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.
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.
