Slumberhouse Fjerne Extrat de Parfum is a gentle gourmand that utilizeds the earthy, cocoa powder qualities of patchouli paired with honeyed amber and vanilla, nuttiness, and and milkiness. It’s creamy, milky, and candy like coconut with gentle contact of vanilla and cocoa, whereas different occasions it’s dustier, earthier, and virtually bread-like with the way in which the milk and honey soaked into it. The drydown is characterised by mild muskiness and flippantly spiced, creamy woods and extra resinous sweetness.
It’s listed as having these notes: milk, honey, hazelnut, cedar, musk, wheat, amber, sandalwood, patchouli, feuilletine, tonka, carob, vanilla, cistus, styrax.
It opened with nutty, honeyed notes with a clean, creamy backdrop with fragrant cedarwood and spiced amber. It was softly candy, virtually like vanilla-honey milk bathtub, and creamy with clean nuttiness. There was a dry, cocoa powdered patchouli beneath, caught between earthy, dusty, and chocolaty; the vanilla introduced out the extra chocolaty tones.
After 20 minutes, Fjerne had a extra coconutty aroma; just like the meat of a coconut–creamy, milky, and candy–with touches of cocoa powder and darkish vanilla. It appeared to show and put on fairly carefully to my pores and skin about an hour in, which was a shock, and smelled of bread soaked in milk and honey with a dusting of cocoa powder and a touch of vanilla extract.
From there, it largely smelled like dusty, barely earthy patchouli with hints of cocoa and vanilla together with gentle cedarwood. Within the drydown, which emerged across the fifth hour, the patchouli misplaced its earthiness; it was extra like a vanilla with a cocoa undercurrent, clean and amorphous in its woodiness, and had a creamy muskiness to it. The fragrance progressively misplaced its cocoa side because the vanilla and musk ramped up.
For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. This arm was moisturized with unscented moisturizer a couple of half hour previous to making use of fragrance.
I bought my pattern in January 2022; fragrances are identified to be reformulated over their lifetime , so be conscious of when a assessment was made, e.g. a assessment from 2010 might not replicate what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.
It lasted for 5 hours till it was a skin-scent and about 12 hours earlier than it was fairly tough to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection had been reasonable for the primary two hours, however Fjerne wasn’t as intense as I’ve skilled with different Slumberhouse fragrances.
There have been elements of Fjerne that jogged my memory of Ore 2022, doubtless due to the way in which the cocoa is introduced in each, however I desire Ore 2022 fairly a bit extra. There’s one thing extra assertive about Ore 2022.
