There is a plus to this stuff but oh so many negatives. This is really vile stuff it literally stinks of dirty old washing machine water, fusty not in a good way. I can not smell the moss or marble as described it just smells rancid. I tried for hours to wash away the smell but it just would not go and it was so strong I felt dirty wearing this my family would not come near me saying I smell like I have been rolling in bin water. Now the lady who makes these is a lovely person...maybe I just got a dud I don't know but man....it's so bad...like the worst fragrance I have ever smelled or owned and I own and have smelled quite a lot. Now I will give the plus and negatives.
+ This fragrance has great Silage.
+ This Fragrance has the best longevity ever.
- This Fragrance has great Silage....unlucky people.
- This Fragrance has the best Longevity ever....please just wash off me..go anything!
- It reeks like old bin water that is just left out in the sun
- The Worst smell ever.
- Does not smell like described or a crypt...unless the crypt is by a dump.
This review is based on the solid perfume.
Dust-dry, a touch of cedar, maybe cypress. There is nothing damp or musty about this; a mainstream company could have easily called it 'Granite' or some such. Suprisingly good sillage and longevity developing to a touch of sweetness. Suitable for m/f, suitable for office wear.
Well, green_man said it all. A subtle mossy green note combined with a stone mineral note nicely balanced. The combination is unique and I find the accord quite natural. It smells like mountain climbing in the sun — the lichens and the rocks giving off their wonderfully discreet odors. Come to think of it, it’s actually even more abstract than that, it’s almost as if I’m not wearing a fragrance, but simply mirroring the smells of that natural world I so much enjoy — it smells so fresh and natural. I get very little sweetness - sometimes having dry skin is an advantage. Crypt is satisfyingly pleasurable, and it would be an excellent office scent. A major downside is that it is very short lived... but then again, considering its name, is that really a surprise?
According to Goth Rosary Crypt is "Surrounded, haunting... the smell of moss clinging to a marble Mausoleum..." I just received my 2oz bottle today, and concur with that description. I can't describe the scent, but it changes and is very dynamic. It is a wonderful mix of faint, pleasant smelling moss and a cold stone smell. It does offer mental images of an ancient crypt. The smell is intriguing, and I truly enjoy it. I am no goth, by any means, and I believe that anyone could wear this fragrance. It seems a bit masculine to me, but it is no way overpowering or heavy. If anything, on my dry skin, the fragrance isn't quite strong enough. I really enjoy the way the fragrance will almost slip away from you for a bit, and then you get another hit of it before you forget that you're wearing it. After I use this bottle, I will definitely be ordering more from AntiSally (the owner of Goth Rosary). What a wonderful change of pace... Highly recommend this one!
