WHAT I SMELL: Crépuscule Des Âmes greets the skin with a warm and sparkling opening which quickly moves to the more herbal. The perfume is lightly spiced and incredibly inviting. As the perfume develops, it starts to take on a urinous note which turns the perfume from comforting to intriguing and lightly naughty. Underneath the naughtiness is just a shimmer of sweet that keeps the perfume in the perfect place. Eventually a light incense weaves its way in to add another dimension of mystery. After some more time, a wonderful patchouli helps to once again draw out the lightly sweet. Here the perfume perfectly resides…comfortable enough to wear on many occasions, but interesting enough to make it just that more exciting to wear. Crépuscule Des Âmes is not a powerhouse, but it’s not shy either. Instead, it’s a perfume that is distinct enough to draw others in wondering where the exotic elixir is coming from.
Crépuscule Des Âmes Notes: Mandarin, cardamom, clary sage, hysope, incense, pimento berries, hyraceum, patchouli
WHAT IT SMELLS LIKE TO ME: A 1950’s mink stole. Lightly warmed…perfect for the cool of the evening.*

Love your description and agree it’s a bit naughty. From white collection I liked Nuda Veritas the most 🙂

I love that as well. This one spoke to me more though.

Sounds interesting. I will try it, but it is awfully expensive for a full bottle. I love the vintage fur reference. I have a couple of vintage furs that I love.

Hi Ricky. Ah yes, the conundrum of the heavy costs of perfume. I do wish they offered smaller sizes.
