Warrior

Warrior was SUPER soapy right out the bottle. Interestingly enough, one wrist is more astringent for me than the other (my left wrist on both perfumes I tried today). Drydown was nicer, but still pretty much straight soap, with a hint of men's aftershave. What's REALLY interesting is that the same e...

Capezzoli di Venere (Valentines 2011/Dark Matter)

In the bottle, Capezzoli smells like dark bitter cocoa and amber. That suits my steampunk mood today, so I'm slathering it on. On the skin, Capezzoli hides the chocolate for a few minutes, concentrating on a slightly astringent smell, almost papery or cardboard-ish. If this is the hazelnut, it's a v...

Sex in Heaven (Yule 2010)

Description Coconut, vanillas (two fabulous types: Mexican and Tahitian), and a lashing of sandalwood. Glory, this is heaven! My Impressions In the bottle, it smelled VERY strongly sweet - almost caramelly cloying, with the vanilla and coconut. After I put it on, it was briefly strong cocunutty swee...

Shipping perfume internationally

My husband tried to ship a package containing Possets (and chocolate and tea, but those didn't cause problems) to Germany (from the U.S.) He was told by the postal worker that shipping perfume internationally was prohibited, but I know that Fabienne ships to other countries. Can anyone clarify so th...

Cri de Coeur

I tried it again today and I can smell the toasted coconut now that I'm looking for it. Definitely not the suntan lotion coconut, or coconut flavoring, but more a true coconut. Plus the Nag Champa and a very slight perfuminess or powderiness as forspecial noted. Just as gorgeous the second time as t...

Cri de Coeur

I didn't get a strong coconut vibe from it either! There's a gentle and pleasant scent that makes me think of incense, but not in the nose-wrinkling way. I guess that's the nag champa? That and equal parts warm sweetness is what I get from this. It lasted a good amount of time and had good (but not ...

Which of The States Possets do you love and Why/

Oregon is my favorite thus far. Such a gorgeous orange-ish scent, but one with depth and the ability to last. No candy or cleaners here.

Fabienne, How would we "build" a corset if we don't want an entire bottle of each fragrance? Using the comments? For example, if I wanted an Indigo (Color) corset with Coutil (Fabric), Cotton Laces (Lace), and Frilly Garters (Trim) would I just put a single bottle in the cart and then deta...
