Then said Jafnhárr: It was many ages before the earth was shaped that the Mist-World was made; and midmost within it lies the well that is called Hvergelmir, from which spring the rivers called Svöl, Gunnthrá, Fjörm, Fimbulthul, Slídr and Hríd, Sylgr and Ylgr, Víd, Leiptr; Gjöll is hard by Hel-gates.

The first vision, obfuscated by fog sprung from Hvergelmir: a world within dream, formed of nebulous possibility. Thin strands of white resin-smoke, star jasmine, and white violet.

This is a very pleasant, light incensey scent that reads primarily as a soft violet. It's not as lush as in Sybaris, per se, and definitely not as 'chewy' as Fleurette's Purple Snails, which was a robust, unfurling PURPLE violet.

On the skin it's sweet, gentle violets, mixed with maybe a wisp of light sandalwood. The star jasmine I guess reads as a hint of misty floral, but this is not a jasmine-forward blend at all. It's mostly a slightly dewy absolutely beautiful violet, and I must get tons of it. Light overall throw, but it's delicious.

I just got this out of the mail so the bottle is freezing but I had to try it instantly. I have had mixed results from violets so this wasn't the wisest decision, but as I'm a heathen i had to nab at least a couple from this collection. I was hoping this would be more like Morgause than other, candy-smelling violet scents and at least right now, I was right! But where Morgause is deep and sorceress-y on me, this one is pale (still sorceress-y though). There's something slightly unsettled about the way the resins and violet mix, but that, I'll assume optimistically, is due to it being fresh out of the mailbox. I think this is one of the only times violet has ever smelled like a flower on me and not like violet-scented candy.

 

I'll edit this with a more thorough review later, but i had to get that out there for other violet-worriers.

Wispy jasmine and violet. And something else. So torn. I love me some violet, but hate the jasmine although its softer and less cat-pee like than other jasmines. Will have to retest again. Low throw and wear length.

Gentle, pretty, soft.  I'm not sure the incense I'm smelling is sandalwood.  It smells like maybe... opium?  Not sure.  Generally, I prefer a bit more oomph to my scents, but for those looking for a delicate floral, this is lovely.  I'll have to keep an eye out for "star jasmine."  It's obviously different from the more common, powerful stuff.  :smile:
