Review: Haus of Gloi Snow Wolf
I've always loved the smell of a warm fireplace billowing smoke from the top that scents the whole neighborhood. You know it's winter when you inhale the fragrant air and see your own breath as you exhale.
A bit later, and a departure from the flowery descriptions, I adored drinking Diet Vanilla Coke. It was as though I could smell all the previous scenes and events in a single sip. I could swear it smelled like my father's pipe.
Now I am drawn to deep warm sweet scents. I adore perfumes with vanilla undertones and the vanilla always gets brought to the top on my skin regardless of where it falls in the scale (sorry that was a little corny).
Anyway, the long and short of it is, this scent is amazing.
It started out very sharp, smoky and a bit harsh but mellows wonderfully into the skin. After it gets absorbed, I swear I smell like my father's pipe, in a good girly way. It is utterly fabulous.
Thank you Haus of Gloi for invoking the past.
PS I bet this would layer beautifully with a perfume like Flowerbomb, or Lempicka Lolita L (one of my very favorites). And I am mad it is LE.
