Scent Description and Notes: “Velvety star-touched indigo musk with star jasmine, white patchouli, vanilla orchid, moonflower, night-blooming cereus, olibanum, and a drop of Ceylon cinnamon.“ -scentbase.com
Oil Color: A slightly more orange dry pasta color.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from Absinthetics. On the back, she has the notes of the scent, the name of the scent in orange bold font, and her decanting information in green. The font of the label has black iron-work cogs on it.
- ITI: It’s very perfume-y: strong indigo musk, jasmine, and cereus resonate with the patchouli and dark olibanum. I’m not getting any spiciness from the Ceylong cinnamon, which I think would make the scent more appealing as a whole.
- Wet: Ah, there’s the lovely spice that makes the generic “perfume” scent something more esoteric and inviting. It enhances and deepens the other reins while it keeps the florals from getting too dominant and turning the scent into a Glade reprieve.
- Dry: After just over an hour, the scent has dried down to a pleasant, warm, and darkly maternal combination of musk, vanilla orchid cereus, super light jasmine (thankfully), with a dusting of patchouli, olibanum and Ceylon cinnamon.
Other Impressions: None.
