  1. This is a beautiful gourmand Turkish Delight inspired scent, it’s powdery, deep and complex. Multiple layers of gourmand goodness unfolding like the petals of a rose. The silage is great and it lasts all day on my skin.

  2. Sweet and sharp at once, Haunted & Bewitched opens with peppery florals and mild ambers on a caramelic base, with a whisper of something citrusy on top. Heavier on the tea as it dries down, it bears a passing resemblance to Madam Pearl at this stage. The late dominance of rose, ambrette, and vanilla ruins the likeness by giving the scent a distinct mustiness, swallowing the short-lived star jasmine note and tipping the scent into cloying. Saccharine but somehow not as gourmand as expected.

  3. This smells like a Victorian afternoon tea, held in a rose garden and serving vanilla cupcake and like almond biscuits. Upfront is friendly, gourmand notes. The jasmine arrives in the dry down.

    To me, this would make the wearer seem approproachble. Excellent longevity in ultime.

  4. Patchouli can be okay on me sometimes, and other times it can cause an allergic reaction in my breathing. Also it sometimes reads as mold to me, or drowns out everything else. No such troubles occur with this perfume.

    It’s so light, almost gauzy if a perfume can be described that way? Like candied flowers, in a good way. I definitely smell the candy-rose smell of the Turkish delight. If this is indeed a haunting, it’s a sweet ghost who really wants to romance the person they’re haunting, like in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir.

    Unlike some perfumes with bourbon, I can’t actually detect a specific boozy note, and this perfume is so delicate that I don’t think it would overwhelm me even if I could pick it out.
