An answer to the question: Why use clove oil in a dentist's office?
Lush DEAR JOHN lists clove as its first note, and not without reason. This composition boasts a very strong dose of clove oil--everything made by this house is dripping in essential oils--so much so that the other main notes, vetiver, coriander, coffee, juniper, and Simon's favorite, lemon oil, all seem pretty low key by comparison.

By comparison. The initial application of DEAR JOHN makes me think of some sort of home fragrance potpourri, but as the clove gains strength, it takes over all perceived olfactory space, making it impossible for me to concentrate on anything. This could be a virtue, of course, under certain circumstances, for example, as one sits in a dentist's chair at the mercy of a stranger with the power to drill directly into your central nervous system. So, yes, clove oil has an added benefit--beyond its efficacy as a topical anesthetic. Clove oil will take your mind off of everything else as it penetrates into the marrow of your bones.

As a perfume, DEAR JOHN fits right in with this house's generally rough-hewn, heavy-handed line-up.

Citric, light earthy (and initially smoky) freshness, spiced up with clove, supported by subtle woody notes.
