in the vial, it smells exactly like yarrow oil. Bubblegumy.
Wet on my skin, I got a strong "my garbage is going bad" from this.
It smells sweet and decaying, like tea bags in the garbage...like rotting something. Whatever is in my garbage right now...banana peels, the aforementioned chai tea bags, bit of lettuce, eggshells, a wrapper from a brie cheese container...you get the picture...decay those and you got Delphi.
As it dries, it smells better, but it still has that rotting quality. I can sense a little bay in this and a little honey yet I don't think either of them is making the rank note.
Later, it is almost rotten tomato smelling...ok, that is enough for me, thanks, I am full.
I notice this one isn't my body chemistry because I tried it on my skin and then on a shirt without my skin and woo, horrid rank decaying garbage scent. Do people really like this? I keep smelling it and smelling it, hoping it will turn into something beautiful, but it keeps on keeping on the rancid tip. AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!
It's just so rank. It's icky. Ok, I will smell the shirt one more time. Yes, it is disgusting. It's strong, rotten garbage sweet...oh I wish I could explain the smell...rotting fruit?...it's just rotten garbage smell...I need to wash that shirt because I have a feeling Delphi is going to last into next week and not smell any better.
Oh, Jack is not the worst BPAL scent I have ever smelled, this one is. Thank the God rubbing this into the skin makes it smell a bit like incense and then it disappears, I don't think I could take the rank smell any longer.
