JAR Shadow, have I talked about this in depth? I think I haven’t. This goes on sharp and musty. For some reason, it takes me to the root cellar we had when I was a kid — one we would play in and search around in, looking for secret treasure while also being scared out of our minds at the things that were in the shadows that we couldn’t see. JAR Shadow is full of secrets and dark places. The JARs are a mystery to me. Every time I put one on, I feel like it is an excursion into dark places, jumping into an ocean without knowing the depth.
After a while, the clove does move more to the front, and the sharpness softens, but it remains pungent and rich and just a little bit scary, but a familiar scary. It’s not a scent that will ever make you comfortable, but it will take you on a journey.
Shadow is both familiair and foreign. It attracts and repulses. It’s the best kind of perfume frog — one that you never forget once you kiss it.
