Hey Hey Perfume Junkies,
OK I’m adding a THUNKED section here too. It’s becoming an APJ obsession and I love the idea of us using our fragrances and hoiking the vial, decant or bottle. Thunk is the sound of an empty hitting the bin so you must empty it for the thunk to count.
Anything worthy of comment, either good or bad, that’s passed under my nose through the week will get a short write up. If I think something is terrible, shamefully lazy, greedy or stupid and you should know about it, it will be said. As always YMMV.
I’d love it if you get involved: agree, respectfully disagree, have any thought-out opinion and want to share, do so in the comments below. The point is starting a conversation.
New Sniffs + Thunked: 17.1.2019
In The Woods by Cult of Scent
Not strictly speaking a new sniff but I am loving rediscovering its spiced and minty cedar surrounded by the cool unburnt resins of incense and citrus. I had forgotten how terrific this is. MMMMM
Tom Ford Lost Cherry
OMG! I’m embarrassed by how much I freaking LOVE this. Sour Cherry Cheesecake sprinkled with almonds and arriving in new Tupperware! They’ve done it without any of that freaky saccharine back taste too. This shit is my jam.
Should be a Guerlain. If they could remember how to make fine fragrance.
Now I want it BADLY!!
Colorado by DSH Perfumes
Dawn has created a thing of beauty, eye rollingly good. Warm, sweet and thick, luscious. Resinous woods, maple syrup, clean smelling beeswax and the cold fluffy char smell of a dead fires ashes.
Only 50 signed bottles made in conjunction with American Perfumer.
Vanille Fleur by Micallef
It’s an odd bird. Vanilla and roses, with a dash of fruitiness. You’d think it would be luscious and dewy but it isn’t. Dry, desiccated coconutty vanilla with subtle fruity rose thread running through. Quite a surprise.
Ma Bête by Eris Parfums
Ma Bête is a LOT raunchier at heftier levels, the resins and something bed heady are SO GOOD! All overlaying a very pretty, vintage feeling, aldehydic floral. Now I really want a bottle.
Midnight Spirit by Olibere Paris
Thunked a 2ml spray sample. OMG! I am a sillage bomb! Citrus (with that ultra sweet grapefruit tartness), booze, zingy pink pepper and greenery with a very nice dry grass heart and smoky amber woods base
Have you tried any of these? How did they work for you?
