    I sure don't know where one might. I was intending on scavenging the internet for one. I had only looked at the perfumed court and surrender to chance, but they didn't have it available.

    I was in pretty much the same position hunting for SMN Peau d Espagne the last couple weeks. Some samples are nearly impossible to get. Oddly, none of those decant related sites carry either that one or SMN Patchouli.

    Actually, I think you might have a new prototype of a scent called Kiste.

    So, Kiste is coming back around? Here's a photo from it's first appearance, last year. Any idea if this is a new variation, like what we got with Zahd, or basically the same as his original samples?

    Default Re: Slumberhouse Discussion

    There are a few ideas in circulation at any given moment, but Kiste was one of the prototypes from last year—a similar ballpark to Zahd, but with ginger, brandy, peach (not the kind of peach you'd expect). Sometimes a few unmarked vials will get sent out just to give people a taste of some of the ideas being developed, but they don't always come to fruition. Also in that image above is Kote which is an intentionally synthetic, quite dirty tobacco and almond scent, but in a previous life, it was more like wood polish.

    Hmm, the color is like the Kist in the photo, well, inasmuch as one can tell from a photo. Will give it a try and see if I can detect whether it is Baque or Kist. I do have a small decant of Baque.

    For those asking where to get them, I happened upon it on EBay. But it was a one off.

    Wearing the unmarked sample today. It's similar to Baque but a lighter version I think. I don't think it's Kist, more likely a slightly reworked Baque.

    Hm, this is all very interesting. I would try and talk to Josh about it, but I have a feeling he is busy as he didn't respond to my latest email (no big deal). Very much hoping for more new stuff from him.

    I don't know what I'd think if I smelled this on someone, maybe that they work in a candle shop or something. Between the fruit/pear, conifer, and soapy candle smell it reminds me of Christmas decorations--not food aromas--but all the other stuff you might smell around Christmas (potpourri, candles, wood, jackets).

    Good stuff.
    I love Sana; I've gone on about it at length. What it smells like (to me/on me) is exactly the smell of the Northern Ontario forest round about July-ish. Algonquin, or the Bruce Peninsula trails... A kind of steamy but fresh leaf mould, some sort of nonspecific fruity scent (which might not actually be fruit; maybe it's poplar resin or something), conifer and cedar resin - mostly - over a ground of other things. It only works in warm weather, though. I've been really missing it - it hasn't been warm enough for me to wear it.

    I think it's one of the hardest scents to dissect. I know what a few of the components are, but some are very hard to pick out. There's a minty item in there, believe it or not!
    To me, it's the scent of a saddle horse. Totally bizarre association, I know, but that's what it reminds me of. Quite possibly one of his strangest compositions yet, but not weird for the sake of being weird.

    Not to be speculative, but is someone fiddling with reviews of Slumberhouse on Lucky Scent?

    http://www.luckyscent.com/shop/categ...mberhouse.html

    There used to be reviews, some negative, some positive - and now nothing is listed in any of his fragrances.

    Progress being made! Although I had trouble reading the text in front of the photos. I was hoping there'd be pictures of the new bottles too. Maybe that is coming still.

    Yep. I still think he needs to expand his regular offerings more. I'd LOVE to see him expand into lighter territories as seasonally appropriate, and heavier as that is appropriate.

    I hear you, but given his model is based solely on the art form, I would be highly surprised to see that. But you never can tell. You can always hope!

    A query:

    Does anyone know when the original Baque was officially discontinued? Years ago I ordered a small (15ml?) bottle of baque and rume along with some larger bottles of Grev and (old) Vikt. All of these had the black cross-hatch textured stickers with white print.

    Then last year I orderd (directly from Josh) P&O and Sova in the newer glass-bead realizations with etched names on the bottles. Quite surprisingly, I was sent a bonus. No.. not a vial... not even a small sample or 30ml bottle... but a 100ml TALL bottle (current etched round tower) with the name Baque etched into it. (Do I have to remind people why I love this house? I ordered 60ml and got a bonus 100ml of one of my favorite scents... that, at the time, seemed discontinued).

    But I'm not sure... hence the question... when was the former Baque discontinued. It's nice to have the earlier (paper label) release for comparison. The newer (bonus) version is a much thicker, sweeter, and darker concoction. (A comparisson of the bottle color and density would be unfair... they're very different bottle thicknesses. But on skin I see the stain of the spray... oily... must be spread before I put on clothes. The previous version doesn't have this thick oily consistency on skin nor the golden, almost greenish color.)

    Just wondering if Baque was still being sold when he moved to the etched bottles with no caps. (In other words, was this some form of prototype for a newer version?) More likely (and humorously) it could be a botched batch... that he wanted to get rid of, hence the HUGE promotional bottle. But I doubt it. Nothing about this feels like an error. In fact, I love it... more smoke and far more long-lasting that my official purchase of Baque from the year before.

    Exactly, Naylor! (And I seem to recall that, at the time I ordered P&O and Sova, it was only four. These two plus (new) Jeke & Norne).

    I am traveling now but when home I'll post a pic to show what I mean. Just trying to figure out if anybody else has this rendition of Baque, and where it falls in the evolution of the scent.

    FumeHood: So, Baque has had a couple of iterations, but hasn't changed that much. I can tell by the description you gave that what you have in the 100ml was from the last cask that was produced. Basically, the amber materials were ramped up a touch in this version, so the tobacco feels a little more subsided. In other words, it splits the difference between rich, boozy amber and tobacco pretty evenly. It was still EdP strength though, so the consistency shouldn't be *that* different from what you had before.

    There was a small amount of a test extrait produced last year, but it wouldn't be enough to fill a 100ml bottle.

    My bottle of Baque that I ordered direct from Josh last year is in an etched bottle, no cap, with marbles. It's not oily or greenish though, and does not seem to be particularly heavy in amber - mostly dry, warm tobacco.

    Just trying a newly received sample of Baque against an old one.

    The colours are vey different with the new being golden, the old a little greenish (or, less golden).

    The new initially has a far richer/deeper scent - booze soaked dried fruits, smoky, rich tobacco with less emphasis on the dry smoky wood than the other version.
    They seem to become closer after a while, the new remaining a more satisfying & far rounder composition imo.

    The grown up child maybe?

    So far - that's about twenty minutes in

    Would buy if released...

    Less similarity to Sova - seems only marginal at some early stages.

    Around an hour in & beyond, a non-sweet vanilla emerged, the new remaining richer and darker, longevity improved (from dab samples) and no longer very close but still related.

    Can anyone go into a little detail on how the current Norne Extrait and older Eau de Parfum concentrations differ? I remember not being a big fan of the EdP because I found it overwhelming...like I broke a bunch of pine needles together and rubbed them all over my skin along with some pine tar (anyone that's played ball knows the smell.) Reading different reviews now, I'm thinking a lot may have changed from the older stuff to the new.

    Is there a big difference between the two? After trying the new Vikt and old...I have to say the two are almost completely different fragrances with the same name. Can the same be said for Norne?

    The scent profile in Vikt was quite different (tamed vegetal notes, ramped up fennel etc.), but Norne hasn't changed that much. Although I don't have the two in front of me, the old EdP was pretty blaring and loud whereas I find that I can load up on the extrait version without having to worry that I'm going to foghorn people. In other words, the scent's quite the same, but the wearability has improved. It's a much more subtle difference though than the Vikt / Ore retooling which really were total revamps.
