Twyla Perfumes & Apothecary General Catalog Perfume Oil (Available)
A blend that's a bit on the androgynous, unisex side; a little bit sweet with exotic spices and a splash of bitter almond (smells rather like cherries), Roobios absolute, clove, saffron, musk (from plant sources) and a blend of incense notes. Impossible to pin down, this scent is one moment smoky and swirling with incense, the next sweet and almost leathery, the next brimming with deep, fruity black teas and rich tobaccos and spices. A very complex scent.
Musk seed, nagramotha, cardamom, dark patchouli, myrrh, clove, pomegranate accord, spice, amber and rose otto.
