Hello little harvest moons, and happy official first day of autumn! I just completed my first week at my new job, and I love it so much! My coworkers are so nice and down to earth, it's such a relief from every single job I've had in the past. It's not exactly easy, but the people I work with make any hard task so much easier by just being so chill and understanding. I told them how lucky I am to be working with them.
I haven't had energy to do much of anything while I get used to this new schedule, so I'm so sorry for not posting sooner. Today I will be revisiting a perfume from last year's One Hand Washes The Other Halloween release- Dudleyville!
Here is a bit about the inspiration beyond this perfume from ghostvillage.com:
Scent Description:Dried leaves, wood smoke, patchouli, fennel, dirt, palo santo, petitgrain, spectral musk, amyris, catnip, ginger, and cardamom
The cold sniff of Dudleyville reminds me so much of Haus of Gloi's Samhain, but with ginger added to the mix. I'm not a fan of Samhain until the drydown because it's too sharp for me until then, but actually I'm in love with it after that. Initial application is exactly the same as the cold sniff. Much like Samhain, I find this perfume much more enjoyable during the drydown. It's just fabulous with the earthiness of the dirt and leaves, and the other notes blend together so seamlessly that I cannot detect them individually unless I try REALLY hard. Though I don't care for the ginger and sharpness of the initial application, the drydown is definitely worth the wait! Dudleyville and Samhain are fairly similar, so you might like this scent if you're a Samhain fan!
