Turkish coffee, golden raisins, the warm, spiced residue of sweet resin on her incense burner... and a faint hint of the Count himself lingering in her chambers.

in the bottle: worryingly nutty with overripe fruit
wet on my skin: cigars and incense and very sweet fruit. a little figgy. the cigars and incense make me WANT to close my eyes and relax to this but the sweetness puts me on edge.
drying: everything blends together into a super pleasant lightly-sweet fruity cigar scent. as it fades, it's mostly a smokey raisin smell. i never really get any coffee scent from it, but it's very lovely!

When I first put it on, it's all cigars. I was scared, but I let it sit on my skin and I'm glad I did! The raisins and sweet resin come through after about 3-5 minutes. Very warm and full of fire-side rrrrromance. It's so romantic, it gets some extra rolls on its 'r's.

This is one of my favourite oils on the site! I love the sweet/bitter contrast, and it's a really nice evening/dinner kind of scent.
The grape/raisin and incense combo is wonderful here. It's sweet and rich, backed up by a dark, bitter coffee layer underneath. I would say the dominant note for me is the sweet grape, then resin, and then coffee as the faintest, but they're all pretty even overall. I'm saying grape instead of raisin because it has the sharp sweetness of fresh grapes with none of the juiciness, and though the scent has a bit of a dusty, hazy side, it doesn't seem to be attached to the grape/raisin in particular.
Overall, totally awesome <3
