Adamus (Spring 2009)

Post by gypsyjolie »

wet: iced tea with lemon, maybe iced green tea with lemon? A bit sharp.

drying: Sweetish, warmer and more mellow than I expected from the first sniff. Starting to get something straw-like or hay-like. Smells like summer. A yellow sunny scent to my nose, but not girly or overtly floral.

full drydown: I think the lemony scent is actually ginger as this scent warmed up on my skin so much, and it reminds me of Silver Ginger with a lighter touch and a hint of wood. This is a clean, warm, happy scent. I'd call this unisex.

This is one of my absolute favorite Possets! I agree that it is unisex. On me, it is a slightly sweet (almost plummy), expensive-smelling perfume. I can maybe detect a"dry hay"-ish note after an hour or so if I really try hard. I wish I could describe this more, but I think partly what I like about it is that it is so indescribable. I can wear this year round, and it really is awesome.

On my skin this is sharp bright, vegital, greedy, grassy.

Very low throw this hides out in my skin. It's interesting. I'll have to do a more slathery test later.

Reminds me of a classic man's scent from the 60's--perhaps Bay Rum, with a touch of powder. It's not quite my style, but it's a very pleasant, unisex, subtle scent that I would recommend sampling in case it works for you.

In the vial - Green cologne?

Wet - Sweet but certainly not sugary. Grassy but not a lawn grass scent. It's definitely living up to the claim of hay; it reminds me of growing up in a farming community and the smell of warm, drying hay. The green moss evokes almost a fuzzy feel. Overall, more masculine than feminine. Or perhaps firmly unisex despite the floral background?

Dry down - The moss dominates, but the hay and tobacco flower add a sexiness (I hesitate to use that word, but this is a fragrance I'd love to smell on other people). I do like the tobacco flower quite a lot. Something about this makes me smell tea, or maybe I only think I smell tea? There's an earthy smell that's not *dirt* or dirty, but hmm... I'm not sure what it is. I feel like I'm not describing my experience very well at all.

In the end it's too much moss for me? I think it's the moss that doesn't quite agree with my skin, but I'm not sure as I don't wear many perfumes with moss as a note. I enjoyed Adamus wet and as it dried, but not fully dry. It might do better on my clothes or in a scent locket.

On me, like others have said this has a green, grassy kind of quality with just a hint of sweet lemony-vibe. It actually reminds me a little of citronella, so it does have a bug-spray sort of feel to it but is still quite pleasant. It's very fresh. Don't know if I would wear it alot but it is like a littel ray of sunshine on this harsh winter day we are having here.
