Devil’s Dandy

Brand: Alkemia

Scent Description: A diabolically seductive blend of elegant dark leathers, wild black currants and forest blackberries soaked in blood-red merlot wine, mahogany wood, and brooding musk with a whiff of carnal patchouli and the faintest whisper of brimstone.

“The Devil’s most devilish when respectable.”

— Elizabeth Barrett Browning

  1. This was sweet, gooey, gourmand chocolate PATCHOULI. Very much not my thing. I also got really true-to-life red wine (but of a sort that leans sweet). The patchouli here is a little bit almost spicy? And I think this might be what people are referring to as “chewy” patchouli, I’m not sure how else to put it.

    This is whole continents from being my thing, but for people who like these kinds of scents it was a very cohesive scent concept, and well-executed. Not even gonna try it again, because there is no amount of settling that will make me like smelling like a super gourmand chocolate-wine-patchouli.

  2. Such an excellent dark berry wine/leather scent with a little bit of greenery. It’s fresher and lighter than I had anticipated.

  3. Holy leather! This smells like a leather vest that somebody spilled wine all over. After dull dry down, the berries really come out and add a strong fruitiness. It has an almost damp scent, like an old cellar. If you enjoy fruity leather with some alcohol, you might like this.

  4. This isn’t very strong on my skin, but it lasts a really long time. The leather note in this is really intense when mixed with all the berries. The black currant is very sharp and tangy compared to the wine and blackberry notes which are a lot smoother. The wood, patchouli, and musk play around in the background. This whole blend is very intense. Not a work scent!
