The Strange South
The Strange South Burning Rain of Death features notes of damp wood and stone, ginger, pink peppercorn, cardamom, snuffed smoke and wormwood. It is a perfume oil.
The Strange South's perfumes are blended by hand and bottled in small batches. They are alcohol, paraben, phthalate, and cruelty-free; the only testing being on willing human subjects.
Reddit: Yet another blend that strangely reminds me of dogs at the outset, but at least this dog hair isn’t wet and smelly. That gently but quickly fades after a few minutes and the result is oh so pleasant. Everything is so well blended they melt into one another; all is soft and cozy. Ginger at the forefront, closely followed by peppercorn and cardamom and soft smoke. Wood and stone add depth and character. Wormwood may be the exception in that I either barely smell it or I simply don’t know what I’m looking for. Too cozy to associate with burning rain of death! Instead, yeah, a warm, snuggly dog. I’m picturing a golden retriever. Much later, wood, stone and smoke take the forefront and cool the scent down. So maybe the dog got up and left, but his presence lingers.
Indie Scent Library: I was worried about the ginger and cardamon, but this is so well blended I almost can’t detect them. Smells like the nicest damp wood in the best way possible. Almost sweet but not quite? Evokes happy spring feelings.
