  1. I adore this scent! The first time I smelled it I was a little taken aback, it was kinda unsettling. The moss and musk are both pretty strong you get a very musty/dusty vibe. It’s a very powdery heavy old fashioned floral. Smells like vintage perfume spritzed on dried flowers pressed inside a dusty old book. If you are a vintage/floral/powder fan you must try this one!

  2. Warm, hazy, and powdery, very much like a mainstream perfume. It’s difficult to pick out the individual notes; the sweet, gourmand base mainly consists of almond and vanilla, with the heavy florals of jasmine and tuberose at the forefront as it opens, soft instead of narcotic, on a backdrop of powdery, slightly spicy iris. Quite a bit of inky oakmoss is apparent in the musky drydown, tempering the cloying sweetness a little, but not enough.
