Nyx - BoondockG
A spillage of robust fine wine over black orchids and ylang flowers ~ a blend of exotic spices with light nuances of sultry amber. Highly seductive, esoteric perfume oil for women. Highly recommended for nightwear. A proprietary blend of fragrance and essential oils.
The first sniff in the vial was bugging me - what is that? I thought at first it smelled very fruity, like one of those children's scented shampoos, but that wasn't quite it. Eventually it hit me - bubblegum! What the - ? So weird. Once applied it's an aquatic floral scent, with a strong candy/sweet note. It's really strange, and nothing like I would expect from the notes describing it. When it dries down it mellows to a soft floral amber, which is pleasant but nothing special. This perfume has little sillage and not much staying power - it had disappeared entirely within two hours.
