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.
Elegant and Sensual
Modern and Conspicuous
Delicate and Intriguing
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.
i love it!! here everything is done so well! the idea follows the one from Pulp, to create juicy, attractive, "sweetish" type of smell that would smell exotic and unusal and apealing at the same time to many people!
the combination of flowers here with aroma of carrot gives it extra twist, all based on beautiful sandalwood, among the best if not the best creation from this house(have not tried them all yet:), though veery femminine to my nose
