Fragrantica - "A cloud of smoky incense, then thick honey and tree sap. The drama up front gives way to trampled flowers and singed tree bark. Intense and beautiful."
Fragrantica - "But The Dark Side? It's just kind of perfect all the way through. It's syrupy but powdery. Sweet but very pleasant. It's also spicy and woody and floral but very pleasant. It's sensual and sexy but also very pleasant. It's incredibly complex but sooo pleasant. For me, it's a cabinet of full bottles worthy."
Fragrantica - "This is literally sex in a bottle. Dark, mysterious, incense, vanilla, amber goodness. Definitely unisex and will make anyone that wears it feel like a sexy god/goddess. Projects well and has amazing longevity. I put the tiniest bit on my wrist before bed and could smell it this morning."
Fragrantica - "I love the sensual, delicious golden syrup lure of every fragrance from this house. This opens with a fleeting grassy note, before the iris and violets come through. This isn’t a light, powdery or floral scent, it’s musky, resinous, chewy and gently animalic. It’s like salted caramel with creamy orris butter, violets and iris. A divine, semi-gourmand floral."
