Byredo M/Mink hit my radar when Portia mentioned it as a layering weirdo to get my cobwebby dank library smell I’m looking for.
First, before I forget! Winner for the draw of my fave library scents, and I’ll throw in some of this Byredo M/Mink as well – Briony. Just click on Contact Us up there, send me your mailing address, and I’ll get these samples out to you!
Notes of adoxal, incense, patchouli, honey and amber. So, yeah, there is going to be a bit of urine, as many of the reviews pointed out with varying degrees of disgust and admiration.
I actually did a short review ages ago, but I barely remembered it. Yes, there is cat pee and lots of patchouli, and it is inky in a weird Sunset Boulevard kind of way, and it is the perfect thing to layer over something you want to weird up a little bit – or a lot. I’m thinking of throwing some on over Pink Sugar tomorrow just to see what happens.
If you can take one of your fairly normal mainstream scents – you really do like it, but you’d like to toss some weird thing like this over the top just to see what it does to it, which fragrances would you want to “improve” with a character-building topper scent?
