From our Perfume Pro Mandy and verified by MEL - we love these scents!
A few years ago, I discovered Deep Midnight Perfumes on Etsy. It quickly became one of my favorite things in the world. The owner creates scents that tell stories and that appeal the nerd in me. If you love literature, watch The Walking Dead or Game of Thrones, or enjoy matching your perfume to holidays then this shop will delight you. For what it's worth, these oils have been great for my sensitive skin and the owner has impeccable customer service. Plus the packaging is just perfect and she offers great sample sets so you can try all of these and more! Sample sets start at $12 and roller balls just $19.
1. Deep Midnight Perfumes "Charis"
Charis is a soft sensual musk, dark sandalwood, and rich vanilla with the essence of vanilla bean added. I have a bottle in my night-stand drawer and wear it to bed. This stuff is peace in a bottle for me. It's not super-sweet, just comforting and soft.
2. Deep Midnight Perfumes "The Woman"
I'm a huge Sherlock Holmes fan and I freely admit my favorite story is "A Scandal in Bohemia" because...Irene Adler. This character has a number of Indie Perfumes names after her, but I think this one is the best with it's notes of mallow blossom, jasmine, peony, honeysuckle, Egyptian musk, and opium accord. Give it a couple of minutes to get through the sharp opening of opium and musk and lovely flowers will come through. It's not "old-fashioned" at all, in fact, it smells like a very high-end modern floral. I wear this on days I need to feel like a slightly mysterious, smart woman who can take on anything.
3. Deep Midnight Perfumes "Dark Streets Shineth"
I love the smell of incense at Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve and this perfume captures that scent and feeling perfectly. It's a tad sweeter that church incense with notes of firewood, Madagascar vanilla, Ethiopian incense, a touch of clove, saffron, and nutmeg. It's positively warm and your sweater will smell like heaven days later. That said, it doesn't have huge projection as often oils do not. I find it's perfect for cold, rainy, blustery days when you just want to cozy up with a book or Netflix.
We cannot wait to hear what you think about these amazing scents this holiday season!
