Scent Stories 2

MiN New York Scent Stories Volume 1, part 2: Magic Circus, Old School Bench, Barrel, Onsen and Dune Road

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

I promised Portia that I would come back with my brief impressions of the rest of the line and here they are! Santa Subita is a powerful patchouli. It focuses on the balmy, resinous aspects with a light camphorous note.

Safran Nobile

Technique Indiscrete Safran Nobile: Fresh Nostalgia

Saffron is a magical spice. The magic starts from the color of the golden red threads, the warmest, richest hue of red in nature. It continues to enchant me with the way it is produced, wasting millions of delicate purple

L’Anarchiste: order in chaos

L’Anarchiste is a rather recent release from the historical house of Caron. The name of this fragrance has always baffled me.  How can a perfume offer itself to be related to a sociopolitical theory which has several negative connotations? First of all how
