Selections from our general catalog of perfumes may have succumbed to frostbite, but never fear! We haven’t lost our molten core of passion for seeing justice served. Consider this our holiday prayer for a reckoning long overdue: May human decency prevail over the corruption and wickedness that endangers so many of our neighbors, and may our government’s assorted agencies be held accountable for their ongoing assault against the civil liberties of those seeking refuge in our land of bountiful freedoms.

Melt the hoarfrost of this administration’s cruelty with this scent of warmth, safety, and succor: smoked toffee and patchouli with coffee bean, caramelized oudh, clove, and bourbon vanilla.

Oil Color: An iced wine colored oil.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from Yowahoshihime. On the back, she has the notes of the scent and her decanting name. The front of the label has an image of the label art like below:
- ITI: Oh dang, that is sweet! I’m getting gobs of molten caramel poured over bourbon vanilla ice cream, topped with toffee and a coffee liquor with a cool patchouli smoke undertone.
- Wet: The bourbon vanilla merges as the dominant note once applied to my skin, followed by a welcome dose of coffee bean and a hint of patchouli before the smoked toffee and caramelized oudh begin to rival the bourbon vanilla.
- Dry: Thankfully, the smokiness and patchouli warm considerably next to the caramelized oudh, shifting the scent away from cloying sweetness to something with a more resinous tone that is a bit more wearable. After 5 hours, I’d characterize the scent as a faded coffee house with distant warmed caramel and vanilla toffee.
Other Impressions: “I don’t know. It kinda smells like a hibiscus muffin.” -Tony
