You know when you get a fragrance that is so delicious, so intoxicating, so all encompassing, that you find yourself sniffing your wrist with that closed eye glee of rapturous contentment while your office companions wonder what is wrong with you. That pretty much describes what I've look like for the last month since purchasing this scent. I really can't get enough of it.
It's alluring, subtle yet strong, both masculine and feminine, also somehow very what the color of dark purple should smell like. It's like being in a garden at midnight surrounded by nigh blooming flowers with a full moon over head and a gentle breeze wafty their scent all around you.
Okay, I'm not the greatest at describing scents so here's the specific break down from Illamasqua for those scent-philes out there.
Top notes: Black Davana, Opium Flower and Belladonna bewitch the senses into uncontrollable lust and passion. Heart notes: Poison Hemlock, Datura and Queen of the Night blossom, caress and kiss. Base notes: Aromas of Frankincense, Oud and Myrrh, addictively mesmerises and captures the senses.
The snail is such a cute touch.
