alright, update! husband tried it freshly after a shower today. the weather is nice, not too hot, not too cold, lovely. so... after two big spritzes, one on each forearm/wrist, we waited for a few moments for it to bond with his skin.
holyf#$*@ll! I have a strong stomach. I gut deer. I changed my own wound dressings to the bone. I've tended horribly infected body piercings gone wrong that filled the room with odor. tattooed on continuously farting clients.. but by all that's holy nothing prepared me for almost vomiting. it was reflexive! I dared a second sniff, and tried hard to still my previously impressive gag reflex. this stuff is beastly. an indolic sweet flower, some kind of wood in the background, and blood, or something metallic. not sperm. it makes me think of blood and tattoo ink. but blood that smells of a person with bad diet. there is no identifiable odor that makes me this ill.
here is where I think things go wrong. after the scrub, the trace amounts that are left on my fingertips and his arms. (he, with ELDO vierges et torreros, I with Opium) mixed with our perfumes smell almost sexy. like the perfume left on "wet sheets" after a romp. perhaps we are misreading the purpose of this fragrance, as an enhancer, not one to be worn singularly, except by the few of mighty chemistry. tomorrow I will fearfully attempt the test I promised on my own skin..
tonight we learned that in a trace amont, under your perfume, it can smell a little erotic, in a dirty sort of way.
well, so far, I agree with the majorities, scary indeed. with exception.
what says the other lovely reviewer of my Namesake? puddly?
