The Rustik Apothecary
May Queen is a dizzying dance around the Maypole. In the beginning, you're taken in by the vivid florals and greens of a flower crown, but as the dance intensifies, other exotic notes emerge: laced mead and an iridescent blend of musks. This fragrance is disorienting and euphoric - a wild green floral with the heady aroma of youth. May Queen has notes of geraniums, daisies, meadow greens, vetiver, mead and a unique blend of red and blue musks. Based on the movie Midsommar.
Strange Fire & Fumery perfumes are indie, small batch handmade. This is a perfume oil.
Reddit: I love Midsommar so I’m expecting this fragrance to DELIVER. In the bottle: Daisies and mead. Nice. Wet: Geranium is definitely taking the lead. Very green. The mead is a REALLY nice note to have in the background. Oddly reminds me of a clover patch in bloom. Dry: I’ve lost the mead note, sadly. The florals have balanced out, and I think gone (a tiny bit) powdery, but overall this still smells light and green. I believe I am finally picking up on the musks. They’re very unique, and make me want to keep sniffing this to try and figure it out. I can’t quite place what I’m smelling. I like this to sniff, because it’s puzzling. 5/10 for me personally (It’d be 9/10 if the mead stuck around), but don’t let me discourage you. If you like “weird” or unique florals, you’d probably enjoy this one. It’s very different.
