Stereoplasm The Velveteen Stranger was part of the Easter Bunnies Spring Mini-Collection from 2018, described as "a mysterious masculine scent in celebration of Easter bunnies." Notes of stolen peaches, yellow marshmallow, chopped cedar, blackberry aftershave and cigar smoke.
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.
Indie Scent Library - "Have to say, this is easily in my top 3. The peaches and blackberry blend together nicely for a kind of juicy smell that reminds me of a darker Mossy Peach from Hexennacht. I wouldn’t say this is “Gourmand” on me, as it’s more like the fruit on the branch than in a dish. Then comes the cigar smoke and cedar, which is so rich and thick but balanced by the fruit. I don’t detect marshmallow but I suspect it keeps the smoke from being too harsh."
Reddit - "This is a great scent! Just to the masculine side of androgynous. It’s sweet and sultry and kind of hypnotic… but not foody. I was once told that all Cake songs are either about a car, the devil, a woman or some combination of the above. This is a Cake song about the devil. I’m definitely gonna try and get ahold of a bigger bottle!"
Reddit - "Very realistic peach, fresh picked with a faintly green note that makes me think of peach fuzz. Stereoplasm does realistic fruit notes so well! I sometimes amp cedar, but the cedar here is a nice gentle supporting note that adds a unisex quality to it, balancing with the aftershave. I get just a hint of smoke at the edge for depth, and it sort of weaves itself in between the other notes with varying intensity. This is really well done, and I can see why it's a favorite."
Reddit - "You ever wanted to smell like Luciver from The Wicked + The Divine? Because I'm pretty sure this is what she smells like. This is rich. Intoxicating. Outstandingly androgynous - sweet, tart, and silky, but also cologney, with a barely-identifiable touch of dark dirtiness. This is silvery-white silk on black velvet, with accents of deep, rich purple, and a cigar delicately perched between two fingers. The main star of the scent is that blackberry aftershave, which is possibly one of the most delicious notes i've ever smelled: dark and tart and smooth and whipped-smelling, with a fuminess to it from the 'aftershave' part of it that makes it smell like a hair care product. At first, that's basically all I pick up on, but after about 10 minutes of wear, the peach note blooms as well, blending beautifully with it, giving the scent a juicy richness. (I'm also happy that this is a peach note that doesn't go acrid on me, as maaaany of them do.) The marshmallow, cedar, and cigar notes are supporting players, giving the scent hints of thick, foody sweetness, a faint swirl of smoke to balance the sweeter notes, and a smooth, blonde-smelling woody base, none of which overpower the aftershave or peaches until the dry-down, where the latter two come out more. Doesn't have much sillage, but wears loud and clear on my wrist.
