Black Cat Posted March 28, 2016 Share Posted March 28, 2016 Opal's Joie de Vivre Blackcat came up with some very clever combos this month. The first, a love letter to her precious little Opal crafted of fleshy black coconut overlaid with green grasses, a touch of linen, and a trio of fuzzy animalic musks. This really has a lovely warm skin and clean fur kind of vibe that surprised me with it's authenticity. Love! COCONUT ~ Chastity, protection, purification, receptivity. GRASSES ~ Wishes granted, enhances psychic powers, protection. LINEN ~ Luck, healing, protection, return of lost love. MUSK ~ Self confidence and strength, sexual attractant, heightens passions and arousal. I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet, since I've been wearing it a lot! I love it, and I also think that if I can let some of the bottles age, they will become even more spectacular. When this goes on wet, the linen really dominates it, and is a bit raw. What this does, though, is call up an immediate association for me with the town swimming pool from when I was a kid! This stage only lasts a few minutes, and the longer the dry down, the more the linen recedes to the background and coconut comes forward. Suddenly it's summer -- damp towels laid out on the sun-warmed grass, fresh air and clear blue skies. Just magic! It's so hard to describe this without sounding quite weird, but the whole thing settles into the loveliest milky clean scent you can imagine. It's in the family of Invi's October Laundry, which I loved, but a summer rather than a fall scent. I will totally be able to wear this to work, and it really just carries the best snuggly clean little dog vibe with it. Thank you so much, Mara!
