In this order........
1.Carnal Flower. When I get obsessed with a scent, I really get obsessed. For someone who just about hated that wintergreen note, I now love it. I think I love it even more than the tuberose absolute in this fragrance. I love the way this perfume just gets under your skin and becomes a skin smell. I love the way it morphs from beginning to end. I love how it starts fresh and ends up skanky with the musk ,hours later.
I love the color of the juice- golden thick yellow, the packaging ,the bottle and how the stopper is like a hockey puck .
2.Vol de Nuit Extrait. As much as I have' gone off' Guerlain somewhat lately, Vol de Nuit despite its shortcomings in the longevity department ,speaks to my soul . Deliciously addictive ,warm,sweet,heavenly.
3. Estee Lauder Tuberose Gardenia. Just perfect gardenia.
4.Poivre . I think that if I had found Poivre earlier ( forever grateful to Haunani for introducing me to this ! ) I could have worn Poivre as a signature scent for many years. Now I am too much of a perfume whore to do that. Nothing beats that blast of pepper and then the carnation , clove with vanilla and amber. A very unique and memorable scent. Longevity is nuclear.
5.Black Gardenia by Michele Bergman. Just whack me on my head because I don't know why I love this.Maybe a throw back to my Sousxie and The Banshees days -black tights and black eye make up . It's addictive ...again....( good thing I don't do drugs ,huh ! ) ...sweeeeeet stuff, gardenia goth magic. Yum !
Honorable Mention. Caprifoglio by Santa Maria Novella. THE best honeysuckle soliflore ever. Me wants but me wants too much .
Suga- glad you love Acaciosa ( still can't spell it right ) .....my absolute pleasure !
