forget me nots

Jack [bpal]

Initially- buttery fruit. Almost like a punch smell. Maybe a light spice smell. Buttery smell starts to fade quickly and the fruity smell is stronger. Starts fading to a sweet slightly spicy peach. Not at all unpleasant. I'm not usually into the fruit smells but this has a sweet slight butteryness to it that helps.
It reminds me of a warm peach pie.

I may have to try it again to decide if it's a keeper but for now it's going in the stay pile.

Tezcatlipoca [bpal]

Initially - chocolate and leather. Then it starts to have a touch of that... old icky perfume smell that some of them seem to have on me. I don't have a good description for what that means exactly. I might be imagining it on this one though. It has a sharp smell. The chocolate is definitely underneath it. As though the room is filled with leather and wood and dirt... and in there is this tiniest hint of chocolate hidden somewhere.

I think I would like to smell this on a guy.

Tezcatlipoca is the Master Magician, a trickster god and shapeshifter, governing all worldly matters, and is also the Great Tempter, seducing men into evil acts and subsequently punishing them for their transgressions. Deep cocoa laced with patchouli, leather armor, ritual incense, and a touch of Xochiquetzal’s flowers.
