Spiced woods with a hint of plum

I heard this was getting discontinued and had to pick it up. Luckily I found my opportunity with a reliable eBay seller, but I feel bad for the people who are going to miss out on this absolute gem from Tom Ford. Plum Japonais to me is actually pretty weak on the plum. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still there, especially in the opening, but it mostly just comes and goes in wafts of slightly sour, purply sweetness throughout the life of the fragrance. What really carries the fragrance is a smoky wood, amber, and slight vanilla, spice, and liquor notes. Both parts of the fragrance independently smell great, but when they mix the scent is absolutely magical, I just wish it happened more often. I’ve noticed it the best personally when I’m walking and the wind is blowing on my back, carrying the spritz on my neck to my nose. Perfect for fall and early winter and I have no regrets with my purchase, and if you happen to have the opportunity to, try before you buy.

Comme Un Carrousel - Strangers Parfumerie

Comme Un Carrousel Essence of the county fair
Bright and bubbly, the smell of a late summer fairground, and the feeling it gives you. This fragrance is nostalgic, not in the typical way where it’s something that you actually remember fondly, like a good tv show from your childhood...
