Howdy, Posse folks! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and/or weekend. Our computer died last week (with all my bookmarks AND Posse post drafts, waah!), so I’m flying by the seat of my pants here today. Anyhoo, I’ve just tried something that many of you have raved about and been enjoying for a while: Ex Nihilo Sweet Morphine.
Yum! This is so nice, a little sweet, very smooth, lovely and airy, without being cloying or too sweet. Someone said it reminded them a little of Puredistance Opardu, so I need to dig out my sample and do a wrist-to-wrist comparison. Not sure how I missed this: I guess it just didn’t click with me that this has lilac in it, as I usually go ga-ga over anything with lilac. But better late than never, right?
Sweet Morphine doesn’t last terribly long on me, but I’m happy to re-dab it as needed. I only have a dab sample but may have to see about a decant (keeping my fingers crossed it doesn’t go way off-track in the spraying as things sometimes do). And you gotta love that blocky pink bottle with textured gold cap. It would be so cool if they made this in a mini.
Sweet Morphine notes per Fragrantica: Top notes are lilac and bergamot; middle notes are iris, mimosa absolute and rose; base notes are vetiver, patchouli, bourbon vanilla, heliotrope and orris.
How many of you like Sweet Morphine too? Have any of you gotten a FB of it? Or what scent have you finally tried that others have been praising?
