About Twinkle Apothecary

Desert herbs and incense

At a glance...

Top notes: pinyon wood, holy basil, sage 

Middle notes: lavender, pink lotus, clove 

Base notes: tobacco, amber, vetiver 

This gender-less stand-alone fragrance smells like fall in the American Southwest.

First - bright, clear, sweet woods with a resinous, smoky undertone introduce cool, grassy herbs

Next - crisp, green herbal notes begin to intermingle with a hint of warm spice - the juxtaposition of which being almost reminiscent of licorice. 

Finally - the warmth of the spice notes takes over and leads into rich, deep, smoothly sweet pink lotus. Notes of leather and incense with a lush-but-dry herbal undercurrent remain on the skin at the finish.

Strength and wear time  

Strong and long wearing. Lasts approximately 5-6 hours on the skin. 

Note that the body oil is a much lighter dilution than the perfume and will have a lighter strength and wear time.

New fav!

My “go to” every day since I received this! Love the long lasting warm woodsy snuggle feeling when I wear it. Many compliments too! I ordered an extra.

Ooh, that's a great description! Thank you for sharing a review!

Lovely composition, if not for me

The sample purchased arrived beautifully packaged and quickly. This frangrance is very long lasting. Initial notes are earthy and sweet. I found the incense-like lingering to be too strong for my personal tastes, but can see how the whole fragrance works together nicely.

Thank you so much for sharing such a thoughtful review! If you're ever up to test more samples, I'd recommend Desert Musk, or perhaps layering Smudge with Amber for a lighter take on this herbal, earthy type of scent profile. Feel free to email if you have more questions :)
