Snow Witch: Familiar is the scent of a witch and her animal companions snuggling on a quiet, snow-muffled day. Cafe au lait, vanilla-infused cheesecake, a soft woolen blanket and warm fur. This is a perfume oil.

The Redolent Mermaid: When unstoppered the aromas of roasted coffee beans and tonka beans appear. They harbor in a cashmere scarf. Sepia toned vanilla woods provide a shadowed vignette that surrounds the scent. On the skin a creamy latte is served right up, foamy in its sweetness with extra spoonfuls of sugar. Almost immediately the thick vanilla cheesecake arrives. It possesses a hint of salty richness around the edges, perhaps it is the crust or some caramel sea salt hidden in the layers. On my skin at this point it *almost* leans towards popcorn. The cheesecake slowly morphs into warm wool blankets that hold a bit of lanolin and the scent of clean scalps within. These are the purring and huffing familiars gathered around while the cafe au lait steams in cupped hands, pooled into a favorite vessel. It dries down into the cozy scent of the family snuggle blanket. You know the one that the pets sleep on, the youngsters steal to make forts and mom wraps herself up in on slow mornings. This blanket has hosted countless sips of coffee and teas and furry companions. It is sweet, musky, creamy yet has a tender clarity. I adore the drydown on this one. It is fantastic.
ellocentipede on tumblr: Familiar is an ultra-snuggly, cuddly, warm, fuzzy blend of milky cafe au lait-flavored cheesecake. It’s not sugary-sweet, but is absolutely a gourmand blend. I don’t necessarily pick up the fur or blanket, but there is a sort of hazy, warm, cloudiness to the blend that makes me think of being wrapped up in snuggly flannel blankets in a worn leather armchair by a fire. This one is comfort-in-a-bottle for lovers of coffee!
