Josh also stated that he'd sent a sample of Sova which should arrive next week.

    So tonight checking my email, I find a link to Sova sent from my Slumberhouse subscription.

    Sova (formerly known as Tunis Mills) is now available for sale from Slumberhouse.
    I just ordered a sample of this as well and I'm really looking forward to trying it. It's a bit confusing, though, that this is apparently both a recreation of his first fragrance (also named Sova) and the latest incarnation of Tunis Mills, but a much less sweet version of it, according to Josh. At any rate, it sounds like it might be great for fall. I looked up several of the notes I wasn't familiar with and many of them have something to do with either tobacco or hay.

    I did the same thing. I found the list of notes along with their 'stage names' intriguing.
    I wonder how the 'less sweet' version will impact the overall feel of the fragrance, not to mention the use of castoreum starring as The Wolf!

    Just wanted to mention that Josh's annual 33% off sale has begun, and will continue on his website through this weekend only. Your chance to get a discount, support his worthy work (Yeah for us Oregonians !) and put your money directly into his pocket without a middleman taking their cut.

    The Slumberhouse site can be a bit cranky at times, so give it time to rest a little if it doesn't come up the first time.

    Two ends of the spectrum and I think two of Josh's best sellers.

    Grev is extremely similar to Jil Sander for Men, probably because of the cloves, mint and cedar, but less sharp, more wearable and interesting at the same time, that keeps getting better in the drydown, my favorite in the line.


    Kere is just a crazy composition, has this fruity sweet notes mixed with dark realistic curry spices and lasts forever on clothes, no kidding there.

    Sova it's a better experiment than Kere, both spicy and sweet, but not my cup of tea either.

    Jeke has this really interesting drydown, nothing surprising, just the notes listed, but unfortunately is not of the long lasting ones


    Vikt and Norne have better reviews than anything I can come up with, both good in their own way, but prefer Norne.

    Rume seems to be the base for an unfinished perfume (at least the sample I got) and by itself doesn't appeal at all to me.

    EDIT: the unlabeled yellow one seems to be Pear & Olive, I get a strong Secretions Magnifiques vibe, which is awful, mix with fruity sharp sweetness, just meh for me.

    They were $75 for 30 ml and now they're $115 for 50 ml. I think that's actually a decrease in price, isn't it?

    If there was a price increase, suspect it's a supply and demand thing. He's such a small operation that if he can get more, more power to him, is what I say.

    Got a sample of this in a split as a bonus, only spent about 10 minutes with it because we were about to go to some friends house and it was heavy duty.

    At first blast I smelled like a jar of cloves sitting in a campfire? I don't see cloves in the notes but I swear its the closest thing I have smelled to it. Maybe even a clove cigarette, interesting but not sure I can pull that off.
