Topics I've Started
09 February 2009 - 04:26 AMThis scent is similar to the original but there is difference right off the top.
Comparing this to the original you get a much softer less intense medicinal scent then you get in the bottle of the original. It has a softer, more powdery floral scent from a flower I just can't place.
This one on at first is so much lighter and softer then the original. Again the new floral note in it offers a light sweetness and delicateness. It almost disappears for a second, but a little more sniffing brings it back. Next to the original in this stage shows two totally different scents, but one's that are clearly related at the same time.
In the end this scent has many of the notes that made me fall in love with Numb, but with an added softness that reminds me of that soft floral of Havisham or some of Beth's other older florals.
If you are a floral lover, or like a classic feminine scent you are going to go weak in the knees for this one!! I don't tend towards either but I still love this one!!!

Tried at will call.
First sniff sweet yummy and foody!
On this one is cakey and delicious but it is in no way as heavy as some of the other foody blends (gluttony, beaver moon and the like). This one is so sweet and light I almost lost it at one point and decided to add one more drop to see it out. This is so tasty and might lead some of you over to the foody side.
Before this was brought out to sniff I had asked a labbie how she thought this smelled and she said a watery version of Beaver Moon and I have to say I so see that description in it. There is something slightly watery about this. Maybe Alice had already begun to cry before she ate this little morsel.

I tried this one at the willcall and it is so not like I had expected. It starts at a strange green jumble of scents. It is sweet and edible but not quite distiguishable at first. Then as the time goes by it developes fruitier notes. Then on me a sweet lime fragrance came up. It reminds me in some ways of Detox but at the same time is totally different in the back notes. It would make a great refreshing summer scent.

In the Imp: A deep scent of musk and patchouli with a subtle flower backdrop
on wet: This scent is not as strong or dark as I would have thought, first reading the description. Its a bit ozoney with its perfect blend of floral and deep. Nothing is coming forward on me everything is in balance making it difficult to pick out any one scent.
drydown: The deeper scents are coming forward but thankfully not the vetiver (which does not like me). This is becoming very patchouli musk forward. The Sandalwood also seems to be coming forward as well while the florals seem to have all ran away. This is a darker scent now. Wow the Sandalwood is making this so nice!
Overall: A well blended scent with a lovely sandalwood scent with at some sniffs the tiniest tinge of white florals to the back.
For me personally I never would have picked this scent since many of the listed notes don't like me at all. I must say its not as masculine as I would have first thought and smells really nice on the dry down. Though its not me I have to say this is one of those scents that reminds me sometimes I have to just give in and try something new even if I think the notes will do horrors to me. This so much nicer then I ever would have thought!!

In the Bottle: This smells strangely masculine and sweet at the same time. This has the scent of leather mixed with the richness of the red wine and a sweet scent that reminds me of dragons blood
On wet: This is a light masculine scent to me. It has the depth of incense, touch or leather and a slight sweetness that is a nice touch. As it sits I get the ambergris and I am not sure what in the description is "wet ozone" but I can sense that a bit to the back
Drydown: This is a sexy, deep, slightly sweet, sense. This is perfect for those of you who adore the incensy blends that Beth can blend so well. This also would work well for guys as well. I can't wait to try it on my new husband!!
