The perfume of a hellbound soul, gleefully lost to iniquity: blood musk, golden honey, thick black wine, champagne grapes, tobacco flower, plum blossom, tonka bean, oakmoss, carnation, benzoin, opoponax, and sugar cane.
You know, considering the title and the description (not so much the notes) I fully expected this to be dark, heavy and nasty. I only got it because... because... uh, morbid curiosity, a love for things horror? But was very surprised that this was not the case. This scent is good!!! Not for me, mind you; but nice nonetheless. It is not too strong, and has no nasty spices. It does NOT remind me of cheap incense (another expectation).This smells masculine, grown-up, dry, complex. I smell some kind of wood, smooth/soft tobacco (I wonder if the tobacco part is purely wishful thinking, as I very much wanted to sniff it), a bit of acidic wine (I didn't like this note in particular). It has more throw at first; an hour later it gets softer, the wine notes disappear (a plus, in my opinion!) and it becomes more gentle, but still assuredly masculine. The dry-down is my favorite part!!!
This is meant for a refined man, not a hellbound soul! :-) And smelling this man, I don't believe for a second that he does evil deeds.
Color: some light wood
Veredict: Not for me, but YUM, deliciously masculine!!!
