Solstice Scents Manor Fire EDP 60ml
Manor, Smoke, Charred Wood, Melted Beeswax, Wood Resin, Dry Wood, Burning Leaves, Worn Leather
Manor Fire opens with a blast of strong burning woods and leaves, soot and smoke with pools of melted beeswax candles. The smoke notes settle down after the initial burst (10 minutes or so) and lots of golden melted beeswax emerges, along with a bit of Manor. The smoldering resins locked in the wood of the manor melt, sizzle and diffuse on bits of charcoal embers. Labdanum, fossilized amber, frankincense (a variety of types) and copal bark form a part of the wood resin accord. There is a slight hint of warmed worn brown leather in the blend to represent the dusty volumes left behind in the derelict manor house. The dry down is Manor (woody vanilla musk, vanilla and oud), which forms the base of this blend, steeped with the most golden hot bubbly beeswax and bits of resins with a little smoke.
The strong opening of smoke, fire, charred wood and soot is for dramatic effect (this is a house on fire, after all) but this accord does recede and allows for the other notes to emerge. It turns into a sweet, woody, resinous, slightly smoky, slightly leather, Manor blend. You will continue to experience smoke notes through most of the journey but the Manor and beeswax portion is very prominent followed by a thick labdanum resin and the wood smoke becomes sweet tendrils swirling around the other notes.Questions?
