Lilith in the Hall of Mirrors: marble and gilded bronze, Venetian mirrors and a drop of poison.



Galerie des Glaces is, like, somebody took all the glass from House of Mirrors and put it all in really over-the-top ornate gilded frames.  i should mention that i adore House of Mirrors (not the HG version, just the perfume oil version).

so,  in the bottle and wet before it really settles into my skin, it is very House of Mirrors~ish, but with something warmer and maybe peach/apricot~ier around the edges. 

 

but after an hour or so it morphs almost exactly into Casmir but without that Chopard back-note. i also like Casmir and have many variants of it, just FYI.

 

based on the notes, i think a lot of folks who might really like this might've skipped it so i wanted to post my thoughts even if they're not so much a review as a babbling stream of comparisons.

 

amber-y (but not powdery), glass, almost ozone but without the high-pitched headacheyness, almost white musk without the detergent-y-ness. 

petrichor in a warm fuzzy sweater, and something peach-ish hovering in there somewhere.

 

such a pretty poison.

House of Mirrors, is that you? It's got the same glass note as House of Mirrors, with a whiff of musk and amber frames. If you liked HoM, give this a whirl. Medium throw and wear length.

I can tell that I like it and that there's amber and something sweet and very "perfume-y", then my allergies kick in and my nose stuffs up and I can't pick out specific notes. I don't have problems with amber or ozone, musk or fruit, so it must be whatever the glass note is that my sinuses don't agree with? What a shame.

I bought this out of curiosity and I’m glad I did! It’s one of the rare amber scents that doesn’t turn to powder on me. This scent is primarily amber on my skin, with a whiff of the “glass” note and a sweet musk on the drydown. There’s also a sweetness that I’m assuming is the “poison” note but I can’t pinpoint just what the scent is. 

 

I know it doesn’t share many notes, but Galerie des Glaces really reminds me

of the perfume my mother wore when I was younger (Dior’s Poison).
