Artificier

Recommended Posts

Artificer smells like someone works with metal and lubricant, and just smells like a metallurgist. You know, someone that can fix your card, craft your sword, and also throw in that nice Victorian scrollwork while you're thinking about it. It's a nice gender neutral metallic smell. Good throw and wear length.

This is really really nice. Metal scents have generally not been my thing, but this metal isnt too cold or screechy on my skin. I think there's a good dose of blue musk, and just a hint of lubricant.

This is not precisely peppermint but it's something mint-adjacent. I do get the lab's metal note and it turns this into a cologne. This reminds me of Odic Force, except this scent is blue and white. I don't get soap from this one like I do from many ozone scents.

This pairs well with gnome.

Artificier (my imp has an extra i) definitely smells like it would be right at home in the Steamworks collection, somewhere between Galvanic Goggles and Robotic Scarab.  It's bright, unisex, not specifically metallic on me.  There is probably some ozone in here.  I like it.  No throw, which is typical for my skin, and wear length is only average or a little less on me.

"Psionicist, but make it steampunk." Or, possibly, "Steampunk, but make it blue glass instead of opaque brass." Or maybe "Perfume, but not for humans; this is blended for and by sentient robots who want to smell like pretty metals and gears."

 

This has a steampunk vibe, but in a completely new olfactory colorway. When wet I get a clear viscous motor oil, a glassine metal musk, ozone, and blue light. (This artificer makes elegant ballroom jewelry that hides clockwork spy instruments or tiny mechanical poison dart throwers.) It has a light but steady throw and doesn't seem to morph, though the oil loses its chemical edge and becomes more of a watery dew. It continues to smell blue and metallic, but never sharp or cold.

Wet, this has a great machine oil note and general steampunk vibe. As it dries, though, the blue musk takes over on my skin and drowns out the other notes, leaving me with a vaguely sawdusty clean scent. Darn skin chemistry.

I really love how many of the new RPG scents represent the classes so well. The minute you open the vial, it's steampunk genius, sparks, gears, and a fine metal oil. It excited the brain!

 

Wet I get exactly what I hoped for from this scent. I smell like a busy gnome in the middle of a metallurgy project with a hint of aquatic in the background.

 

On the dry down this is a bit more feminine on me than unisex. It's softer than I expected and still lovely. The oil tames down but never too much. This lasts for several hours with a low throw. I want to layer this with Gnome and maybe Good. I think they'd play really nicely together.

Artificier features a light eucalyptus note, perhaps eucalyptus leaf or blossom (which has been in a few Lab blends relatively recently), as well as some cologne-y metallic component. The eucalyptus starts off stronger, but ends up calming down over time without fading, while the metallic note gains strength over time, smelling sharp but not intolerably so. A glassy note emerges later in wear, which I believe is a musk.

 

This went better on me than I had anticipated. Although I am unlikely to reach for something predominantly metallic, I will probably hang on to my imp for trying out various RPG layering combos. :)
