This smells like a honest to god clove cigarette. You know the type. Djarnums, before we had that weird law that says no tobacco with additives. Clove, smoky chewy tobacco, and more clove.

Good throw and wear length.

Very strong scent. Smells of christmas time pinecones potpourri. But very very clove. Smells the same on the skin. Long throw. If you love cloves or clove cigarette it's a must grab. Other scents it reminds me of is Erika Klash and Mr Nancy.

I can't compare this to the scent of clove cigarettes, but I will say that it is a clove-dominant scent with a bit of a cool aspect in the background, and it is goth af. There is no sweet or dank tobacco note here... it's more like a clove incense.

 

I tested this against Sweet Clove SN, and the latter was warmer and stronger than this scent.

 

Since it didn't have lots of throw when I tested it, I decided to do a full day wear test by slathering it along the length of both of my forearms. Even then, I could not smell it over my boyfriend's Jareth (and he only used three dabs). So it's definitely one that needs to be slathered (at least in a dry climate) and absorbed into some clothes.

 

If you love clove, you need this. My decant will not be enough. :wub2:

Disappointed. I think I was wanting more of an atmospheric of clove cigerettes. The leather jacket, the clove, some smoke and maybe *something* evocative of the time period. Will restest this today but I just amped clove and I do not need SN clove. If my retest after a weeks rest changes my mind I will edit.

This smells exactly like a clove cigarette.

 

When I was 20, I went to a lot of goth clubs and events and took to smoking these until they got banned. Sweet strong clove, a hint of black paper and an undercurrent of tobacco. Clove is the Star here and it is dangerously close to clove single note. Close, but not exact.

 

If you were ever a goth kid and want to relive the scent of clove cigarettes in the broody air while wearing black and lots of hair gel, this is your scent.
