Brand: Solstice Scents
Scent Description: This is a very sinister amber blend. A heavy, dry, resinous amber blend base with leather, beeswax, benzoin, frankincense, palo santo, smoke and fire. For those who remember the Inquisitor blend from years ago, this one is darker and not quite as sweet. This one opens with a whip of black leather, amber, fire and palo santo. Give it a few minutes as the sting of leather recedes and hot melted beeswax and benzoin emerges and sweetens up the amber. A sweet tendril of woodsmoke curls around the frankincense. The body heat seems to ignite a fizzy effervescence in the perfume as well. The dry down is a sweet, dry, dusty amber with the beeswax and benzoin still present and a bit of smoke. Inquisitor contains nominal amounts of myrrh, vetiver, patchouli, sandalwood, oud and rosewood as supporting notes but the aforementioned listed notes are the key players.

Very heavy leather, resins, and burning wood. Way more intimidating than I was expecting, in a good way.
An extremely intense scent. Lots of that sharp leather accord–very similar to those in Alkemia and Fyrinnae blends. A hefty dose of beeswax beneath. There’s a wealth of firey resinousness here. A power scent for sure. Reminds me of leather armour and war.
