For Strange Women is an indie perfume company located in Kansas City, Missouri. Their perfumes are made exclusively from plant aromatics. From the brand - "Although mainstream culture presents perfume as a cosmetic to conceal other scents or to make us more attractive, we seek instead to create a sensory ritual that provides a connection to nature through its ability to communicate with our senses. We find natural perfume to be genderless and feel that the scent signature of our skin should be complemented, not hidden. Most of all, For Strange Women perfume is intended be worn as a personal indulgence and source of inspiration."
Olfactory Obsessed - "I think of the viscosity and sweetness of a slow dripping molasses. This is definitely a dark sweet scent but not overpoweringly sweet. The citrus of the blood orange and bergamot cuts through what otherwise would have been a sickly sweetness giving the scent some balance. As the day wears on, it morphs into something familiar but I can’t quite pinpoint what it is."
Indiescent Library - "Very classic scent. It’s hard to pick out individual notes, though tobacco and immortelle really shine to me. It’s heady and a little dry, with a sweet base."
The Floraesthetic - "This all natural perfume possesses a strong, full-bodied tobacco that is more dry and smoky than sweet. Vanilla and violet simply add more curves to this voluptuous fragrance which boldly makes its presence known. Decadence and Debauchery ultimately settles down a bit, and gets smoother and sweeter as immortelle coats itself over tempered woods and dry tobacco. I’ve never been one to enjoy the maple aspect of immortelle, but in this composition it’s so well harmonized with balsams that it’s more bittersweet than sugary, a perfect ending for this gorgeous perfume."
