Possets Spring Retour E-O Leftovers
The smell of the inside of the Easter Basket combined with what happens when you open the windows on a beautiful beautiful day. Mmmmm, that scent greets you only once a year.
Chlorophyll combined with menthol, and a bit of eucalyptus, an ivy essence, a tiny amount of lime is put in for good measure.
A Japanese incense, a small amount of vetiver, a fine veil of violet leaf and rock rose.
A bit of mint and a bit of water as it melts away. This one is still pretty wintery but it's starting to be a warm watery scent rather than an icy cold one. Unisex, semi-sweet, watery, refreshing. Minty, dry, herbal.
Fornax, The Furnace Of Love
A strong and almost electric almond, cinnamon, and a really boozy vanilla, a hard shot of musk finishes it off. Very sexy, great for a date night which stretches into a much longer time frame.
A small amount of the finest leather, a tiny bit of tea, a whiff of a basic chypre note.
3 ambers (one honeyed, one dry, and one very sweet and dripping golden).
100% Natural Perfumy bergamot is combined with glorious rosa damecina trigintepetala (Damask rose), and a hint of rare Australian sandalwood (which is not endangered) and you have pure magic from pure sources.
The bite and sniff of ginger (the best quality) combines with the cold of flitting winter and a kiss of oncoming spring.
Beautiful big fluffy peony scent is married with the flakiest and most tender of pie smells. It's like you walked into some divine Hoosier kitchen and smelled the scents floating in from an open window. Lovely.
Violet which has been discovered blooming at almost the right time of year in a Southern exposure and brought indoors to stay in a vase. To contrast, the scent of new mown hay insinuates itself into the mix to remind you that 6 months from now you will be admiring the golden bounty of summer. The combination is heady but secret, like the hope for real warmth in the face of ice ice ice.
Bitter almonds, cucumber and a very woody vanilla go hand and hand with patchouli. Resinous and foody at the same time.
Libra the Balance
The most sophisticated of rose essences and the most animalic of patchoulis. There is a drop of sandalwood and a tiny bit of lemon for zest.
Grapefruit with counterpoints of sage and cedar.
White Amber, white oude, white (sharp) musk, a small small amount of a water accord, a tobacco flower background, a small amount of silk fragrance. It's really a beauty.
Madame Eglantine The Prioress
Honeysuckle and lilac with a kiss of incense and a float of citrus. Shy and beautiful.
Maharani of Kuch-Bahar
The purest of classic thick patchouli, a good dose of blood orange from Sicily, a light brush of incense, thick dark tamarind from India.
The freshness of a new spring grass with fern, a hint of spearmint, a small tot of bitter galbanum and a bit of one of the coldest African Musks I have ever used.
The essence of bubblegum combined with serious sugar (as in "give me some sugar"), add in sticky sweet vanilla bean syrup, a drop of butterscotch.
A mildly spicy but totally fresh floral with a whisper of pink phlox is added here to give this blend the mid spring boost of the less watery fragrance we come to associate with the end of April or the beginning of May.
7 different musks and they have combined to become a wondrous cloud surrounding you all day long. White, grey, and a silver musk (not the famous Silver accord), with a foggy sort of sweet and beautiful musk which is called Musk 322, labdanum, and hawthorne.
Peach and carnation, a bit of crystal musk and a very small amount of ginger (just to mellow this out and not to play anything like a major role in it).
Decants=8x35mm vials, Minis=5/8 dram. Full sized bottles are stocked at Possets. As limited edition collections, these scents will be allowed to sell out.
