Jil Sander Man Pure 1981: too good to be forgotten

Magnetic Scent samples

Tindrer: smells like Joga (and Magnetic Scent collection quick sniff)

With niche perfume market booming it is hard to keep up with new releases and sometimes when I do try to keep up I often find myself wondering if it is really worth the trouble. Magnetic Scent is a new house

Slumberhouse Vikt, Sove, Grev, Jeke, Pear+Olive, Iska

Slumberhouse samples part 2 and the beginning of a beautiful friendship

Picking this up right where I left it… Vikt is a smoky and slightly animalic scent. It is smoky enough to make you think that this is a vetiver scent. A fresh cut wood note starts poking through the smokiness

Pomegranate Noir: the joy of blind sniffing revisited
