  1. Smells like forest floor, incense, and sliiiightly herbal. Kind of gives me old lady vibes somewhere in there. One of my favorite things to wear now that the weather starts to cool down.

  2. Dragons blood is the dominant note in this for sure. It has a weirdly juicy grape Jolly Rancher aspect to it for me. The other elements are just in the background, drying things out and adding a little depth. I feel like a forest witch up to some mischief. It’s pretty similar to “We Are The Weirdos, Mister.”

  3. Whoooooooo dragon’s blood. Lots of it. It’s a very “bright”, almost cherry-like smell on me at first. Really powerful throw and longevity— the oil lasted for days on my clothes. Drydown is not as complex as I hoped because of the overpowering dragon’s blood, but the smoke and fresh dirt are definitely there to tone it down. Definitely unique in comparison to mainstream scents, if that’s your jam.

  4. The wax and dirt temper the dragon’s blood and keep it from being too sweet. Almost reminds me of Avon Skin So Soft bath oil at first. Very nice

  5. This one is all soft incense and realistic dried herbs. I’m not usually a fan of smoke notes but the woodsmoke is subtly sweet and makes the scent very wearable if you’re typically not a fan of incense. The dirt and candle wax notes keep it from being too headshoppy, giving it more of a forest witch vibe. I wore this one almost every day last fall but lately it’s been smelling somewhat sickly sweet. I’m hoping it’s just a change in my skin chemistry/the weather. I plan on letting it rest for a while and seeing how it fares next fall. Above average longevity.

  6. For me it comes across as a really nice incense scent, it has a dryness to it, not sweet at all. I get dragon’s blood and something that is suggestive of dry herbs, maybe a bit of dirt in there. As the day went on though, it started to get really sneeze inducing and started to get a little floral for some reason. I started out really liking it, but it ended up reminding me of the scent an old teacher of mine wore that made me sneeze. Good throw & longevity.

  7. This is the scent I wish I could love. It smells like when I worked in a crystal shop and all the boxes of incense mingled in the air. I put it on and love the scent. Then ten minutes later my jerk asthmatic lungs start to protest. I would buy this as a gift though because it is beautifully blended.

  8. Incense-y, smoky, and utterly atmospheric. This is a soft incense with a slight smoky bite to it. The wax/dirt notes tone down the sweetness of the dragon’s blood, making it more wearable and very evocative of a witchy cabin in the woods. The candle wax bizarrelyreminds me of cold air, in some ways. Incense-haters will probably dislike this – though I’m usually an incense-hater, and I found it interesting enough to keep around – but for those interested in smoky atmospherics, I think this is well worth a try. Decent longevity – about 6 hours, if not more.
