The Shipman - Possets Perfume
An aquatic as only Possets can do them. The tang of the seashore, rushes up against Lime Bay Rum and a good shot of ship's wax which was used to lubricate the wood aboard, and skin musk to keep it going for a long time. An outdoorsy fragrance with an unexpectedly smoky note, but still very pretty with a great deal of depth and fun to it. Not somber at all and more of a jolly scent.
In the vial this is a lemony lime ozone scent, definitely not my kind of thing, but in for a penny, in for a pound and all that. Unfortunately, once I applied it to my wrist, this turned to some kind of hideous lime cleaning product scent and almost made me gag. I stuck it out for 20 minutes, hoping it would become something different on the dry down, but after that I could stand no more and had to wash it off. On me - definite scrubber.
