Kitsune-Tsuki

Recommended Posts

Kitsune-Tsuki are malevolent Japanese spirits, akin to western werebeasts: women are possessed by the spirits of foxes, who compel them to perform acts of wickedness and mischief. Asian plum, orchid, daffodil, jasmine and white musk.

 

First off the daffodil is at the top. After a fairly short time of 15 minutes plum has taken over. At this point it smells like plum candy gilded with jasmine. I would totally eat one of those but the scent just isn't me.

Wet: Hellllooooo plum! Plummy gummy plum is front and center, blocking the audience’s view of the rest of the notes.

 

Drydown: The plum is here to stay, but it’s stepped back a bit, so as not to hog all the spotlight. A touch of light musk and a hint of warm jasmine are just noticeable beneath the purple fruit.

 

Dry: Softer and more well-rounded. The plum is brighter now, more tart than sticky. The flowers are muddled together, smelling warm like sunshine and soft like cotton; they temper the plum’s sweetness just enough without taking over. The overall effect is lightweight, feminine, flirty, and fresh.

In the imp: sweet fruity-floral.

 

Wet: at first I can only smell daffodil and loud, loud jasmine, which my skin tends to amp. Then something sweeter comes out, but I don't identify it as plum really.

 

Dry: this smells like a more floral, less complex version of Titania on me. - with a good deal of jasmine. Drydown is identical to Titania after a couple of hours once the jasmine is gone.

 

Throw: strong as first, but dies down after a couple of hours.

 

I like this, it's sweet and fruity and floral and pretty. But I have a bottle of Titania, which is very similar and which I like better, so I'll pass on a larger format.

Imp: clean, strong floral, plum, classic oriental perfume

Wet: same

Dry: very floral, My skin starts to amp the jasmine with light musk in the background. It definitely smells like spring, green, almost innocent. After 15 min the plum and daffodil are finally starting to push through the jasmine. It is nice but not for me.

Very fresh and juicy! Almost zesty. Blended very well, I find it hard to take apart the notes in this.

On my skin it doesn't morph much, only on drydown what I think is the plum gets bit stronger, other than that it's all there.

Plum can be overwhelming for me, but I actually wouldn't have guessed this was plum till I read the description. This is a fruity floral as opposed to a floraly fruit. The plum is subtle and a bit juicy, but delicate - the orchid is the most distinct of the florals, but that's reaching because overall it is a lovely blend - perfect for late spring and early summer, not heady, but still distinctly white/purple flowers.

Origin: Frimp from the Lab

 

Initial Thoughts: Originally when I went exploring through the Lab's catalog as a newbie, I probably backed off because of either the plum or the musk. I have since learned that plum can be very good and that *white* musk does not amp horribly on me. So let's seize what the fates have dumped into my lap.

 

In the Vial: Musk and light, airy florals. I'm not sure any one is standing out. At this point the plum is adding a richness, but not necessarily a lot of fruit.

 

Wet: Mostly daffodil & orchid at first. Sweetly airily floral.

 

Drydown: The plum emerges, surrounded by the florals. The musk is behaving nicely and playing backup rather than center stage.

 

Verdict: I think I like this quite a bit. Definitely hanging onto the imp and maybe there's a bottle in my future.

shriekingviolet has a really good review that I agree with. Clean, floral, fruity. Something to wear on a brisk Spring day. It definitely smells happy. And surprisingly, it does evoke the smell of Japanese candies or something Asian. Kinda reminds me of the crappy Hello Kitty gum when I was 5. This is fun, I'm glad I tried it.

Praying the jasmine doesn't take over as the plum is DIVINE in the imp.

 

Wet, it's still plum with some daffodil and orchid. The jasmine is starting to come through but so far it's manageable.

 

This is so pretty. Plummy floral and actually kinda sexy - like Bordello with and Asian kick.

 

This is super nice. I'll keep my imp and see how often I wear it in case I need to upgrade to a bottle.

For me, in the imp and wet on the skin, this is a HEAVY heady jasmine. As it dries down, the daffodil comes to play - which I love as daffodil is not a common note for me to smell. I also get a bit of the orchid. As it dries down further, that beautiful plum is there, juicy and dark and ripe. Kind of like drinking plum wine in a flower garden. This one is really beautiful!

I really dig this one. It's a cheerful plum scent with an edge of jasmine. I get the fruit first and then the soft florals. It really feels like sitting down for a nice garden picnic and enjoying some perfectly ripe plums. It's pretty close to the skin for me, but it does last a pretty long while. I enjoy this quite a bit.

In the imp: The floral notes are the most prominent notes in the imp, with the daffodil being the one that stands out the most to me. Then I get the musk. I'm only getting a bit of the plum in the background.

 

Wet: The white and yellow floral notes are the first to leap out at me, but then the plum rushes in. I'm getting more of it on my skin than I did in the imp. It is quite sweet and threatens to overtake the floral notes.

 

Dry: The sweet plum note wafts over the scent of the musky florals. I'm surprised that the daffodil and orchid are discernible, given that jasmine generally likes to flaunt its presence and stomp all over other notes.

 

Verdict: I was looking forward to the daffodil note, and I'm glad it is a main player here, but alas, there's just too much plum in this one for me to enjoy it.

In the imp and right after applying: super sweet plum! The floral notes take over as it dries down -- I mostly get jasmine and a more sharp and stereotypically "perfumey" floral (the daffodil?). I can't pick out the white musk at any stage. This could be a great spring/summer scent, especially if sweeter florals are your thing, but it's a little too much for me.

Sweet, syrupy floral straight on. I got plumeria but none is listed in the notes and I wonder if it is just the combination of florals. As it dries it is easier the distinguish them, the humid orchid stands out the most on me, with a little heady jasmine and sweet daffodil underneath. The plum is quite faint on me, just adding a sweet juiciness. The white musk is light and clean, giving a breezy vibe to the whole thing.
