Possets 2018 Valentines Retour G-Li Leftovers
Two leathers, sandalwood, an uncharacteristically sweet oude, and black seed. It's strong, aromatic, spicy.
Girl With The Floral Crown
Floral Hugely floral, deeply musky gardenias flashing with tuberoses in a background of modern and delightful cashmere musk. A lovely lovely fragrance which is playful as well as feminine to the max. Not recommended for work but highly recommended for love.
Oakmoss and fougere, with San Salvadorian vetivert, the smallest amount of Siberian Birch, a very small drop of the famous Possets lavender. Deep and sophisticated, this is what you would wear to seduce a duke, and a jaded duke at that. A drop of black walnut essence seals the deal.
Perhaps the most famous character in the Arthur tale, Guinevere is the soft, beautiful, insinuating presence which never has to shout to command attention. I think of this fragrance as transparent, youthful, a little spoiled, and very sexy indeed. It is the lightest of all the Possets' Dreams of Avalons. It is just ravishing and remains discrete. Crystalline and yet warming, sandalwood is the precious main component of the blend.
Harold & Edith
Dark oakmoss from the forests of England, the scent of the iris rushes from where they had lain the night before, vetiver offered to a pagan god for the safe return of the beloved, all dry and mournful as a lost love.
Very sticky very gooey chocolate and vanilla and nougat and butter and the thinnest skin of crystallized sugar which crunches when you bit into it, an off limits mish mash of doctor disapproved goodies.
Spicy and going past the redline, Heated Heart smells like it's so full of passion it's going to explode. Very sexy. Unisex and mouthwatering, but not candy-like. Very come hither. Though this is a spicy scent, it should not cause irritation on your skin. If it does, stop using it but I think it will be just fine for all but the most sensitive perfume lovers. Foody, gourmand, spicy.
Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw
Heather of the moors and the lavender of English nobility, a drop of wildness in a perfect oude reminiscent of Gypsy heritage and Catherine and Heathcliff come alive again.
Heather and Hell
Heather is the unexpected top note in this wild oriental! Yes, this is all deep thumping resins being made to dance madly a wild cross between the skirling bagpipes and drums of the Highlands, and the pipes and drums of the Levant. Very perfumy, very floral, very long lasting and the sort of thing which you have to say was made for each other.
Helen and Paris
The mad intersection between succulent fruits and sticky resins, melon and nag champa, sandalwood and citrus and cedar.
Henry VIII and Anne of Cleves
Red and green musks, sage, apples.
Henry VIII and Catherine Howard
Red musk, bitter galbanum, sweet honey, myrrh,creamy custard.
Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon
Red musk, smoky and greenish carnation, yellow saffron, incense, and a bit of rioja grape. Strong and pure and deep and delightfully satisfying, it's my portrait of their happy beginnings.
Henry VIII and Catherine Parr
Catherine Parr's fragrance is Red musk, neroli (for her many marriages), sandalwood, and linen.
Henry VIII and Jane Seymour
Red musk makes a soft bed for the most pure hawthorne, golden honey, fine fat vanilla, and sweetest amber.
Hylas and the Nymphs
The wondrous fragrance of pooled water, lush vegetation, and sneaking scent of sex. If you can think of fresh and sexy, this is Hylas and the nymphs. Green and musky, aquatic and sassy.
Clove and sandalwood, Nubian Musk and tabac. A beautiful smooth perfume with some lovely snap. Clove is used as a uniting force here. There is also a green component to this blend which keeps it from becoming too extreme.
Isabella of France
Lovely smokey seductive Oude from Arabia starts out, with a goodly shot of galbanum, at this point it's sharp aggressive and beautiful. An insertion of Sicilian lemon, a float of black Tellicherry peppercorn.
Very animalic skin musk, a strong whiff of loam, darkest earthy vetiver from Haiti, crushed black fig.
Cream, cardamom, clove, pear, lemon, and Balm of Gilead.
JFK and Jackie
A snap of the finest leather, a bit of oakmoss, combined with tabac blonde essence, a whiff of tea, and the warmth of silk.
Joan of Arc
Churchy incense, smoke from a campfire, a bit of wood (pre shadowing her fiery end).
Roses, the old fashioned and wildly flagrant pink and red/white striped kind, combined with a jolt of what I call "Ivory" musk (it's like a white musk but much nicer with more character), galbanum to keep a bitterness in the mix like love gone awry and add a clean edge to it all as if tears had washed away the traces of touch.
Dark Haitian vetiver and cardamom form the basis for the rest of the structure, of course there is a good lot of "white" sandalwood to perk things up, lots of tears of frankincense smooths it out, and there is a very light waft of Madagascar vanilla which goes a long with a goodly portion of rosewood.
A woodsy, earthy and blend with real staying power and an easy charm. This is a manly fragrance with a great many natural ingredients. Give it a friendly shake before applying as the contents may settle.
Raspberry and the most glorious dark Belgian chocolate ever. The best in the candy tin, the Mona Lisa of candy. Foody.
Lady Caroline Lamb
Rue, some artemisia to that, a white leafed plant with a background of vanilla to its heavily herbal key notes, I finish it all off with a thick coat of frankincense, and a beautiful amber.
The famous chocolate from Aztec lands, combined with sweetbriar-like almost apple and earthy smoke scent, and a touch of cumin.
The paragon of animal magnetism, Lancelot includes the cockiness of a spice based scent with the suavity of magic. Try it.
In this blend, the famous lavender of Possets is put with a kiss of its cousin, mint. The combination is exhilarating and yet calming at the same time.
Lily Barth & Lawrence Sheldon
Rich myrrh and vetiver are woven through with Indian incense and a flash of camphor to provide the right bite, angelica for uprightness, and opoponax for the base. Too fabulous on one hand, so envied on the other. A cool resin with a deep heart.
Back again, the almost indescribable Liquid Music takes citrus to the limit and makes something better out of the ingredients in here. Grapefruit, spice and Black Musk make appearances and combine into a thrill. This stuff is so refreshing, it's like taking a bath without water. Perfumy.
