Have you ever wandered the garden at night with your eyes closed? Just let your sense of smell take over and fill your lungs with Jasmin and other dew-kissed green things. This will make you wish to be carried away by this intoxicating scent.
I don't normally like a floral scent but there's something else in there grounding it so it isn't sicking. it's lush and rich and delicious but not obnoxious> I love it so much.
I bought it as a blind buy and my very first purchase from Balefire and I am supremely impressed! I can't even begin to express how much I'm in love with this scent. It's both comforting and bold and is very long lasting. Absolutely one of my ultimate go-to's!
When I received a sample of Baba Yaga with my order and looked up the notes, I really expected to hate it. I like earthy, but mushrooms, soil and wet stone? No. I love those scents IN the woods but not on my body so I didn't expect to fall madly in love with this.
I finally tried it (I have a system where I try a sample of perfume every day I meet my goals as a reward) and WHAT! I did hate it at first, but once it dried, it was the most deliciously earthy, witchy, glorious scent. Baba Yaga? Absolutely. I wanted to say I BE THE VVITCH OF THE WOOD and howl. It's unlike anything I've ever tried and sweeter (but not food or cloying sweet; think woody sweet) than I expected. I would bathe in this.
At first try I had decided to give the rest of the sample to my aunt, who would LOVE this. And I'm still going to because I LOVE her. That said, I'm going to have to buy a full size on my next order, and if she does love it I'll get two!
