About Necromancy

NECROMANCY - a method of divination involving communication with the dead - typically used as a means to foretell future events through a Medium via spirit board, but can also include the practice of physically raising the deceased's body, with or without the intention of bringing one back from the dead.

Necromancy fragrance notes

Reviews of Necromancy

Necromancy starts off very sweet and dark. The "funeral flowers" note -- carnation, as astutely pointed out by Shycat -- is the loudest voice in the opening, but doesn't really get to its crescendo right off the rip. A couple of minutes after spraying, it picks up strength and becomes more pronounced and brighter, overshadowing the benzoin and incense that dominate the initial few minutes. As far as the smell of a funeral home during a viewing...I'd say that this is a pretty good representation.

The benzoin and incense give it a warm backdrop, though it does eventually lose that warmth, becoming, in my opinion, very similar to the scent of an empty funeral home. Imagine fresh floral arrangements in an empty, old house. Clean, but without the smell of cleaning supplies. Flowers surrounded by utter stagnation.

I'd say it's unisex but leans on the feminine side, though I'm not sure if I really want to smell like a mortuary outside of a Halloween party. This falls under the category of "experiential fragrances" for me, and as far as taking an olfactory voyage, Necromancy certainly did its job. Like a good horror film, the trip was a bit unpleasant and brought up some not-to-happy memories...but that's the whole reason I wanted to try it. Nice creativity.

Thumbs up on this one.

Unabashed white floral with a rich vanilla, bitter almonds and resins underlay. Would be ‘go big or go home’ stuff, if its projection weren’t so measured. This is more like the fade of a power chord – but, oh what a chord!
Sadly, later in the day it smells mainly of moth repellent and wax on my skin but doesn’t warp quite as much on clothing, which it, alas, stains. That combined with its overall demure mien makes it another one struck off my endless list of possibilities.

Dark floral. Devilish incense. Definitely one of Claire's darker perfumes. Has a funerary accord. Brooding. Melancholy. Dark stained wooden coffins. Unisex? Absolutely. There is an animal note, lurking underneath, I'd swear.

Sixteen92 website lists "funeral flowers" in the notes for this one.

That means carnation.

Necromancy gives up it's carnation up top and immediately, but instead of trying to brighten and lift that note, cf. PdN Sacrebleu, this variation lets it sink into a darker environ. A sweeter place, and nope, there's no extra air. The carnation rides lightly after about an hour to the deeper base of sweetly warm and sensual incense and benzoin. The oud is not forward even after a couple hours. I don't find anything clean or fresh, and neither do I find anything that challenges my olfactory moral compass.

This turns out to be an easy wearing comfort scent, softly sweet, warm and inviting. I find it to lean to feminine or a particularly smooth masculinity. Proof that true evil is the ultimate seducer?
