apple of Saturn
AVAILABILITY: Halloween limited edition 2011
OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION:Dried Arkansas black apple, opoponax, cypress, myrrh, tobacco absolute, quince, black musk, and galbanum.
BEFORE I SMELL: I don't always like apple scents especially if they are the clean kind. Although, sometimes I can't resist, it's the fruit of sin after all.
FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Flesh of baked apple and sweet raisins... A night garden with apple trees and burning incense...
WET ON SKIN: very sexy and musky. It's a different take on a fruity perfume. I don't smell the tobacco absolute.
DRY DOWN: The resins take over, I get a little bit of tobacco note and it's the sweet type, very nice. As it dries down I get more galbanum . It doesn't change that much but it has amazing staying power. I put it last night and I could smell it till the morning
FINAL THOUGHTS: Very well blended and different from other apple scents. I wish I had another decant
