Kuchisake-onna (Japanese Black Dahlia)

Post by Boudicca » Fri Oct 02, 2015 9:12 pm

A blend which could not be prettier: dragon's blood, white musk, white sage, angelica leaf, ginger, vetiver, and sweet patchouli. This is a resinous perfume.

A particularly creepy story of a woman who appears before you in a surgical mask. What you can see of her is ravishing. Her hair, eyes and nose are perfect. She demands in a raspy and oddly breathy way that you tell her she is beautiful, she makes this demand with such passion that she is shaking and she takes you by the arm and has a crushing hold on you. Tell her she is beautiful and she will drop the mask and you will see that her mouth is carved from ear to ear and she looks like a jack-o-lantern. She will yell,"How do you like me now?!?" Your horrified expression will be enough to enrage her and she will kill you for spite.

If you don't tell her she is beautiful, she will kill you for rage.

She is said to stalk the streets of Tokyo.

Fabienne managed to write a story in perfume.
At first like the woman in the story this perfume seems innocent, herbal, fresh with an aromatherapy quality. But there is a sharp edge underneath like the chirurgical mask the woman wears.
Then you have a second phase when the scent changes, the woman drop the mask. It doesn't last long, maybe five minutes but I don't like that phase at all. The perfum is almost unpleasant.
The final phase is a resinous blend, more that the sum of its parts.

Everyone should try this one. I've never smelled anything like this.

This sounds as intriguing as the story!

I agree with Mina, this is truly unique. I love it in the vial, fresh and clean without being soapy (probably the ginger and tea). On my it is resinous with a strange note lingering the background that kind of reminds me of...licorice? but is definitely not actually licorice. Very interesting stuff.
