androstenol Posted July 21, 2015 Share Posted July 21, 2015 This was a Private Edition for July 2015, requested by our own Forum Member Blackcat. From her own description, she wanted something earthy, animalistic, and natural. She asked for red musk, red patchouli, and ozone, and left the last ingredient up to "Commander Fox", which turns out to be "the dry earthy scent of fallen leaves on a forest floor". First off, I had a kneejerk reaction to the name of this PE and ordered a FB without knowing the ingredients. I absolutely adore the Totem series and have several friends who identify with animals, myself included. The label is darling. Wet, I get mostly a soft soapy impression. As it dries, the musk emerges. If my nose were better, I might be able to tell that it's red musk but I'm not that sensitive. Soon after, the patchouli slides into a partner position next to the musk, and I love me some patchouli so this was very welcome. The red patchouli note is interesting and I find it to be gorgeous with the red musk. What surprised me though is how soft the 'earthy, fallen leaves' part of the scent is. The 'soapy smell' gives way to a soft powdery earthy scent. Closing my eyes, I get a baby animal. Something of the wild, to be protected. My teenage son liked this immediately: "Oh, it's so FRESH". This is a solid PE offering, on par with the Totem Animal releases. I could see myself wearing this either for work ( I have a high stress job as a supervisor and the throw of this is mild and work-friendly) or in the evening for comfort, meditation, or bedtime. I cannot compare this to any of the other woodsy scents, and I have tried a few by now. This is unique and soooooo lovely. If there was going to be a Totem Animals 2.0 release, I strongly suggest this as one of them. Thank you BlackCat !!!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
