Brumaire Woods is beautifully well done...
"This house makes tremendously picturesque fragrances (if that makes sense) that are particularly well-blended. Yet...they still manage to express the personality of each individual ingredient in it's highest form...This is a wonderfully joyful fragrance - it smells like taking a walk in the morning when the dew is still on the grass and the heat of the day is just peeking over the horizon...Brumaire Woods is beautifully well done..." @kicksandscents
Brumaire Woods is a BEAUTIFUL creation from my favorite house discoveries in recent memory...
A BEAUTIFUL creation from my favorite house discoveries in recent memory, @witandwest, Brumaire Woods. I've already gone into detail with this so I'll be brief. A soothing to the soul creation. Relaxing complexity. Lavender, Peppermint, Thyme, Neroli, Jasmine, Tobacco and Oakmoss. All off these scents I've tried from them must be worn and experienced to truly understand the olfactory journey they take you on. Very few of my 300+ bottles can do what this house has achieved in terms of taking me on a trip and really experiencing a fragrance.@mikescents
Summit Rose - A sprinkle or two of it feels like you are in a pure and spiritual world...
"A sprinkle or two of it feels like you are in a pure and spiritual world when this friendly genie invokes balanced, elaborate and woven aromatic materials...Wearing it, makes you feel a strong and bright aura of Roses, with a mixture of Frankincense and Rosewood sweetened with Fir Balsam, with a smooth smoke of Marjoram, coveralls with influxes of green and fruity notes..." @freshnose_fragrance
Summit Rose - This one was love at first sniff.
"...This one was love at first sniff. The name really is exactly what you get. Growing up in the country side in northern MN, I spent many days getting lost in the woods, cutting and climbing trees. So naturally I enjoy coniferous notes. That green, resinous, piney, sappy, deep evergreen smell. This has just that. Mix that in with that same feel of that sweet, sticky, jammy rose, and this easily bumped every rose scent I have ever smelled, to the back of the line." @mikescents
Rosa de Bolero - The darkest, most unisex osmanthus
"...The darkest, most unisex osmanthus. Osmanthus twig on a biker leather jacket, with droplets of lapsang souchong...What's unsual here is how the tea note and spices make the leather fresh and almost water-color transparent. There's a lot of movement here, I can almost sense the waves of smell, when I wear it in an empty space, I feel like I am not alone." @scentaliona
Gardenia 'Ono - sooo good that I just bought 2 bottles because I just needed it in my life!
"...The Gardenia and champaca create this magical floral accented with key lime. The first transformation you notice is that this one starts to sweeten up with the vanilla and tonka bean. The sandalwood finishes this one off and really makes this settle as a sweet creamy floral...sooo good that I just bought 2 bottles because I just needed it in my life!" @mikescents
Gardenia 'Ono - a uniquely done gardenia...
"A uniquely done gardenia...very natural, edible sweet, warm tropical-floral creamy gourmand, radiant, rich and smooth, almost like peach, or apricot spicy drink, can be tea, can be smoothie, velvety and pleasantly bright! All notes blend very well, I'm pleasantly surprised by this scent, can recommend for beautiful experience, for summer vacation or just for those who love gourmand-floral fragrances." @natlovemoon
Gavitella - I find this quite contemporary for a botanical, often something hard to pull off due to the nature of the shapeshifting organic ingredients.
"...It’s like peeling back the reddish-orange citrus skin, the leaves and all combined, and slowly revealing the innards of a glowing fruit orb. It’s like the spiced allure that one gets from indulging in a wondrous cider made of prickly pear and mandarin, stewed over a slow burn fire of cedar and sandalwood. It’s as bracing as it is coastal, and yes, that can be one and the same, or not, depending. Though, when the wood comes through, it’s as if the thicket of limbs replicates nerve endings, surrounding you like a nest, with the best type of nourishment for the senses. Deeply embedded is a passing accord that reminds me of a jazzy patchouli, but its fleeting. I find this quite contemporary for a botanical, often something hard to pull off due to the nature of the shapeshifting organic ingredients. The Italian Mediterranean, the Tyrrhenian coastline – Sardinia, Capri, Positano, Salerno, Ravello – a little of each seems to emerge from this artfully concocted perfume. The hills are alive, and the trees are in full bloom along the wavy shore. Enjoy the olfactory view from here." @tjnorrisart of notetakingblog.com. View the Full Review
Habari - ...this just may make you feel (even those who are irreligious) as though you have been given entrée into a world of magic, and the lure of angelic spirits.
"...What rises up first is the combination of clove and a shaded pepper note. The spics have a striking yet cooling sensation, both on my senses and on my skin – likely making this a great option to wear on the humid months of the Texas everyday. There are florals woven in and around the fine spice and balsamics here, though they are delicate enough to play a secondary role, sweetening the perfume just one iota. It’s breathy, lively, warm. This aromatic fragrance is altogether dynamic in its colorful spectrum and will garner attention from on-sniffers and even strangers...The phrase #blessed is so trite, but this just may make you feel (even those who are irreligious) as though you have been given entrée into a world of magic, and the lure of angelic spirits." @tjnorrisart of notetakingblog.com.

Honeysuckle Halcyon - It smells somewhat forbidden, perhaps a bit taboo...even a bit naughty.
"...Honeysuckle Halcyon does indeed harken back to the days of 'speakeasies of 1920's Chicago' as mentioned in the story behind the perfume. It's a lingering affair - heavy in the air like a humid ballroom full of women and men dancing the night away, intense almost animalic jasmine invigorating the open with warm, almost thick honeysuckle enrobing the jasmine in a honeycomb of sweetness. It smells somewhat forbidden, perhaps a bit taboo...Perhaps it is even a bit naughty in it's suggestion of what's yet to come...It’s a fun night at the “the Green Mill” for sure. And a fun fragrance to boot. This is a perfect later summer into the first cool days of fall type of fragrance – champagne in one hand and the other bidding farewell to a fond summer." @kicksandscents
