Seven Veils fragrance notes

Reviews of Seven Veils

Smells kinda weird, though not necessarily in a bad way. The playdoughy-carroty topnote juxtaposition with the peppery and somewhat medicinal bitter sweetness of the heart creates a scent aura that is intriguing. In small doses, and for brief periods, SEVEN VEILS actually smelled like nothing else on this earth. It made me smile, it gave me hope. It made me forget the fruity beast called PULP.

Um, no... I was intrigued by the supposed carrot note, but it's more of a nondescript spicy sweetness than anything I'd consider carrot. But the real issue is that the "carrot" sits on top of a very pedestrian mix of pink pepper, patchouli, and marshmallowy vanilla, so Seven Veils ends up smelling like a mediocre Burberry Brit copycat. One of those perfumes for people who want to pay $150 to smell like they're wearing a $20 scent.

As for carrots, I still think the best carrot note out there is Providence Perfume Co's Eva Luna, while the most wearable carrot perfume has to be I Love Les Carottes by Honore De Pres...

Wow. I thought Seven Veils was going to be a love at first sniff, but no. I think I must be anosmic to certain vanillas because I got no vanilla in this--at all. I did, however, get a huge blast of pink pepper, rough wood and a strangely cold and plasticy floral note. To my nose this all came together in a really synthetic smelling way, though happily there was not much sillage or longevity. Honestly, wearing Seven Veils was a strange experience.

Carrot and Pimento = neat whisky. That is what I smelt and it was gagworthy so can't give a full review of any progression. Very odd

I'm not sure Bugs Bunny would wear this - even with the carrot note. SV begins with a heavy, syrupy mix of carrot & pimento, giving it a smooth, but darker overall feel.

The heart notes join in with a mish-mash of florals. The pimento and carrot are now surrounded by a lighter feel, but still remain strong overall.

Overall, my experience with this fragrance was just not good. On the one hand, it didn't necessarily smell bad up front, but I kept noticing that every time I wore SV, I kept wondering if I was wearing an old undershirt that I had forgotten to wash. I literally get whiffs of body odor whenever I wear this. Finally after a couple of wears of SV, I realized it was the fragrance and not me. I personally think SV smells like a carrot that has just done a robust workout with P90-x and is just sweating all over the place.
