Thread: Slumberhouse Discussion
As a side note, I am really liking the new spray nozzles which allow for a half-spray. A huge upgrade over the old spray nozzles which were a little flimsy.
Hoping that since it sold out in less than 24 hours that late December is a possibility. "Zahd is my scent of the day" would be a nice post on Christmas day.
Most worn scents according to my haphazard use of the SOTD...so perhaps my favorites.
1. Epic Man by Amouage (24 wears)
2. Leather Oud by Christian Dior (22 wears)
3. M7 by Yves Saint Laurent (18 wears)
4. Oud Imperial (black) by Perris Monte Carlo (15 wears)
5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (14 wears)
6. Fate Man by Amouage (13 wears)
7. Interlude Man by Amouage (12 wears plus)
8. Journey Man by Amouage (12 wears)
9. Terré d'Hermés by Hermés (12 wears)
10. Sycomore by Channel (11 wears)
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
My wardrobe is up to date.
How long did those that purchased Slumberhouse Vikt get out of the fragrance? I'm quite curious. I only got about 6 hours myself from Vikt and that caught me by surprise. I did one spritz to the wrists which is more than ample for most other Slumberhouse fragrances to last well after a shower.
A plea to all those awaiting a bottle of Zahd, PLEASE DON'T UPLOAD PICTURES OF THE NEW PACKAGING! I'd like to keep it a surprise. Thanks!
Thanks deadidol, I know my nose wasn't broken today...but I'm pretty sure I figured out what my "issue" is here. It happens to be near the single digits here, nearing -30 wind chill and dry as all hell here in Chicago. My skin earlier I had noticed was unnaturally scratchy and dry itself...external factors had to play a big part. My skin never has issues with fragrances lasting forever, most especially those from Slumberhouse. I'll have to test again when the thermostat moves up a few notches and I get moisturized. The initial blast of Vikt smells a lot like the old stuff, but I was really digging the Oud/Sandalwood dry down, didn't get much incense but we'll see if it peeks in after wearing this when it's a reasonable temperature.
This kind of thing happens to me from time to time with his scents. Like, the first version of Zahd I tried lasted me like 5-6 hours, but the new one lasted me all day as is typical of his stuff. Then, the samples of Norne I had lasted me maybe 6-8 hours, but the one time I tried my bottle I got a bit better longevity, somewhere in the 9-10 hour range (I'll have to try wearing it again soon and actually time it better).
Then, of course, there is stuff like my current bottle of Sova that lasts essentially until I make an effort to get it off....it even survived a shower once recently.
Well good to know that I'm not just imagining the shortened longevity. I wasn't expecting it considering I NEVER have longevity issues, even with stuff that most people complain dissipates fast.
Just received my Slumberhouse order, including samples of Zahd and Mare. Zahd started out candy sweet, but has dried down (3-4 hours worn now) into a fragrance that rival favorites like Caron's Bellodgia and Bal à Versailles.* Mare, one I hadn't heard of and don't see for sale (anywhere!), started out as a blast of wintergreen or menthol but has settled into a woody/green gem. I must say I've yet to sample a Slumberhouse I don't like. Each one is a complex and sophisticated innovation that absolutely reeks (projection, longevity, sillage), which is what I want a perfume to do. Even Sova, which is a bit more gourmand than I want to wear, is a joy to smell.
*Must double-check this comparison. May have lost track of what I sprayed where.

Wearing Jeke today, first time spraying out of the 30ml bottle having used up my 2ml sample. Wow, even better than the sample. The booziness really came out and is needless to say quite intoxicating. By far my favorite tobacco fragrance! Nothing comes close to this. When I first read about Slumberhouse on here, I kept hearing how his fragrances are hard to wear, but I don't find that to be the case. Assuming I don't put too much on, I would wear Jeke anywhere almost anytime (maybe not in 100 degree weather). If I had to pick a signature scent, Jeke is one of my top choices
I love Mare's opening! I love how grassy it smells with something else I can't put my nose to.
it might be dill - someone mentioned this in previous thread we had...
I layered Zahd over Jeke. Total wow.
