Today from the Box of Squee: Eisheth Zenunim
This is one of the 13 Grindhouse Ladies scents from Act IV of Carnaval Diabolique ("Dead and Live Girls!"). I have a decant coming of this, but I got early frimped when I bought an unloved bottle of La Vita Nuova. The description:
Honey, ambergris, neroli, white peach, patchouli, and cocoa absolute.
In the imp: Peach, honey and neroli. Sweet, very girlish.
On wet: The peach disappears. The honey dives down. Cocoa, ambergris, patchouli, and quite honestly, a little piss come to the fore.
Dry: I shall report back later.
Reporting back later: Sir says it smells of apricots. Thankfully the piss is gone. (Whilst it may smell like Paris, it's not my thing.) Cocoa, peach, honey, patchouli and neroli, with a little ambergris, in that order. I like it, though I don't think I'll go for a bottle. I have another imp coming, so I'll dump them both in a roller bottle and top it off with jojoba oil. Save the vials as sniffies to give away.
