FULL DESCRIPTION

Who goes beside you into the forest on the darkest night ? In Victor Hugo’s poem, « À quoi songeaient les deux cavaliers dans la forêt », (What Two Horsemen Were Thinking in the Forest), the narrator says “ by my side, Hermann seemed to me like a shadow. ”

We all have shadows, even at night in the dark forest. You may call yours by another name : your invisible friend. Your conscience, your soul, maybe even your complementary ego. Your shadow could have a name, like Hermann. Or your shadow could be your perfume. This is your companion. You can argue with your companion, you can challenge your companion, you can test the boundaries of your own attitudes. You can debate the finer points of existence. But you cannot lose this companion, not ever. This is your alternative self. As you move through life and contemplate its meaning, you ask unanswerable questions. When you’re overwhelmed with uncertainties, look to your shadow. Maybe you’ll get a response. Maybe not. But at least you’ll have an interesting conversation.

Smells like my grandmother

Now, grandma always had amazing taste in fragrance… I am just not sure how I feel about this fragrance for myself.

A soothing scent for someone with chronic migraines and chronic pain

Okay, hear me out. This scent opens with a very mentholatum or muscle-rub esque smell, which I personally enjoy, but quickly dries down to be a spicy and clean scent, that gets sweeter over time. For many years I avoided perfume ever since a former coworker's daily perfume would give me a migraine; I assumed it must be true of all fragrances and not just her Spicebomb. But I now know I was wrong! This feels like my new go-to scent; I typically spray one spray on my clothes and steal sniffs throughout the workday, as needed for a burst of woody, spicy clarity.

At first application, I thought this scent was a bust. But after letting it sit for a few minutes, the smell became more and more appealing. It smells like a one-night stand at a gay bar, a mix of heavy brown liquor, and a cheeky grin from a bearded guy from across the dance floor. I’ll be buying this scent again and again!
