luna65 Posted August 18, 2010 Share Posted August 18, 2010 This was all The Naughty Jester's doing, of course, and as with any good storyteller he had a good one to inspire me, so all kudos and huzzahs to him. But I was also inspired by an episode of The Twilight Zone called "The Grave," an Old West tale of revenge from beyond the veil (and one of the players is a gorgeous young James Best *sigh*). Onto the scent...when I first sniffed it, as I noted, it was mainly booze and dusty sage for me, and now that it's settled down and aged a little bit the booze is very strong in the vial. It sort of reminds me of scents like BPAL's Schwarzer Mond or Arcana's The Ulda with the "evil Dr. Pepper" or sassafras type of thing going on. But the spices bloom immediately on me, to the exclusion of anything else for a while. A very masculine sort of spice, of course. In the drydown other elements emerge eventually, but sadly the leather is not really there for me at all. In the end it's a spicy smoky kind of outdoors scent, I suppose. If this was just leather and booze and smoke it would make me so happy, but that's what I have Down & Dirty for, after all. Those who like the hot spice blends on themselves or their menfolk should try this, but I'm interested to know how it smells on people who might not amp the spice. Speaking of leather and booze, when I pitched this blend to the woobie as one which OMG YOU MUST TRY THIS FOR ME he said, "Why are you always trying to get me to smell like booze? We have a bad enough reputation as it is, you know." But the catch-22 of that is when I remind him that he does in fact enjoy a tipple he always says, "Well I have to, don't I?" And there are a few interpretations of that statement, of course, but I'm going with the tribute to his national character. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
