Possets Spring Retour #-D Leftovers
3 1/2 Horsemen of the Apocolypse
Bacon and leather.
The darkest of all black musks, a gleaming DRY smokey vanilla, a very light dusting of precious jasmine, finally a light version of night blooming cereus and a wild incense which is like the lovechild of nag champa, high and dark. A deep sexual Tantric fragrance.
3336 Reservoir Road
Cool green tree lined streets, a whiff of tea being served in some successful man's drawing room, a bit of class laden perfume worn by the ladies at tea, and the far away scent of labdanum thrown in for good measure.
A Lady In Her Own Right
Neroli with a light kiss of beeswax, and sandalwood to round out things. A drop of myrtle, and a white musk backdrop.
The lightest of spring flowers, the reticulated iris combined with a green hay like grass.
A base of incense - a lighter Chinese blend rather than a richer Indian sort of incense. Combined with cardamom, hawthorn, tagates and a bit of thyme.
White vanilla, Australian apricot and a layer of honey musk.
Neroil, linden blossom, have turned up on an unexpected bed of ylang-ylang.
Clove, the smoothness of an exquisite silvered musk, and a drop of Mysore sandalwood, inculcated with a strong infusion of incense.
Hawthorne and black musk combined with woody coconut (!) and an overlay of oude.
Blue musk, very sweet jasmine, a hint of anise recalls a seed mixture, and a bed of black musk keeps it all together.
Ara the Altar
Black tarry musk and fragrant burnt oude smoke.
perfumy Madagascar vanilla, smooth Arabian Amber, a hint of bamboo citrus (a very light but present accord).
Apricot, and smoky Tahitian Vanilla (aged to perfection). A very small amount of black tea, and an edge of mahogany essence.
Ethereal musks are the opposite of earthy patchoulis and vetivers...if the two were to collide, what would happen? The best of both worlds if done in the proper proportions.
Green scent, chlorophyll and outdoorsy leafy accords BUT since the real star is actually red I thought a bit of red fruit would go nicely here to leaven out the greeness and bring it all back into perspective.
Icy edge of violet and mint, a note of hydrangea and a small small amount of sage makes this a lovely combination.
African Musk, Egyptian Musk, and Red Musk, Black cumin and spikenard.
Chloris the Goddess of Flowers
Lilacs, lily of the valley, rose, violet and several flowers which are part of my hedge at home (viburnum being one of them).
Strong sage tea is smoothed by a peachy addition, a bit of sugar evens out the mix.
The prettiest of all jasmines shines with a candy-like background pushing it forward. Feminine, floral, sweet and irresistible.
Baby powder, hawthorn, a bit of lemon cake, and a whiff of musk (skin musk) and you will probably find this rollicking vernal blend irresistible.
Nectarine, grey musk mimics a rainy day, a spark of cardamom, and a tiny bit of lime, a drop of parsley gives everything a delightfully fresh edge. Really like a rainy day in April filled with daffodils and tulips (it is) and you are thinking about dusting off that old painting set and capturing the light on the weeping cherry trees. Ravishing.
100% Natural Vetiver is subtle here, a play of patchouli (which has been aged for about 3 plus years in my studio) and a host of interesting and enticing natural ingredients which I think you will enjoy smelling. Perfumy, citrus.
Saffron, strong and pretty "grey" musk that I make up as a Possets special is featured as a backup to the saffron, the crocus scent has a good shot of greeness.
Citrus and lily of the valley.
Abstract purple lilac essence, grapefruit (pink only) with an extra does of the zest. A drop of Hidecote lavender.
Essence of dandelion mixes with the remnants of the chill lingering in the vernal air (with a nod to a more minty sort of zestiness), a kiss of lemon, a small amount of ambient floral fragrance.
Crystalline musk, a very sharp musk which has no lyrical name, gray musk, and a very modern sort of edgy musk. Top all of this off with a fragrance which reminds me of stone and water on stone.
A man made ambergris combined with pink grapefruit and a l small amount of white musk and an elegant intrusion of saffron. Musky and resinous. Downright dangerous.
Toffee, butterscotch, cream, butter, and a tidal wave of vanilla.
A very dry and unusual green vanilla, a touch of nectar, and a bit of smoke from a fragrant wood fire blend perfectly with the lovely citrus paradisii oil.
Draco the Dragon
Fine Chinese tea and spicewood, a small amount of key lime zest, a bit of lemon pulp.
