08 November 2005 - 03:51 AMTezcatlipoca is definitely a *power* scent. It's like Centzon Totochtin without the wine/foodiness, or Greed without the sweetness. It has an exquisite resinous drydown.
08 November 2005 - 03:48 AMFor me this starts out as overpoweringly sweet -- the syrup from a can of peaches or pears. There's a bitter undertone -- the vetiver? -- that comes out on the skin, and tempers the sweetness. It adds a complexity but doesn't work well on me.
08 November 2005 - 03:42 AMInferno smells of maraschino cherries and meerschaum smoke. Gorgeous, though not something I'd wear as a personal scent.
27 October 2005 - 03:48 AMManila smells like candy! Pineapple and banana candy. Yum.
In the drydown, a scent like tobacco emerges -- is this the banana leaf? -- and complexifies the fruity aroma, but doesn't quash its sweetness.
I'm not a foody-scent person but I really love Manila and I think I'll try it in an oil burner. What I really wish is that I could get this scent in a soap or shower gel. Maybe it's time to experiment with BPAL and unscented stuff...
30 September 2005 - 10:58 PMThe closest scent to which I can liken the Uranus blend is that of the powdery residue that Dentyne cinnamon-flavored gum leaves on its wrapper.
