Trivia moment: shortly after their discovery, there was a short but fierce fracas over what this quark and its partner quark would be named. We know them now as Top and Bottom, but they were nearly Truth and Beauty. We weep for this lost opportunity to make the poetry of particle physics sound properly poetic for once.
We've tried to make this quark's scent both bottom-y (not the one you sit on, that would be gross) and beautiful. Geranium, spicy ginger, vanilla custard, and a little bit of leather in just the right place.

I was after a vanilla scent... but apparently, on my skin, what I get is a strong, strong blast of leather... fading after an hour to a smell of furniture polish. I guess there's some ginger in there, but otherwise lightly flowery beeswax & amber spray-on furniture polish. It's rather disconcerting because I don't really want to smell like a mahogany desk! It also hangs around for ages - it's as strong on me in the evening as in the morning when I put it on. This might be nice on a guy, but it's not for me.

Of all the quarks, this one sounded the most appealing to me and I'm glad to say I was right. It's sweet but with a sharp sexy bite.

I absolutely love the ZOMG vanilla custard note <3 In this scent, the ginger and bit of leather give it a little zing, with the geranium making it all fresh and soft. Up close, it's more powdery and floral, and the vanilla custard really shines through in the throw. It's shy, sweet, fresh, and not foody at all. :)
My boyfriend says it smells like teddy bears on me, and I tend to agree. Love it!

This is a wonderful scent - feminine without being too sweet or too floral. To me it conjures images of a still pool of clear water, bordered by mosses and subtle, shy flowers. A little hidden, a little dark. I love it, and I wear it all the time.
