Longing for the sea!
"Mayday mayday..depth sounder down..
try to land..
see an island made of Haribo TropiFrutti"...

..Dracula was lonely...and so he escaped more and more often into daydreams to escape the dark, cold and musty cave where he dwelled during the day.
How he would love to spend the days, in far more southern climes...

Through the centuries of isolation, his self-esteem and his zest for life had suffered badly.

The vitamin D deficiency did the rest..pale pale skin, dark circles under his eyes, hair loss...what had become of the once proud Vlad..
It could not go on like this..
If he couldn't go to the South Seas, at least the South Seas should come to him..

Today my life begins anew!
...

As night fell, he flew purposefully to the small grocer's shop in his county seat of Bran. Slipping nimbly into the store through a window that was ajar, he maneuvered swiftly into the sparsely stocked fruit section.
Bananas, figs and some funny looking fruit in the shape of a star, had caught his attention, the store did not have much else to offer.
He stoutly grabbed a stray fruit net and eagerly scooped the fruit into the bag.
Through the window he had now opened, he disappeared, bag packed, silently into the night.

Back in his cave, his heart throbbed with excitement as vigorously as he had not experienced since the year 1336, when he took his first sip of blood.
In an instant, his excitement turned to sheer horror...Blood!..

Bananas, figs, star fruit???
What had he been thinking...since his transformation, he couldn't eat anything else, only blood.
Humans called this strange disease "fructose intolerance"...whether he was also afflicted with it, he didn't know...only he was unable to eat such a thing.
His horror gave way to sheer rage and so he hurled the net into the furthest corner -his expression stiffened and with a gesture of disgust he disappeared into the depths of the cave system.

Minutes, hours, days passed without even a sign of life from the cave..
Suddenly, after 2 weeks of silence, something stirred, but it wasn't Vlad, a family of martens had made themselves at home in his absence.
Attracted by the scent of rotting fruit, a pair of martens now lived there, what had once belonged to the proud Dracula.

The animals were just feasting on the remains of the muddy fruit when, coming out of the darkness, a shadow tore one of the martens without warning into the same.

A short yelp and crack was heard, then silence.
The other animal just managed to save itself with a spirited leap into a crevice.

The shadowy figure stepped out of the darkness...it was Vlad.... emaciated and close to madness - the long pointed teeth flashed from the lifeless body of the marten...
Sadness was in his red under-rimmed eyes..
Had he really thought he could escape his fate and want more from life?

He shuddered at his own thoughts and.........woke up!

Darkness had come in over the little town...
....a strange dream...how long had he been asleep?

No matter...he knew only one thing:

The hunt is on!

Wet earth smell in a bottle
This perfume is the smell of wet earth, of a wall with humidity, with some other things.
The first 45 minutes are the best, we have a lot of wet earth, that makes you feel as if you were in a cave, soon a banana note joins, and thus the fruity component rises until it reaches 25 minutes where we will have wet earth, banana and fig, at this point we have a quite unique, pleasant combination, but that has nothing to do with the original idea or at least the one I expected, it is as if the mixture had been unbalanced.

Soon the smell of wet earth dominate the mix again, which loses progressively the surrounding effect. About the performance, it projects for an hour and a half well and it last about 5 hours.

It has left me a bit cold, I expected more from "the original bat formula", where the best part is when the components go crazy, I personally love the smell of wet earth, and maybe if you use it on a rainy day listening to sad music you'll enter in a melancholic loop that will mark that day for the rest of your life, but it stills being just the smell of humid earth bottled with little usability.

1000+ lakes wonderland
I have a lake lake house in Mazury district/Poland and from late autumn til early spring the weather is quite severe in terms of humidity. There is an old basement there, underground, it used to be a place where pottery was done, with an old klin. Now it houses bats for this hard period of the year. And this story brings me to conclusion - the basement smells exactly like Night Flyer: authentic, connoting these little creatures hanging and sleeping on dampish walls. It is also about November soil with remains of rotten leaves, light air and low sky full of steal clouds.
Night Flyer fragrance paradoxically feels me with patience and hope that from time to time one needs to stop and rest. And that long days and warm nights will come back.
This is an illustration of fin de siècle but with happy end. Circle of life.

Olympic Orchids Artisan Perfumes / Night Flyer
Beautiful and unique. Unique even. NICHE at your fingertips.
I think I'll invest in a batman mask, a cape ... and start sleeping somewhere tied upside down to the ceiling. An interesting combination of dark notes of earth, mold, cold, skin, musk and finally - banana (not sweet, but young, unripe). Something amazing.
The new BAT Zoologist compared to this one (Ms. Covey's original work) is a light brush of an immature bat's wing. NIGHT FLYER is a dark grotto with lots of mature and experienced bats all over the summer. I recommend

Tropical juice in a cave
This is so wonderfully weird. It has tropical fruits in, I believe they should be mangos but I get more tropical fruit juice experience. It feels like you would pop open a can of it in a wet dark cave. The scent of the juice mixes with the scent of stone and cave mold. It should not work by this description but it does and really really well. It is captivating. On my skin it lasts all day, on clothes much longer. True masterpiece.

Initially dusty fruity-sweet, this challenging, yet unique spicy green-earthy Fall fragrance settles to a slightly animalic dry-woody base.
