Cantina Band - Delightful Rot

Cantina Band
Delightful Rot Perfumery

A bawdy, raucous scent. A mix of smoky air and scuffed wood bar, dusty boots, aliens musks and the sweet molasses edge of rye liquor.

In the vial this is a smoky, booze scent. Applied to the skin the smoke and wood really come out. There's something about this I really like, though I'm not entirely sure what it is - the smell as a whole is just mmm.... it's weird because when I first got this order from Delightful Rot and opened up all the vials to sniff them, this was the one that made me reel back in horror. Yet smelling it now in the vial I'm all over it.

The smoke retreats considerably when it dries down, but there's still an edge of it there. Mostly it's a musky wood with the liquor adding an almost vanilla-like note. Very warm and snuggly - an aran sweater kind of perfume. Sillage and longevity were both medium - not overpowering but definitely noticeable.

3/5 I like it a lot, not sure if I'd have use for a full bottle of it though.

Day 56!


  1. Not a huge fan of delightful rot, but I don't have this one and I am always willing to try a new one :)

    1. I don't know that I'd try much more from them personally - there have been one or two I liked a lot, but not that I'd purchase in full size, and the others I've tried haven't really grabbed me. I think the more masculine ones tend to be nicer, but I don't get a lot of wear out of masculine scents, regardless of how much I like them.
