Shoggoth

Recommended Posts

An amorphous, radiant, incandescent scent. Ever changing, protoplasmic and primordial: white amber, green coconut meat, iris, palmarosa, Chinese peony, lime, water lily, snowdrop, muguet, lemongrass, osmanthus, wisteria, glassy musk, and hinoki.

 

Starts strong with a blast of crystallized coconut, lime, and amber! A strange, citrusy, fuzzy scent. Reminds me of the wet stage of Fake News.

In the imp: A very gentle lemon drop scent. By "gentle," I mean that the lemon isn't overly tart, but it's also not super sugary. 

 

On my skin:

 

Wet, the sweet citrus continues, except now I can pick out that it's lime. I can also pick out peony, water lily, and wisteria. As it dries, some of the coconut meat comes out, and I wonder if that creaminess is what's contributing to my impression of this as a "soft" citrus candy scent. Given time to develop on my skin, the amber also surfaces. The resin isn't bad, but its smell is somewhat incongruous with the mostly foody vibe Shoggoth has had so far. 

 

Approximately an hour after application, the amber strengthens to become the main note, so it's an amber base wrapped in coconut lime. And I'm not really sure about this. On the one hand, while I like both amber and coconut-lime, I am not certain these are two great tastes that taste great together. On the other, the amber is a super great fixative on me; any other coconut-lime blend would have disappeared on me by now. 

 

I'll probably end up swapping this -- it's just too different for me to see myself using it regularly -- but I'm glad I got to try it.
