Rounding out the last of my Possets Perfumapalooza posts is a trio of scents that I’m excited to try. (Not that I haven’t been excited this whole time, but, you know, semantics.) If you missed the previous parts they are here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.
Eve begins the end of my journey with whose description is a heavy oriental, resplendent with musks, earthy sweetnesses, lingering and sexy as only that first lady could have been. In the vial it is woody and slightly resinous with a touch of incense – deep and earthy almost. On my skin there’s a touch of vetiver with an almost animalistic musk (castoreum blend?). This is the earth and dirt and the sun beating down beautifully on a naked body. I keep getting an animal-like association – though I suppose that is somewhat appropriate. It’s dark and musky with a hint of animal and a touch of earth with only the barest bit of sweetness.
Ouija is next with notes of calming cedar and rosewood, black vanilla, fat vanilla, and a touch of rose to give it a sweet side, black silk scent, and a touch of coriander. Oooh, in the vial I get a nice whiff of rosewood and cedar. On my skin those are still apparent, though muted, and the vanilla and that intriguing black silk scent takes the forefront. This is flowing and haunting blend with bits of rose rising and flowing through all the notes. Black but almost gossamer in feel. It’s not a skin scent and is making itself known. Very nice! This is just throwing itself all over the place! I kind of like that.
Rounding out this wonderful ride through some of Possets catalog is Wings of an Angel with notes of hawthorn, white musk, a touch of ethereal mintiness, gorgeous regal vanilla Bourbon. In the vial is hawthorn and vanilla, and while those notes persist through applying to skin, they seem to warm up. The mint is soft and sweet, perhaps because of the vanilla bourbon. This is gentle, comforting and soft. Sweetly gorgeous and almost hauntingly beautiful. I could see myself wearing this to bed and drifting off to the soft fluttering of wings of an angel.
This has been a blast! So many bottle wants out of these 5 parts! I’ll get to those and hopefully have some more samples to test out!
