Note: I received this while I was down & out with the Coves (covid) so my review might be a bit off & I will add to it when I am not morphing into a blobfish.

 

This is the most amazing thing I’ve smelled. O.K. maybe I’m wrong, my memory is terrible, but let’s just say that the way it smells right now? I’d trade almost my whole BPAL collection for just this one. I’ve worn it for two days & it skyrocketed to my top 5, then top 3. It’s tough to say if I’d trade my other two favs for it… we’ll see after I can smell again (properly… I can still smell things).

 

My brain is fog so I can only give you impressions because I can’t think of what I want to compare it to. But that sugar spiked clove is like the warmth of a dark, gourmet hot cocoa. When I first put it on I thought it had a cocoa note, but it’s the clove with sugar. It gets so warm & perfect as it dries. The amber is there too, but not powdery. No, it gives it that smooth stability. I think it also keeps it from morphing much while stopping it from imitating a gourmet scent. It starts as this sugary waft of spicy delight & morphs to the warmth of dark chocolate, then settles into an almost lavish sweetness that isn’t any kind of food but makes you think about the idea of it. Like a montage of decadence in dimly lit rooms. 
 

tl;DR: I’ll be saving up to buy more if this is the way it really smells after I get over the plague. It’s as perfect as a Milky Way.

This is a gorgeous amber blend. It reminds me a lot of the Black Amber & Sugarcane duet, except I think I like it even better. :heart: This amber is deep, dark, velvety, almost a little musky, and the sugared clove is this sparkly sheen of spicy-sweetness. Unrested and unaged, the throw and longevity aren't that strong, but ambers always age well (and even if it stays as a sexy skin scent, I'm fine with it!). I might have to pick up a second bottle so I can slather with abandon. If you fell in love with Black Amber & Sugarcane or wanted to try it, and you also like clove, I definitely recommend this!

Gorgeous black amber and a whiff of the same clove that you get in the Smiling Spider.

If the Smiling Spider is ALL CLOVE, smoky and scorched and in your face, the amber here is more of a clove-infused amber.

Gorgeous.

 

Low throw, skin scent, but I am going to roll around in this. And agree that this will age beautifully.
