Jurogumo (Japanese Spider Demon)

Brand: Possets

Scent Description:

A powerful vanilla musk the likes of the one used in Dance With Me (VERY seductive yet subtle and cloud-like), and rich cardamom,and finally the nectar of peaches squeezed in the summer sun and concentrated to make a sugary peach liquor.

This perfume is named for the Japanese spider demons who appear to hapless men as beautiful women who serve them and play irresistible music for them. They lure their victims to sleeping in their laps and them wrap them in silk and feed on them as they are helpless even to scream, being paralyzed by the venom of the spider devil, they can feel but not cry out.

The choice of the white and gauzy vanilla to reminds one of spider’s silk and how appealing it is when a light shines through it and it casts a soft glow by diffusing light. The cardamom is an illusion of the hospitality the spiderwoman shows men, and peach to imagine what dainties she would prepare for the men she was going to feed upon.

Dangerous and sexy.

  1. Ooooh this smells so good! Vanilla musk, cardamom and a faint candied peach in that order blend together to make a truly beautiful scent. To me, it’s the cardamom that makes this so unique. This one has some really good lasting power on my skin. I can see myself wearing this throughout the year and I live somewhere where you experience all four seasons. If you’re familiar with Dance with Me then your nose will pick up on that wonderful vanilla musk right away. This is one of those treasures where a few notes combine to make something magical.
