Ichnusa — fig, wood, cut grass and myrtle. Okay, I’m a sucker for fig scents, and this one is excellent as they go. A little dry with the wood notes, not overly sweet or vanilla-ish like L’Artisan Premier Figuer. I very much like it, but for the price point, I find PG’s Jardins de Kerylos to be just as good and for less money.
Fiori d’Ambra — ambergris and opium. What’s not to love here? Damn, I don’t even like amber, but this thing has got something pretty amazing seductive powers! It’s like it crawls up your nose and slithers down your spine to… well, you know. I don’t think I’ve got enough hotness left to want to wear this, but, Lord, if I were younger and back on the prowl, I’d team this up with some MKK and go slay men. In the words of Queen of Ho’s, Paris… That’s Hot.
CB I Hate Perfume Musk — I’m just not a skank person, but after reading the comments on CB’s Musk, I was thinking I would hate this, so March graciously sent me a squidge just to find out. I mean, I’m not going to wear it, it’s just not my thing generally, but as musks go, this one totally rocks. Huh. That’s a surprise for me — picture a furrowed brow with an eyebrow cocked quizically because I don’t get why I don’t hate it. Then I’m thinking if this were paired with the Fiori D’Ambra and/or MKK, all men would just be prey to be toyed with.
Drawing for me this week (I know I need to draw for whatever I was giving away last week), what’s left of all four of the Profumum samples that I’ve reviewed this week. Just drop a note to enter you in the comments, and I’ll draw next week for them!
