Full bodied, sexy and just a touch of dirty with a hint of spice coming from something I can't pinpoint. Perhaps the variety of orchid chosen.
This is sort of an extreme version of a skin scent. A stripped down version of Pallas Athene (one of my recent favorites).

This is heady, sexy, and honey. It's like a skin scent... on sex.

I was worried that the fig leaf, might be fig-ish and that reminds me of a Purple Pied Man doll that I had in the 80s. This is not fig the note that I find ruins most fig blends for me. I was also afraid that honey or tobacco would take over and both of those have ruined other blends for me, apparently tobacco honey is just fine. :lol:
That being said, this is a beautiful, mature scent that doesn't readily fall into of the typical categories for me. It isn't strongly floral, or musky, or powdery like it might be from the notes. It weirdly reminds me of Zebra Heliconian even though they don't share any notes except frankincense, and Die is much less floral when wet.
Again, I'm going to get a bottle of this because it is such a nice blend. I think orchid may be a new love.

Wet: A shadowed blot of inky blood musk seeps in, taking the feminine side and giving her a gritty edge.
Dry: The amber coats everything in a resinous haze, and the fig leaf brushes by with a spine-tingling touch.
Verdict: Perfectly evocative of the painting it represents: Creepily romantic and slightly terrifying. I feel like something is watching me when I have this on.

The tobacco honey gives this a slightly wet feeling which goes well with the orchid and fig. Very sexy!

Wet: It smells amazing. Incredible. Sexy, sweet, heady. I think I can pick out maybe the orchid and honey? It really is just wonderfully blended into cozy sexy love.
Dry. BOTTLE NOW :wub2:

If you like Snake Charmer, you need to get a bottle of this. It is so similar to Snake Charmer on me, I can barely tell them apart.

Wet: The tobacco honey becomes more dominant which I like. After that, I get the white fig, amber, and just a hint of orchid. It's much better on my skin.
Dry: Fig, amber, dragon's blood musk, and just a little floral. It's pretty, but not my preference right now.

Wet: Sweaty, sultry musk, thick rich tobacco, honey, and florals. Whoever said a dead ringer for Snake Charmer was just about right.
Dry: Snake Charmer, right on the money! This might be a touch more orchidy and a bit less plummy than the fabled Snake Charmer, but they're so close it would be hard to tell the difference. If you missed SC, get some of this instead!
