Conjure Oils Wu Xing Reviews

I finally got my grubby little hands on samples of the Conjure Oils Wu Xing collection.

**********

Yellow DragonAged vanilla resin, ginger infused red patchouli, seductively sweet Medjool dates and exotic Silk Road spices.

In bottle:  Soft and spicy.

Wet on skin: Right at first I get a blast of ginger red patchouli.   The vanilla resin and silk spices are very quietly lingering in the background.

Dry on skin:  The ginger has disappeared and the vanilla resin has amped and taken it’s place.   The lushness of the dates is a nice counterpoint.

Verdict:   Very nice although most likely not bottle worthy for me.   I’m betting it will age well.

**********

Azure DragonMirabelle plum, coconut husk, lemon honey, cedar wood, aged amber resin, sandalwood musk, crushed moss and tonka bean.

In bottle:  I swear I smell a juicy peach.

Wet on skin:  Hmmm…I get something sharp right off the bat.  Maybe it’s the moss and wood together?

Dry on skin:  This has an almost masculine vibe to it.   I think I’ve amped the woods and amber resin.   The coconut  is softly adding to the blend and softening it.

Verdict:  I can’t make my mind up about this blend.  I think I’m going to put it away and try it again in a month or so.

**********

Vermillion Bird-Apricot nectar, honeysuckle blossoms, vanilla musk, creamy white amber, heliotrope, basmati rice and a drop of sweet clove.

In bottle:  Vaugely floral.

Wet on skin:  Honeysuckle is right up top with the heliotrope and white amber revolving around.

Dry on skin:  This is a very pretty floral.  It’s mostly honeysuckle and heliotrope but I can definitely pick up some of the vanilla musk and clove.  I don’t get much of the basmati rice or apricot.

Verdict:  A gorgeous floral if that’s what you like.

**********

White TigerBlack tea, crushed violet petals, peach sugar, red sandalwood, aged amber resin, cured tobacco, soft suede and threadbare linen.

In bottle: Peachy and floral.

Wet on skin:  At first it’s all peach and tea.   Then the amber resin and suede emerge and add a nice deep grounding note to the blend.

Dry on skin:  Dried down violet and tobacco waft out to add a bit of richness.   I don’t really get much of the red sandalwood but maybe as it ages?

Verdict:   This is a very pretty blend and probably my favorite of the bunch.  It’s soft and feminine without being too girly.

**********

Black TortoisePomegranate fruit, blood musk, black vanilla orchid, dark patchouli, sugared amber, black currant and deep myrrh.

In bottle:  Musky.

Wet on skin:  Pomegranate is up front with the myrrh and musk whirling around.

Dry on skin:  The pomegranate is still at the front of this blend but there’s also a very light dusting of patchouli mixed in.    The myrrh is peeking out in the background.

Verdict:   Very pretty!  It’s most definitely a darker and heavier blend but the addition of the pomegranate fruit keeps it from being too incensy.
