Darling Clandestine! Evonne, the owner/creator, has an amazing sense of smell and creativity and makes some pretty magical concoctions. My most recent acquisition is one of her newer scents, Goldenscale.
Everything about Darling Clandestine is handmade and executed with care.
So what does Goldenscale smell like? According to the description on etsy: 'A pure absolute of green cognac grapes, drizzled with caramel, boozed with deep-toasted vanilla, tossed with crushed clove, spritzed with crisp apple juice, and then enweirdened with DarlingClandestine.' But I don't think that really encompasses how amazing this scent is; Evonne said it was inspired by koi in a pond and the sun on their scales, which I think gives a better idea of what Goldenscale really smells like. I live near a conservatory that has a special Japanese garden; it's very peaceful (...when there aren't a lot of people.It can get quite busy at peak times) and beautiful and this fragrance oil smells exactly like that garden. There's sunshine, evergreens, gentle flowers, sparkling water, and this deep sense of peace. It's both calming and uplifting, and I can't stop smelling it when I have it on.
I'm so happy that Evonne is giving us another chance to purchase this fragrance in a larger size, since it gives anyone reading this a chance to buy it for themselves! If it sounds like something that would be your jam, go ahead and give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
Thanks for reading! <3
