This is such a unique scent and one of my favorites from Possets for sure! On my skin, this is a musky resinous patchouli scent with a chocolate-like molasses twang. I’ve never smelled anything quite like it. It lasts and lasts on my scent eating skin and I can smell it on my clothes well into the next day. This is a wonderful scent for the Fall and Winter months but honestly, I rock this bad boy all year round. 5 stars.
On my skin, this comes across as a darkened honey scent with an unidentifiable fruit note lurking in the background. Sadly I don’t get any incense smoke from this. I tend to amp honey so that may be why. I feel like after a bit of wear I can smell some kind of nonpowdery amber making itself known. Had the smoke note appeared on me, this would’ve been five stars. I think it all comes down to individual skin chemistry. The end-stage of this perfume oil is all honey on me. 3 stars.
Arrival of the Queen of Sheba
Another favorite. On my skin, the suede in this blend does delicious things to the vanillas and the patchouli. The sandalwood comes across as creamy and non-astringent and the frankincense isn’t overpowering. Sometimes I find that too much frankincense can completely take over but it’s expertly blended in this perfume oil. Sometimes I swear I can smell a hint of rose in this but then it’s gone as quickly as it appears. Anytime I wear this I get compliments from both men and women. This lasts a good 6-8 hours on my scent-eating skin. I feel like this is a scent that can be worn year-round for sure. 5 stars.
Five stars because I love the smell of this in a diffuser or on my clothes. Unfortunately on my skin the sweetbriar completely takes over. Stupid skin chemistry! 5 stars.
Bear Lake Shake – Utah
This smells divine in the vial. Unfortunately, my skin chemistry makes the raspberry note amp and smell artificial and plastic. I’ve had this issue in the past with “berry” notes. The search for a good berry scent that behaves on me continues. This lasted about 3-4 hours on me. 2 stars.
On my skin, this is predominantly carnation. The other notes, especially the fern, elevate this scent in the most beautiful and unusual way. I highly recommend trying this if you’re a carnation fan and are in search of something a bit more complex than Silver Carnations. This lasts between 5 to 6 hours on me. 5 stars.
