This is one of a number of sample vials I ordered from Possets, to find out which I wanted to buy as a full bottle.

Sniffed from the vial: smells like absinthe, spicy, licorice-y and sweet but not cloying. I don't get any pear from this at all, nor do I get vanilla
Wet on skin: same as sniffed from vial
15 minutes later: still same as sniffed from vial, but the black musk is coming out a bit more. Creamy now. This one's long lasting!

I like this one a lot. It reminds me of an eau de parfum I got in Italy by a natural perfumery (L'Erbolario--Assentia). Assentia is the Italian name for one of the herbs used in absinthe, and it does smell like absinthe. I loved Assentia and was sad to find out I can't get it where I live, and to order it from Italy would cost an arm and a leg for something I might have paid the equivalent of $35 CAD for while I was there. So maybe this can be my substitute!

Black Musk, black pepper, sweet pear, sage, dry narcissus.

This is a wonderful dirty dry musk. Not a dark musk, but that nicely creamy musk Possets does so well, plus an almost saffron like dry note. I don't smell much sweet though there is the faintest suggestion of pear, and my skin amps sweet, so this is a nice balance. Lovely
