    Default Misfit by Arquiste

    I just saw this scent in the Directory, I hadn't heard of it at all. Has anyone smelled it? It has lavender, which intrigued me...but I have a feeling this is a patchouli-prominent scent.



    TOP NOTES
    Calabrian bergamot essence,

    Carrot seed essence

    Angelica root essence

    French lavender essence

    HEART NOTES
    Bulgarian rose essence

    Ambrette seed absolute

    Akigalawood™

    Styrax

    BASE NOTES
    Patchouli (proprietary combination of two fractioned essences)

    Spanish cistus concrete

    Venezuelan tonka bean absolute

    Tolu balsam

    It sounds good, but I haven’t had the opportunity to smell it yet.

    It's very nice. I feel lavender at the opening, in the dry down it becomes rosy-patchoulish with some vanilla.

    Picked this up recently & I’m loving it as well as others from the Arquiste brand.

    What I get is a light bergamot in the opening along with lavender,mixing with other unique,weird notes that give off an exotic vibe that keeps me intrigued.

    The fragrance list Carrot Seed,Angelica Root,Ambrette Seed,Akigalawood,& Styrax along with a few other notes in the opening & mid so I’m guessing when mixed with the Lavender that smells the most prominent in this phase gives off that exotic effect.

    I would say shortly in the mid a beautiful Patchouly starts to enter with a nice sweetness coming from the Tonka Bean & Tolu Balsam in the dry down that is to die for.The opening is mysterious,but the mid & dry down is exquisite,at least to my nose.

    Noticed you’re in Miami so If you get a chance stop down at Osme & get your nose on it as well as the other gems from Arquiste.

    Haven't had a chance to try this one yet, but hope to.

    Thanks - will do.

    The last Arquiste I smelled (when I was at Arielle Shoshana in VA) was Sydney Rock Pool and I really enjoyed it.

    If you have tried Masque Montecristo, is Misfit similar at all? They share several notes.

    It’s been awhile since I sniffed Monte Cristo,but I don’t remember them having similarities in scent.
