I’m just going to lump together the rest of the samples I received in my order, because doing it one by one sure is more annoying than doing it all together, plus I’m sure it’s easier for everyone to read through as well 🙂
This is so incredibly smooth, so smooth I feel like licking this scent off from where I’ve dabbed it on xD It smells like dark chocolate EXACTLY and there’s some spice in it, which I can’t figure it out what it is. I’m an amateur here afterall. If you enjoy chocolate, warm, smooth fragrances, Falchion will be waiting for you. I feel so calm and damn good looking when I have this on.
This was a bonus sample that I received. My first thoughts of this weren’t good. We can’t like everything right? I still can’t figure out what it is I’m smelling, and it’s even harder for me to describe. I know this is meant to be salty with some leather in it, and I guess it’s the salt that I’m smelling straight off the bat, or maybe it’s the leather. I wish I knew what it was 😦 Mr D likes this more than I, and at first he thought it smelled like Dr Pepper…he can have some pretty unique olfactory associations at times, but then again, I don’t really like Dr Pepper and avoid it, which is pretty easy to do in Australia considering you have to go to specialty lolly shops to find it. Anyway, as it dries down the smell I picked up at the beginning begins to subside and I smell a fresher marine type scent, which is more my cup of tea. I still need more time with Inked, because it has be quite baffled xD
Oh yeah is this a sweet one. The description tells no lie – buttercream cany sweet. There’s something else I smell in there which isn’t candy sweet, and is more like a fresh scent, maybe this is the cider? I’ve never had cider in my life, so have no clue if that’s what I’m smelling. I’m not sure if I would say it’s foody, I haven’t smelled enough fragrances to know yet, but it does have a food like sweetness, but it won’t make you feel like you’ve rubbed a cake on your wrist.
So fresh, and to me it smells soapy – but I love that 😀 This make me think of winter – not crappy Australian winter, but what I would imagine a trip to a snowy town would smell like. It makes me feel very calm and tranquil, and gives me a little shiver up my spine too 😛 To me, this smells complex, because I can’t identify a thing 😛 I want to say it smells floral, than I get the soapy scent coming through. I love Monstre Delicat and have ordered this in full size which will be on it’s way soon I hope!
I hate to be a broken record – but this is fresh 😉 It reminds me a little of cologne, in the sense that it is a little sharp, but it’s nothing like an icky aldehyde, it’s a natural sharpness you might get from strong scented flowers or freshly mowed grass. There’s something floral to this, but it’s rather delicate. If this scent had a colour it’d be yellow. No idea if that helps but my brain is just screaming yellowyellowyellowyellow 😛
Passionfruit! It smells like a sour passionfruit too, not just those sticky sweet ones and it has some citrus in it too. I really am a sucker for anything citrus/non berry fruit scented. Even thought this is a fruity scent, it’s not overwhelmingly sweet *cough*ralph by ralph lauren*cough*. It’s an easy scent to wear, and you’re guaranteed to get a mood boost from putting it in on. I ordered one of the bitsy vials – which is the largest size this fragrance comes in.
Bear in mind, I am a complete fragrance novice. I don’t know the jargon, and I don’t even know what certain scents smell like individually. All I can offer are my initial thoughts and reactions. I highly recommend Darling Clandestine, and I’ve made 2 subsequent orders after these samples, which even more to come I know 😛
