New company! New scents! New experiences!
Apothescary Scents came on my radar from the Indie Makeup and More page on Reddit. I ordered a sampler pack and it was shipped fast and packaged nicely. Very impressed. These have been sitting for almost two weeks now so they’ve had their rest from their travels and then some.
Autumn People – the perfect October night with a heady blend of blood orange, wood smoke, fallen leaves, oakmoss, and more.
In the vial this is sharp, almost acidic, and very pine-sap-like. This is not for the faint of heart. This is raw, dirty, and gritty. This is vegetal and desiccated leaves on a forest floor with pine sap and oakmoss, a hint of orange and just a faint touch of smoke off in the distance.
As this dries, so does the “wet and dew covered” type of over all scent that this seems to have. The throw is decent, not too strong (except right in the beginning), and floats around you giving the impression that you are actually nestled into the deep of a forest. It actually reminds me of walking through some of the less traveled trails here in North Carolina … it’s just missing that red clay scent that permeates (and stains) everything.
Dry this is beautiful. The smoke comes out more and that fresh wood tossed on a fire scent before the log actually catches. You also get a lot of that oakmoss and dried crunchy leaf scent.
If you’re looking for a raw forest scent, this is it. I admit, I’m in love with this one.
