Last year, Nocturne Alchemy completed their 31 Pumpkin Library, and hinted that there were more Libraries to come! So when the NAlloween release came out, I think everyone was excited to see the new 31 Bat Library. There are five Bats in this first release, and the one I honed in on immediately was Mrs. Scarlett Bat.
Notes are: Vetiver, Aged Black Patchouli, Kashmir Red Musk Sugar, Kashmir Absolute, Incense, Sweet Frankincense, Sweet Myrrh, Amber, Labdanum and Pink Sugar. Okay, see? Kashmir - their iconic deep red musk - and incense, and yummy resinous notes? Come to mama. As expected, I loved this straight away, and it's only going to keep getting better. This is definitely a resin party on your skin, it's so darkly sexy and just right in my wheelhouse. I love Kashmir, it's quite possibly one of my favorite perfumes and I love it in blends, too - I have skipped a few recently so when I saw this, I knew I was going to get it right away.
This is pretty well blended. It's hard to pick out individual notes, but I am doing some huffing and definitely get my beloved deep red musk, and the gorgeously sweet myrrh, frankincense, and that eye rolling sugar note I love so much. Not getting a lot of the patchouli as I huff, but there's definitely an undercurrent of the most beautiful incense. If you are nervous of vetiver, it doesn't really stand out among the other notes. I get that signature freshness of their amber if I keep huffing, and a bit of the labdanum, another one of the notes I love that they do.
This would be a great date night perfume. Me, I'll wear it whenever, of course, but it's wonderfully dark, sexy, and inviting. A total stunner, and definitely worth of its namesake, Mrs. Scarlett Red!
I have ordered Mister Price as part of my second order, so I'll have two of these Bats. Did you pick up any of them? Do you love them? I'm entranced, I swear.
