It smells of rum, leather-based, linen, scrubbed woods, spices and sea water. It’s unapologetically fierce and brave in its composition (very like MIchelyn and Sarah). The opening is flamboyantly spicy and boozy and intertwines with a uncooked leather-based. The cacao and patchouli cinnamon and nutmeg ship an earthy but succulent side and the styrax provides a candy tenaciousness. Narcissus is an ideal underpinning materials because it fuses the lushness and darker components of Pirate Queen mixing superbly with labdanum. In the end it’s a fragrance which bottles energy and power in olfactive kind.
