Hi guys! I know Summer is over but I really wanted to share my impressions of this order with you. Unfortunately, these scents are not longer available but Possets is great and has Retours so if you want something and you missed out fear not!
Etna: Strong and aromatic, Etna is a powerful blend of grey and crystal musk, a musk I put together which I call 992 and packs a real punch.
Bottle: It reminds me of a tiger balm I have for when I am sick. Another thing that come to mind (and it doesn't mean that it's a bad thing) is a shaving gel that I used as a teenager for shaving my legs. In fact, I believe that it's the memory of the gel that the gel itself and the hours that I used to spend in the bathroom pampering myself.
Wet: Camphor and a hint of spearmint, then amazing musks. It's perfumy and elegant.
Drydown: Slightly medicinal, musky, grown up scent. Medium through and lasting power.
Verdict: This is unique and I am very happy to have it in my collection!
Cannoli: Deep fried tubes of the lightest crust filled with sweetened ricotta cheese.
Cannoli are my favorite treats when I go to Italy. I wish I could make them home so delicious. So, When I first saw this collection Cannoli was my first WANT!
Bottle: Yeast and fried crust as promisted. Initial snif I am not so fond of how it smells.
Wet: Mmm it's getting better. Handmade dough. Still I don;t get the cream cheese filling.
To my nose, I almost get a clean note like cucumber. I don't have a clue why it's there but note that yeast scent do weird things to my body chemistry. I am not to Italy yet.
Dry: After more than 15 minutes it's getting closer to the cannoli scent that I have in mind. It's milkier and I am getting whifs of milk chocolate now and then.
High silage and staying power
My sister thinks that this is the best perfume that I have ever bought, and she is very picky!
Verdict: Initialy I thought that this was a fail but after a while it's a nice, cozy foodie blend and I really enjoy it. So glad that the strange note disappeared
Whan I first read the descriptions on the gelato line, I wanted all of them. I' ve decided to go with is one first beause of all the rave reviews.
Bottle: Blood orange and Kumquat. This is LOVE.
Wet: Shour Kumquat and candied blood orange. This is Heaven in the bottle. So glad I bought this.
Dry: My mother makes camdied Kumquat and this is what I am smelling with the lovely gelato note.
Verdict: I want to bath in this:)
Medusa:To celebrate the loveliness which Medusa lost Possets has come up with a coconut fragrance which is latticed throughout with a kiss of olive blossom, a hint of myrtle, and a very small amount of stone
A non foodie coconut! I am sold!
Bottle: Fresh air and coconut flesh. It has a spa like quality due to the olive blossom. Myrtle gives thia a herbal kick and a mediterranean flair.
Wet: Ellusive and pretty, sweet and herbaly. This perfume makes me wanting to explore myrtle more. What a lovely note.
Dry: It doesn't change much. it's great for everyday if you, like me, love fresh and clean scents.
