I ordered an embarrassingly large amount of perfume with this last update as they all sounded so good! There were some that I just knew I would regret if I passed on them. I figured I would break the review posts up three to four reviews per post. Hope this works for you guys. I also included photos of the bottles as some folks had requested that. Enjoy and on to the reviews!
Karkade Summer:Santalum LE-Hibiscus Leaf of Aswan, Sugar Resin, charmingly Aged Nokturne:Santalum (Aromatic Egyptian Sandalwood of the Aswan area) with Egyptian and Indian Black Tea.
In bottle: Hibiscus leaf…..very green.
Wet on Skin: I’m getting a slightly spicy black tea with a hint of sandalwood.
Dry on skin: As it dries down the tea actually gets a bit stronger but the entire oils mellows and softens with the sugar resin.
Verdict: I like this a lot more than I thought I would! It’s really sexy and I’m super glad I got a bottle as I think age will only make it better!
Bastet’s Somnolent Summer-Aged Sapphire, Egyptian Sugar Crystals, a drop of soft Apricot Essence Incense, a few drops of Sweet Black Pepper and Vanilla-Amber Incense.
In bottle: Powdery and sweet.
Wet on skin: Right at first it smells just a little bit like cola or maybe sassafrass? I think that’s the sugar and black pepper together.
Dry on skin: Wow….this is super sexy! If Dr. Pepper has a risque aunt who always got a little too tipsy at the holiday parties, I image this is what she’d smell like.
Verdict: Oh. Em. Gee. I love it. It’s soooooo gorgeous.
