Vial of Holy Water

Recommended Posts

The gleaming, indescribably clean scent of purified, ritually consecrated holy water.

In the vial, this is very light and water-ish. A little cucumbery as some have noted. On my skin it smells like straight up mens cologne, but one that i LIKE! I am so picky when it comes to the cologne my man wears... ironically, as much as I love down and dirty patch on me, I only want clean and fresh smelling things on him so I am hoping that this will work on the boyfriends skin cuz if it does...I won't be able to keep my hands off him :wub3:

In the imp: Green and light and sweet floral. 

 

On my skin:

 

Wet, it's a light, green-golden cologne, sweetened with a touch of floral I can't name. As it dries and develops, it starts to remind me of when the Lab makes a metal note -- like clean steel. It's not quite there, but it's reminiscent. I could tell you this maybe smells like a clean kitchen sink. 

 

It's a very refreshing scent, one I'd describe as unisex, though it's probably not a "me" scent for daily wear.

Rosewater and . . . a hint of jasmine? This is fairly light and inoffensive, but sweeter than expected. I don't think it's my thing, but I'm glad I got to try it. Might be good to layer with something like Paladin.

I get kind of a rosy vibe, too. I agree there is a sweetness to it, hard to pin down, but it does have a sparkly (not champagne-like, more like clear water) floral thing going on. Another winner frimp from the Lab! I get that traditional cologne vibe too, maybe kind of more like Florida Water than a traditional masculine aquatic.

 

*You know what, this is like Liz without the leather! Dark cold floral. Try layering with Bard!

Wet: Vial of Holy Water might be too clean (watery?) for me. I was really hoping the Palo Santo would come through more, as I'm a fan of it as a standalone. Unfortunately, something in this reminds me of working in the embalming room. The cedar makes it dry and the lemon gives it a hint of soapiness that makes me sad as well. I can see why someone would like this, though. As for me, I'm learning I like things a little muskier or resinous.

 

As it dries, the Palo Santo comes through more (yay!) and the halo begins to shine. It's still too sharp / ozonic of a scent for me, and might be irritating my nose ever so slightly, but I think I might like it if my partner wears it?

In the imp: A very light, watery, almost cologne-like scent. Makes me think of white light, and pale greens and blues.

 

Wet: Not cologne-like, but still watery. I almost want to say something green and/or floral? It reminds me of light reflecting off of water.

 

Dry: OK, now it's less watery/green and more cologne-like. There are still some florals hanging around, but it's now more clean-smelling and "perfumey." Still lovely as a light, clean, refreshing scent, though!
