Take me in your mouth!
For those who want to know, here's apparently Winter of 99's brother. Black Vines doesn't scream apocalypse and cold wind by the log fire in the basket so much as it tells of comforting community, warm tea, and spicy biscuits.
More specifically, I was even asked what I was baking.

Overflowing warmth of cinnamon and anise flowed through the room, not disturbing but definitely massive and filling the space. Loud and ravening for attention.
Inconspicuous one remains with this piece of perfume art definitely not.

After about two hours, a very pleasant woody note comes with it, while cinnamon and anise withdraw. The fig is very nice underlining integrated. Ivy is present but as an accessory. More interesting is the woody tone, which adds to the said woody note.

Yes, the scent is black, dark, enveloping and all-consuming - at least to begin with - but above all it is daring and wonderful.
Then, after five hours, the room-filling work of art has turned into a body-hugging whisper.

Just definitely not for the warm days. Except for very brave

The dark days of the black vines
Are you wondering now that the liquorice snail on your table is beginning to unroll, to branch, to grow its branches into your space, searching and embracing itself, forming knotty black vines, pulsating like living veins? Do you feel the light blaze, the covered embers on your skin that form as it wraps its ethereal anise arms around your wrists, trembling and sowing countless cinnamon bodies? Their paralyzing presence roots you in space as if in a dream in which fir needles grow from the black vines and eucalyptic resins burst over the anise.
Now that you have stopped defending yourself, the rage of the ethereal streams calms down, incense grows like cloudy weather, ivy leaves grow underneath, tender, translucent and light green smelling, resembling the foliage of the wine deceptively. After a good hour the sharpness then becomes softer, the vine becomes richer with sweet figs, drops viscously from the ceiling balsamic intervals, connect the cinnamon corpuscles with the vanilla, which burns in waves over the wooden planks and after countless hours ends the spectacle, which appears in cold and dark days and skilfully unites its distant poles, tracks you down with lambent twigs in the room and leads like in the house of a snail to the middle

Anise, anise, anise... anise only
i like anise, I like pastis too. And I was very much looking forward to the bottling of Sunnyland, because I have read the fragrance pyramid and fragrance description or comments and statements about it and was enthusiastic. Thought that was exactly my scent. Heavy, spicy and incense. But unfortunately the scent on my skin only develops anise from beginning to end; no liqueur note, no ZImt, no incense, nothing fruity. It is a beautiful, wamer fragrance without question and fits perfectly into the cool season, but not to me, because unfortunately it develops too one-sided and then has more of essential oil for the fragrance lamp than exclusive niche fragrance. But what is remarkable is the durability...even after 7 hours it still smells like shortly after spraying on. I'll test him again to see if it changes on the third try. Otherwise the filling process may continue.

The Best Licorice Fragrance Ever
Black Vines by Kerosene certainly isn’t the first fragrance featuring licorice/anise blended with something else; there is licorice with lavender (Hermèssence Brin de Réglisse), licorice with rose and amber (Aoud Black Candy by Mancera), licorice with mint (Reglisse Noire by 1000 Flowers), and licorice with lemon (Caron Eau de Reglisse), to name a few. But this licorice with fir/balsam/cypress blend is, by far, the most intriguing and powerful of them all. (The drydown reminds me very much of Eau des Baux by L’Occitane, but Black Vines is much deeper, and richer, than Eau des Baux.) Black Vines is licorice and wintergreen on steroids! But of course, most people don’t like the smell of wintergreen, that familiar medicinal scent from muscle rub creams and Pepto Bismal, but this is exactly the reason I find it therapeutic.

Anise in a bottle. Or licorice, if you wish.

Dries down to a soft creamy biscuit-like vanilla and sandalwood, but the opening is as harsh and unpleasant as a truck stop urinal. Pass.
