Here’s a thing. A version of Lalique Encre Noire for people with too much money to burn… Also for people like me with less money to burn but an insatiable love for that sweet dark wood.

Okay.. I’m not even going to bother wasting my time writing an intro for this. Absolute dross. What’s going on with some of these designer releases this year?!
We’re gonna check out one of the newer Penhaligon’s efforts today with their latest Trade Routes fragrance, Cairo. Saffron and Rose and.. well, not a lot else really.
Incoming Sunday Sample, this week its xerjoff, or possibly Sospiro with Wardasina or maybe Rosso Afgana. Settle on a goddam name Momo JEEZ!
Here’s my first impressions and longer review of Beaufort Londons perfume from their Hell or High Water collection, 1805 Tonnerre, supposedly based on scenes from the battle of trafalgar, but more like scenes from the Shadow over Innsmouth, it’s absolute dark brutality in a bottle.
As part of a two part Lime thing, I decided to chose two summer fragrances based on Lime which covers all budgets. Here’s the cheapy Lime, only cheap in cost IMO. I picked this up for £7 delivered which is bananas.
This is the second part fo my summer lime reviews. This one, Batucada by L’artisan Parfumeur is a bit more expensive, but is a really great and interesting scent for the summer with Lime as a starring note.
More like a trainwreck than a shipwreck, here’s my review of Beaufort Londons Fathom V, a fragrance that is so green, you’ll never want to go into a garden EVER AGAIN.
The second of my Zoologist samples that I picked up this week, Dragonfly. In complete contrast to Moth, this one is a light, sparkling floral of Peony and Lotus.
I got a couple of Zoologist samples through the post today, so here are my first impressions of the first wear of Moth, a dense, dark, fragrance full of smoke and grim filth.
