    I haven't heard it, but being a creative type myself, I'd guess his favorite to be the most recent creation. But that is just a guess.

    Seems like I read an interview where he said it was Norne. He said it is the fragrance he always wanted to make.

    Has anyone got any info on when the SH shop online will be re-opening?

    I am wearing Baque for the first time today. My first impression was that it's somewhere between Sova and Rume. It has that honeyed tobaccoconutty feel of Sova with the thicker molassess-like dry fruit sweetness of Rume. There is a very distinct vanilla bean and ambergris tandem that becomes prominent as the fragrance dries down. I sense an almost roasted effect on the vanilla bean on my skin. I've really enjoyed wearing this one.

    Me neither. I figure if my skin does something bad to a fragrance, I shouldn't be wearing it, because it's fundamentally not working with my natural chemistry.

    This winter brought out a new love of my Rume tester. Just ordered a decant of it, because I decided I had to have it. But I'm dying to know what totally new and different stuff Josh is planning.

    I look forward to trying both of those someday. I hope they both worked their way into the company's regular lineup.

    *both of these being Bacque and Rume

    Everytime I read about Baque I think I'd really love it. I may have to see if I can find it at one of the decant places. It's not one I've looked for, but it sounds delicious. Did Josh do a strong Tobacco-centric scent ever?

    Is it? Well that might explain why I like it. I haven't yet familiarized myself with all the notes. Well, the truth is, I'm terrible at figuring out what notes I smell. I have a tendency to describe them more with pictures and emotions.

    The tobacco in Jeke is wrapped in a smoky campfire blanket, but its there. Understand that tabac, and a whisky boozy note, are featured in Bacque. but have never tried the latter.

    I'm trying to get my hands on Baque and Rume right now. I'll let you know how it goes, and if I do, what I find out. I went looking and neither of them is available in the usual places. I like the sounds of Tabac and booze! I'm actually sampling one right now from Sonoma Scent Studio called Tabac Aurea which I'd describe exactly that way, but add a bit of ash tray to the mix as well.

    Congrats danieq. Definitely spend a little time with Rume, specifically...it's difficult for some but I find it beautiful. Baque is definitely more straight forward, very pungent but good. I really wish Baque was released in an extrait as it would be a little less loud. Trust me a little amount will work for both of these and last all day.

    I sampled my first Slumberhouse this week, Norne, on my quest for a forest scent. It was amazing! Green, smoky fir trees on a cold day. I compared it to Fille en Aiguilles (which I sampled at the same time) and I liked Norne better. It was less sweet and warm, and more realistic. Much closer to what I was looking for. My interest is definitely piqued in Slumberhouse now. I'd love to try some more so I'll be reading this thread for suggestions.

    (edit: Wait, nope not my first Slumberhouse, I've tried Zahd as well. It's lovely and complex but I need to spend more time with it to parse it out fully)

    There's a nice tobacco note in Sova as well.

    Thanks. I was surprised at how well that all went. It's a first in my efforts at obtaining discontinued SH scents thus far. I guess it was time for an easy one.

    I'm glad to hear that a little goes a long way as that is all I'll be getting!

    How do people wear Norne? I've added it to my collection, having worn it on my wrist prior to purchase and fell in love. Now, first time I wore it out of the bottle, I sprayed both sides of my neck and wearing a black shirt, being conscious of it staining. Did not expect my neck to turn green and sticky! So what's the best way that you've found?

    I always wear an under shirt - also, i wear most Slumberhouse's under clothing only. I spray 1 chest, 1 upper back / slightly below the back of your neck, 1/2 sprays on elbow folds. Has worked well for me so far...

    I don't have Norne but here are a couple of idea, apply before clothing. Second, try applying a half spray instead of a whole. It's so potent that you don't need much. I know some people balk at this idea, but with a more concentrated parfum, I often rub it into the skin a bit so it's not just sitting on top in one little spot.

    Hey - Slumberhouse no longer has a list of their scents nor do they have an online store anymore - anyone know what's up?

    I bought Vikt from their site on black friday or whichever day it is that they have their 33% off sale... and visited a few times since then, but just looked today and the store and scents are gone!

    The answers are all in this thread. The online store was temporarily taken down as Josh switches his current lineup of scents to the new bottles.

    Norne is so thick, rich, and so Green, I have been dabbing. One schmeer lasts two days! (I love this stuff) And I put it on the back of my hand, to keep it off clothing. YOu could do the same at the nape of your neck, unless you wear a necktie (I do, so that's out).
