Just got this in the mail and I know it has to settle. Initially, I get vanilla frosting with spice, maybe nutmeg. Really soft sandalwood in the background. After about 10 minutes, the spice came to the forefront (definitely clove, maybe nutmeg). Mara, what is the spice? I feel like a mulled vanilla chai latte! YUM!
If you are a fan of our Ebil-ish or Pashazade style scents - GRAB! IMMEDIATELY! This blend is a little darker and more resinous than those, crafted on a base of the last of one my best aged patchouli oils, layered with creamy vanilla and balsam, and made WOW with exotic spice EOs of clove bud and cardamom. Review: In the beginning it is a little sharp. Could be the balsam or the clove but it settles down very quickly. I currently have a headache and scents can really set those off. This didn't tip into the "wash off immediately before the pounding intensifies" category so I am happy about that. Its spicy. It doesn't have that typical Egyptian incense smell but would layer very nicely with it. The cardamom and spice definitely have an exotic feel but this is softer, perhaps because of the vanilla. It is one of those scents that I really want to layer and play with. I think it would be amazing with something woodsy, interesting with something sweeter or great with something with cinnamon. I think I like it.
