    Default Favorite Slumberhouse fragrance?

    I'm very curious which is yours! Personally, it is Baque. I love the more honeyed "Fall" that contrasts to Sova.

    I haven't tried even half, but so far, Sova leads the pack for me. Basque sounds intriguing though.
    I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

    Where's "Vikt?" (Is that "Verg" spellchecked?)


    I voted Norne. I was absolutely blown away the first time I smelled this. There's still nothing like it. I have the EDP.

    However, Zahd has the potential to take its place. I still need more time with it.

    Loved Baque, it was way too strong for me though. I wish it was released in extrait, I would wear it ALL the time. My favorites are definitely Rume EdP and the new Vikt.

    Right now, it's Mare for me. I'm infatuated. Zahd is hanging in there, but with tobacco notes on the line, champaca is going to have to take a number.

    The drydown of Mare is exqusite. When I compare it to the scratchy dry-downs of some very nice scents, I have to marvel. That base could be used in the most sophisticated modern feminines on the planet, and would give them what I can only describe as an Amelia Earhart vibe. Great stuff!

    My Mare bottle was leaking via the cap as I got it and the velvet pouch was soaked with Mare a tiny bit. My first reaction was ew as I smelled the pouch so I left it on the kitchen counter and washed my hands. Since I am rarely in the kitchen area so a few days past as I was cleaning some glasses, I smelled something really nice and turned out that was from the pouch siting on the counter, the dry down of Mare. It has been several months and the pouch still smells quite nice.

    I only tried 8 scents and would vote for Norne.

    Vikt extrait for me. My most worn frag this last winter. Put that one together with Ore and Norne, both of which I also love, and you've got a heck of a winter scent wardrobe!

    Default Re: Favorite Slumberhouse fragrance?

    Rume...but then I dab from a 5ml freebie I got from Josh when Rume first came out and it has a fantastic honey note to go with the festivities of the spice notes. Love the honey note!

    Then comes Sova, but for me it has to be applied very judiciously or else it gets to wearing me.

    I have a 50ml bottle of Rume as well. Did Josh discontinue Rume? I don't find it listed in any of the stock list sites and he hasn't put his Slumberhouse sale page up yet on his website.

    I voted for the great Norne. There is nothing like it around, then again, not much can keep up with Slumberhouse in general. I just wish he would stop discontinuing scents so quickly and frequently. Im now on the hunt for Sova and thanks to noideawhatimsaying, the honeyed Baque also. Thanks....

    Yes, Mare has set the hook with me, too. Seems to be how the fragrances of this house work!
    Mare has Spring!! stamped all over it.

    I'll have to say from the few I've tried so far, Vikt was the most interesting and actually wearable.

    I can't really pick a favourite, because it varies by my mood, and by season. I thought I hated Pear & Olive, but it turns out I like it - but only on certain summer days. Some days all I want is Sova, other times the very thought is offputting. I can say which ones I've just never warmed up to - my samples of Norne and Vikt. I don't hate them, but no matter how many times I try them, they're never anything more than "Christmas tree farm" on me. Very blah, and surprisingly short-lived.

    Wow, interesting. I get a full day from a couple of dabs of Vikt, and a couple of dabs of Norne carries me for two full days!

    In fact, I started with a 1.5 ML sample of Norne. Tried it a few times, liked it, and decided to buy a bottle. I still haven't emptied my 1.5 ML sample! At this rate, I think it absolutely clear that my 30 ML bottle of Norne will outlive me. (I'm 60).

    Yes it is, I'm hoping that one day it's release in extrait form...so it would be a bit more subdued...like the new Vikt Extrait. Baque is a screamer! Once it mellows though, it's hard to beat.

    Baque isn't available anymore...although deadidol mentioned in a few posts that it may be revisited eventually...but as of right now you can't get it anywhere. Vikt is still available at multiple outlets.

    I received a sample of Baque a couple of weeks ago with an order, so don't give up yet

    It's quite a bit different to the older sample someone here sent a while back, as described in the SH Discussion thread.
