Smell Bent Sunset People Reviews

My very first order from Smell Bent came yesterday.  I mean come on…..they came out with a disco collection.  I love disco (well, more specifically funk but that’s another conversation for a different day) so it was a given that I check it out.  I was sold when I saw the sample pack with shipping included for $18.

Disco Nap:  A dreamy blend of caramelized vanilla and ambergris softened with almond, coconut, and snuggly musks.

In vial:  Soft and perfumy.

Wet on skin:  Coconut and a little soft musk right at first.

Dry on skin:  This has softened down and I can definitely pick up the caramelized vanilla and almond.

Verdict:  I love this!   It’s a really soft and sexy kind of foodie but not scent.


Walk Of Shame:  Overcast skies, the chill of cold concrete, a waft of bodega blossoms and a bit of morning-after musk.

In vial:  Gritty pavement and perfume.

Wet on skin:  I can smell concrete and musk.

Dry on skin:  There is something in here that smells like the almond note that I love from a really expensive Guerlain perfume.  I don’t remember the name but it reminds me a bit of Playdoh.

Verdict:  I love this and will be picking up a bottle.


Tipsy Social Blah Blah:   The banter of boozy cocktailers against the backdrop of a dim, crowded bar.

In vial:  Like fizzy soda with a dash of citrus.

Wet on skin:  It’s dirty and just a little bit musky? Maybe that’s supposed to be a smoke vibe.   It does smell of carbonated adult beverage at this point.

Dry on skin:  I’m having a hard time putting this is words but I really like it!  It’s dark and boozy without the heavy buttery booze note that you get sometimes.  So  a little bit citrus, a little bit of clear booze and some bar smell laced with just a bit of desperation.

Verdict:  I like it and this would be equally good on a girl or a boy.


Mirror Ball:  Dark incense, shadowy woods, spiced hyacinth, and night-blooming jasmine.

In vial:  Sharp green floral.

Wet on skin:  Right off I get a big whiff of the incense and woods.

Dry on skin: As it dries down the sharpness eases off and I get a really gorgeous warm soft incense with just a bit of spicy floral and I swear I pick up some honey in there.   The floral isn’t bad at all and I think I can actually wear it!

Verdict:  If you know me, you know I have a love of all things disco ball and I was really disappointed when I read the scent notes for this oil.  Thankfully it turned out gorgeous and I love it!


Lady Gogo:  A double dose of sheer jasmine enlivened with orange flower, mandarin, fresh pepper and sexy sandalwood.

In vial:  Orange and bright citrus.

Wet on skin:  Very citrusy with just a whiff of pepper in the background.

Dry on skin:  As it dries down the jasmine comes to the front and is surrounded by lightly wafting citrus and just a bit of sandalwood.   I don’t really get any of the pepper.

Verdict:  A little too much jasmine for me but if you love jasmine then you should pick this up.  It’s a nice softly spicy floral.
