Solstice Scents Lace Draped Spectre
Attic is the scent of an aged cedar chest filled with fine fabrics, exquisite lace-overlay dresses, heirloom linens and crocheted bits and pieces, forgotten in the attic of the manor house. The scent of this cedar chest and the soft mustiness of stored linens are touched with the beautiful, yet faded, perfume of the owner still detectable upon the fabric. A fine vanilla blend is paired with red cedar heartwood essential oil, aged sandalwood essential oil, cypress wood essential oil and the scent of dried rose petals pressed between brittle book pages.
Created as part of a collection of fragrances based on the fictional town of Foxcroft, Maine, Attic is an eau de parfum, edp.
SOLSTICE SCENTS ATTIC REVIEWS
Fragrantica: One of my favorite Solstice Scents is Manor. This is very similar, but more complex...I believe it's the cedar that adds more depth.
Indie Scent Library: This was suggested to me when I was looking for a cedar scent. The cedar is lovely, but it pulled really vanilla on my skin. A sophisticated and complex vanilla. Still ISO of my perfect cedar.
Indie Scent Library: Perfectly balanced cedar and sweet rose-vanilla. A softer rose than I’m used to from the SS blends I have – almost rosewater-like. I wouldn’t interpret this scent as dusty at all, but rather a bit sharp and tannic at point (like real fresh wood or fresh paper). Very elegant and inoffensive.
Indie Scent Library: My absolute favorite indie of all time. Attic has the most gorgeous cedar note I’ve ever smelled, blended with vanilla and a touch of rose. It makes me think of wearing a fur from my great- grandmother, who was ultra sophisticated and elegant. Definitely my most treasured and evocative fragrance.
Indie Scent Library: The cedar is definitely upfront in this but it’s not pencil shavings rather the pure smell of either the living tree or a freshly built cedar cabin. The floral note isn’t exactly readable as pure rose but rather a ghost of a floral perfume that you can’t quite name which weaves in and out, akin to the rose in Conjure Dark which morphs significantly depending on the person chemistry on the day. Really love this and had to buy an FB. Luckily I couldn’t detect any cypress which is a death note for me.
