Black River

Brand: Possets

Scent Description: An almost indestructible and ineluctable blend of resins which is deep incense combined with dark velvety vanilla wood. This is an instant classic, highly exotic and so rich that you will be able to wear very little and yet make a huge impact. Glorious and somehow I think of “bright night” when I smell it. Tremendously complex. Resinous, oriental, vanilla.

  1. Something in this blend comes across as animalic or civet like. It’s walking the razors edge of that awful cat pee smell! It reminds me of Besarabian Whorehouse. Most definitely a strong resinous scent. This one takes awhile to calm down on me. I think I need to age this bottle for awhile. Once it settles, it’s a lovely resinous Oriental scented woody vanilla fragrance. I hope the animalic note will lessen with age because I’m not a fan of that phase in this one. Other than that, it would be wonderful.

    1. So I aged this bad boy for 6 months hoping it would mellow. The first hour is a rough ride and then it finally mellows out somewhat. I’m not getting any of the vanilla wood. This is all resins on me and powerful ones at that! I think I’ll put this back to bed until Fall and try layering it with something syrupy sweet to see if it can temper the resins that are bitch slapping me in my face. Whew this stuff is strong!!! I think I’ll try layering this with Reason Rev. 1 (strong vanilla toffee scent) and see what develops. Geez this is taking so long to mellow out. If resins are your jam then try Black River out.
