Anyone have suggestions for scents that contain honey with musk and/or amber? That scent combination is absolutely intoxicating to me. I have Lady Una, Swift as Light, Blooming Flowers of Spring, Faun, and recently got Vagina Treasure hair gloss. I love the slight skankiness of the hair gloss.

 

For sure The Bride, if you can find it, I like the honey musk in it even better than Lady Una.

 

Another one that doesn't get as much love as it deserves is Sleeping Nymph and Satyrs Wild woods, Bulgarian rose, tolu balsam, vanilla absolute, ambergris, honey, and vanilla. The ambergris is very musky in it.

 

Creeper Dragon is a sexy honey and musk scent Creeper Dragon Musk: daemonorops, green leather, and red musk with dribbles of honey and white cream.

 

Sanguinem Menstruum is another musk/honey/beeswax fave The copper tang of blood musk, swept by a cloud of dying bees and red poppies of madness.

 

For a much darker honey and musk scent, I like The Cat Sleek, black, dark, and clever: benzoin, honey, cedar, and dark musk

Thank you Celestia for the recommendations! I have a few on that list that I haven't tried in a while, so I will have to take them out and re-test them! And the others I'm going to go read some reviews and see what I can find. L'Estate has been on my wishlist forever, and I recently snagged a bottle, so I'm excited to see how it smells! It sounds like we like a lot of the same scents!


You are super welcome! I can never resist answering honey/amber blend requests! Haha. I hope there's something that works for you!

I don't get much honey per se, from L'Estate but it is indeed a glorious golden blend! I was also actually super excited to read that you love Lady Una and Blooming Flowers of Spring. Lady Una is mostly honeyed tea and light musk on me, it's my favourite dominant floral-honey blend! The Bride also has honey musk as aforementioned in my post, but it's not so honey-centric like Lady Una is, it's a lot more fresh clean due to the floral (magnolia) in that blend..which is also quite dominant! I get more honey from Cave of Treasures (and it also has amber!) but that too is also quite floral-dominant, but they are indeed absolutely beautiful floral-centric honeyed blends abd worth testing. Who knows, your chemistry might go either way ... It might be all honey musk and honey/amber on you!

Since Blooming Flowers of Spring was predominantly also very honey-centric on me, I thought you might prefer more honey dominant blends :D ( without a lot of extra stuff, like red musk or tobacco, which I find can overwhelm an otherwise very honey-amber-centric blend.. but you might love them even more, hence I added some anyway. You might like to try them if they don't contain any notes you are adverse to).. but yes! I took a peek at your wishlist and we do seem to like quite a bit of the same scents :D Yayyyy! I'm going to shut up now because I could go on about honey and amber all day.

Thank you both for all the recommendations! I do have The Bride, Cave of Treasures, and Sanguinem Menstrum. I love them all, but I think the florals in the first two, and the red musk in the last take over the scent. I think Celestia is right, I really love the honey dominate blends :D You guys have given me so many great suggestions! I will start hunting for some of these! Thank you!

In that case, armed with that knowledge for your desire to experience honey/amber and honey/light musk dominant blends, let: Blossoms in Springtime, O, Harikata, The Lights of Men's Lives, and This Wan White Humming Hive be your first hunts! :D

Let us know how you go!

Harikata sounds amazing! I have to hunt down a bottle of that! Anactoria, Sleeping Nymphs, and A Wonderful Light sound awesome as well! Definitely keeping an eye open for those! And possibly Creeper Dragon and Mrs. Bunce. I have a teeny amount of Blossoms in Springtime, so I rarely use it. So I tested it again and yep, amazing! Need more! And I should mention that I amp beeswax, so as nice as Wan White Hummingbird and Lights of Men's Lives are, they turn into beeswax single note on my skin.
Edit: I'm realizing that I have a lot more scents like this in my collection than I thought :-P

Harikata is gorgeous, but has a really strong orchid (vanilla flower) note that drowns out the honey, at least on my skin. Still totally worth trying though.

I just got a bottle of Kypris, and it's a new honey fave - Peru balsam, vanilla bean, Rainier cherry, bitter almond, golden honey, rose water, lemon peel, sugar cane, and benzoin.

If you like a bit of spice, you might also try Bartholomaeus Anglicus’ Phoenix  scorched, honeyed cedar and carob wood aflame with amber, cinnamon, and red sandalwood.

merciful freya, how I have not recommended Honeyed Apple from the 2016 Weenies?! It is the most beautiful perfumy honey I have ever smelled. Door dries down to that same honey as well on me.

Bast from American Gods would be worth trying:  a desert wind alight with myrrh and golden amber, cardamom and honey, bourbon vanilla and cacao. It ended up smelling quite a bit like Morocco plus honey on me. Exotic honeyed musk.

The use of honey in the Fleurette's Purple Snails collection is pretty lovely.: seconding the recommendation of the Bride because the honey musk is gorgeous. But it's also lovely in FPS's Adante con Fantasia but an entirely different beast. It's heavier and more fuzzy . . . it's a darker honey to my nose at least.
