Floral certainly isn’t going to be accused of false advertising. I smell (I think) a touch of muguet, a hint of jasmine and a little heliotrope. I’m glad they didn’t get too over-the-top here; it’s very pretty, and works well with a spritz of
Dry, which isn’t quite truthfully named. It’s a spicy, balsamic incense that’s more dry in the sense of dry martini than dry desert. No bad thing that.
Musky is (shockingly) my favorite, with its fruity immortelle base. I loved it alone but especially liked it layered with
Green, which had notes ranging from sweet fresh-mown grass to bitter celery. I love green in scents and this tickled my green fancy.
Woody is interesting. It doesn’t get to “wood” in the conventional way by using cedar or something, but the odd combination of notes (root beer, amber and spices) actually remind me of the smell of freshly cut wood that I remember from the wood shop class I was forced to take in school. Since that smell and a rather misshapen wastebasket were the only good memories I took from that class I might let this one sit on the shelf and stick with
Citrus, which is bright and aldehydic, taking the usual juice and peel of the fruit and introducing an interesting bit of the pith. I could see this as the “type O” of the group: nice on its own but perhaps even better when used to add interesting layers to any of the other five.
As usual, these are $7 for a 4ML travel spray or $49 for a 50ML edt. They have a package of all 6 in travel size for $33 with free shipping at the smell bent website. I received my samples from the perfumer. Artwork is from smell bent.
