I've been having fun sample some of the "oldies but goodies" for the past year or two. I read about A'Suma in Scent and Subversion, and was very pleased to see this fragrance available from STC. It is a beautiful fragrance, even if it seems like some of the top notes have fallen away. It is warm and spicy and powdery and very lovely. I have worn it 3-4 days at work and I'd catch little whiffs of spice and wood and powder and it just elevated my mood so much. I wish I could afford to sample the extrait version of it but alas! Not until I win the lottery. It seems like A'Suma will soon be utterly extinct unless a cache of it is discovered somewhere. I think I will have to get another little vial of the stuff: It's worth it.
