Slumberhouse Mond Extrait de Parfum is heat, darkish apple cider with a beneficiant spoonful of heat, wintery spices sweetened with honey and poured over smoky, fragrant woods. It was a perfume that developed and shifted all through the primary a number of hours of damage, although maybe much less dramatically in comparison with different Slumberhouse fragrances (that’s neither a very good or dangerous factor!).
It’s alleged to replicate an “autumnal palette” that has notes of: “honey, rubescent spices, morello cherry and sapwood, quarender apple peel, accords of mavrodaphne and marchpane, chicory, pipe tobacco casing tincture (amaretto, plum, vanilla), balsam incarnadine, pillowy amber notes, sandalwood, raspberry, guaiacwood, foin coupe bordeaux accord, and pumpkin and cream.”
It opened with heat, winter spices and reddish apple–barely candy and crisp–with dribbles of honey and just-chopped, drier, barely sawdusty woods. It did evoke an “autumnal palette” as desired; it was sizzling, apple cider, closely spiced, with crunchy leaves and naked timber throughout. Over the primary quarter-hour, the apple turned fruitier, extra like a mixture of apple, berries, and cherries with a stewed high quality. Mond managed to be dry, but crisp; shiny and spicy but clean.
The adjustments had been small and ever-shifting all through the primary two hours of damage; generally, Mond appeared sweeter, fruitier, and different occasions, it was barely smoky, woody, and extra balsamic with wooden resins. There have been different moments the place it had a cherry-almond creaminess coupled with dry, fragrant woods and tobacco. The one facet that was most modern all through these small shifts was the “rubescent spices,” which smelled of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg to me.
The subsequent shift occurred across the 4 and a half hour mark, which was when Mond grew woodier and yielded a drydown that smelled of smoked apple-wood with gentle, mild tobacco and clean sandalwood. This was sprinkled with a lingering sense of warming spices.
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 few 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 aware of when a assessment was made, e.g. a assessment from 2010 could not replicate what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.
It lasted for eight hours till it was a skin-scent and about 14 hours earlier than it was fairly troublesome to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection had been average with projection dropping after three hours.
It was a fantastic scent, and had I not lately fallen in love with Slumberhouse’s Ore 2022, it is perhaps in competition, nevertheless it’s not fairly as intoxicating as Ore was for me. I discovered following the notes and seeing how they shifted and remodeled over time to be so gratifying, although.
