Stereoplasm Copper Kettle was part of the Butterflies are Free Winter Collection 2019. Inspired by Dickens novels, it has notes of smoldering embers, wood smoke, newspaper kindling, imperial black tea held by flannel mittens and lavender scones.
Stereoplasm are small batch and hand blended with a high concentration of fragrance in fractionated coconut oil. They use a combination of natural, synthetic and house-distilled materials.
Reddit - "When I first smelled Candle in the Window, I said "Honey!". Here, I said "Tea!". To me, this is strong black tea spiked with lots of honey and quite a bit of lemon. I don't really pick up on the other notes, though I can detect some lavender. It's not what I expected, but it's right up my alley."
Reditt - "Newspaper ink, tea, woodsmoke, a wooly fuzziness and a wee hint of lavender. It really does smell like burning newspapers, which I find pretty impressive. Another very unique combination. Recommend this one if you’re into smoky and inky perfumes."
Reddit - "This a really dreamy scent. It’s warm tea with a sharp metal edge. The lavender is soft and fuzzy. I don’t get much smoke but it could be contributing to the metallic edge I do get. Copper isn’t listed as a note but I smell it and I’m related to a lot of electricians and used to strip copper wire for extra spending money so I fell pretty confident saying that. However, the metallic edge is not overwhelming or unpleasant. There is a smell that reminds me of scones, specifically the ones with coarse sugar on top. Evokes a certain thick buttery crumbliness associated with scones. I don’t fully understand how Stereoplasm managed to convey this with scent. It is a weirdly specific smell. Light purple and hazy. It’s a relaxing but not a sleepy scent."
Indie Scent Library - "This is very black tea forward on me. The lavender scones and flannel really come out after a half hour. It smells like when you burn newspaper and I looooove it. I can’t believe it! This reminds me of fires in my friend’s backyard in high school."
