Possets sale / swap destash

Possets for sale / swap! All bottles are 5mL and full unless indicated otherwise. I really want to clear out some space and see these go to good homes, hence the low prices. I will consider other Possets for swap unless it’s something I already have or know doesn’t work on me. Shipping is $3.50 for ...

Re: The High Born Damsel (Valentine 2012)

I had been on the fence about this one last Retour, and I'm on the fence about it again: full-bottle-worthy or no? It starts off as a comforting chocolate and mint scent. I don't own anything like it, and there's nothing else like it in the Possets collection - as far as I'm aware, that is. The choc...

Re: Silver Pomegranate

I'd encourage everyone who loves pomegranate and the Possets silver base to take advantage of Retour and give this one a try. I took out my decant from last year, and this scent has all the complexity and longevity that the reviewers above are referring to. This holds its own even in the face of Fab...

Re: Valentine Retour

Also eyeing Berenice and The Jester - would appreciate any input there as well! Jester is delicious. Put-a-silly-smile-on-your-face yummy. I ordered a slew of decants this time since I missed that boat last year. I'm looking forward to finally smelling Sappho after all the intriguingly varied comme...

Re: Valentine Retour

What are people's thoughts on Henry VIII's wives? I love Possets red musk, and love my bottle of Anne Boleyn. I'm considering Jane Seymour, Catherine of Aragon and Catherine Howard. As a side note, I remember trying Anne of Cleves last year. Don't have much recollection except I wasn't paticularly i...

Re: Yule Retour

I really love Possets rose scents, and am considering bind-buys of Rose Window, the Enormous Rose and Woman before Yule Retour comes down. What are the group's thoughts on these? Any help / thoughts will be appreciated :) The Possets rose scents I really love are 1000 Roses, Napoleon & Josephine...

Re: Diamond Dust (Yule 2011)

Musks - the sharp, clean soap kind - that really do convey the feeling of freshly fallen snow. It's primarily a "cold" fragrance - really does smell like snow - with a touch of citrus to convey not warmth but light. Starts off as a skin scent, grows potent, then grows back to mellow in an ...

Re: Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire

I echo the above - simple yet lovely. It starts off with a grounded lavender and, in a few hours, dries down to a skin-scent sandalwood. The beginning few hours are very similar to Lavender Girl. For that reason, I will *probably* forego a bottle (key word: probably), since I do have Lavender Girl. ...

Re: Yule Retour

Hi all, I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me the difference between Russian Dance and Gingerbread Whorehouse? Is one spicier/more foody than the other? Are they very similar? Thanks! The two are extremely different - at least on my skin. On me, Gingerbread Whorehouse is a mild gingerbread cake,...
