Happy New Year!!!
Happy New Year!!!
I'm thrilled you are digging Providence Perfume Co.! I'm a big fan and feel a bit of pride that they are based in the tiny state I call home. I hear you about being afraid to smell more, lest you end up loving and buying more (they are a little pricey, but fairly priced, I think). It's the reason I purposely avoid sampling certain houses. As Scarce pointed out, naturals get tagged with poor staying power, but I found that to be true only with a few from PPCo., and they were the lighter/citrusy ones - a trait that synthetic analogues share as well. If you do try Cocoa Tuberose, please let me know what you think
The only thing about those naturals is that they don't last long, supposedly. I didn't really find this to be the case, as 4-6 hrs is fine by me in most instances anyway. Both houses are somewhat pricey per bottle, but worth it in my view, when a lot of niche perfumes really aren't.
i like their stuff very much. Aftelier is another one I'm fond of.
