  1. This is one of my favorites from Alkemia. It honestly smells kinda like an indie version of Angel. It’s for sure a sexy gourmand labdanum bomb, so don’t slather until you know you love it. It’s great for fall and winter, a little heavy for summer, would smell great on any gender. Dark, sweet, fruity, resinous.

  2. This scent has a LOT going on, and somehow it all just works. A little resinous, a little smoky, a little spicy, a little sweet, a little gourmand, a little atmospheric. Really sexy.

  3. Like Carmen 7, this is a gorgeous caramelized pear gourmand. This one has a bit of spice and a lot of darker notes that cut down on the sweetness and make it more sexy. I didn’t get any incense at all from it. Between the two I’d say Carmen is more gourmand and this is less gourmand, more atmospheric/dark.

  4. This is an interesting dark and dirty, yet super sweet scent. It’s chaotic and debaucherous smelling. The combo of the resinous woody smells with the sticky sweet candy smells makes this very indulgent smelling, and maybe slightly overripe (but I’m kinda into that).
