Notes: Blend of two vanillas, Near Eastern patchouli, rare woods.
Pros: Yes, it smell goods, but...
Cons: This is nothing more than another run-of-the-mill vanilla oil with a ridiculous price tag.
Development: ZeroLongevity: Lasts a good 4-6 hours on my skin if amply applied, with a faint echo thereafter.
Sillage: Is someone baking cookies?
Reminds me of: Where do I start? Everything...just pick a vanilla/patchouli oil.
Where can I buy it? $250 for a .5 oz oil; $140 for .25 oz oil at Luckyscent.com
Bottleworthy? Absolutely not...For $140 I could buy 3 or 4 100ml bottles of lesser-priced scents with a heck of a lot more artistry.
The Bottom Line: Yes it smells great, and yes it's produced by very talented jewelry designer, Loree Rodkin, but at these prices, I can only laugh. This is a scent for the money crowd who want the name and prestige.
Rating (out of 10): 4
I'm a little insulted, much how I felt when sampling the Clive Christian scents, though those are significantly more interesting than Gothic I. What scent insulted you?
