  1. The honey note in this perfume was too sickly sweet for me to bear. I guess I am comparing it to another indie perfumer that I shop from that has ALL the other indie perfumers beat when it comes to honey fragrances because she uses actual honey in the perfume. So I’m comparing real honey to honey fragrance, and I just can’t get down with this one.

  2. I have bought this many times, and I still have a little bit left from my original bottle because I always compare my new iteration to the original. They are all a little different from the original, and the scent only gets better as it ages.
    It opens up with such a lovely warm honey, very realistic, and as soon as it leaves the wet stage the tobacco starts to creep out on my skin.
    The tobacco is very warm and very pipe tobacco smelling, and it is hugely enriched by the honey. They go so perfectly together. The amber serves to help deepen the fragrance even more for a very decadent feel.
    I only use 2 small dabs, because the sillage can be huge.
    Longevity is great. I can smell this the next day if I skip a shower.
    The dry down only gets more beautiful because it feels like the scents meld until they can no longer be picked apart.
    Also will mention than this smells much deeper on my husband than myself, and less sweet. We often share fragrances, and this smells almost spicy and very deep on him.

  3. Very overpowering and realistic honey note, you literally feel you are smelling it an inch away. This has a lot of projection and will stay like it for about two hours or so then will start decling as the tobacco will start appearing a bit more.

  4. wanted this as soon as I read a review comparing it to my favorite shampoo Garnier Honey Treasures, I think that is one of the best smells in the world. Honey as a perfume note doesn’t always work on me though. This scent is VERY strong on application and a bit overwhelming (maybe the strongest Alkemia I’ve tried to date) but after a bit it mellows and YES while not an exact match, it is very similar to Honey Treasures, it’s sweet, deep, animalic, sticky raw and the tobacco is of the cigar type. If you love honey or tobacco this one is a must have, it’s addictive!

  5. Ugh, I can’t even begin to describe this scent. Okay.. so summer in the Midwest, sweet wildflowers, windows down brother has fresh bag of tobacco for his roll your owns. Just amazing, and very nostalgic. Definitely smells like ‘Le Petit Marseiliais’ body balm once dry down hits.

  6. The tobacco blooms, but the honey keeps it in check. There’s something minty underneath all of that, which adds a really interesting edge. There’s something in here that reminds me of Lush (in the best way), and I think it might be the waxy honeycomb. This is lovely and comforting, and not overwhelming or smothering.

  7. For once, a perfumer’s description is right on: Warm. Dark. Golden. Luminous. Untamed perfectly describes MdSeT. Dense, sweet, dark unburned tobacco and thick, golden, syrupy honey accented with barely-perceptible musky resin. Some of the best honey I’ve tried actually, even competing with NAVA’s amazing Black Honey accord. The scent does feel warm, in that wearing it makes you feel just a bit hotter. Almost smoldering. I had a similar experience with the myrrh in NAVA Egyptian Myrrh. Excellent scent, a must-try for honey and tobacco lovers. I know that combo is not uncommon, but Alkemia does that combo uncommonly well.

  8. This is one of the more unusual perfumes I’ve smelled. There’s an outdoorsy tanginess to the tobacco note. It’s very strong and overpowering initially, but this dries into warm, cozy, indulgent scent. Still a bit unusual.
