Speaking of honey....

Nocturne: Sapphire Honey -- We have blended the Amber-Musk of Sapphire with the Honey and Honeycomb of a sweet buzzing bees hive collected from Egyptian Flowers. Honey notes are tricky on me, there's an undernote that all too often smells a little musty on my skin. Sadly, Sapphire Honey does that. It's not awful, just not very good. I can get a hint of the amber-musk and it's a fairly intriguing scent, but the honey note is too harsh.

Nocturne: Kashmir Honey -- The Duality of Gothic Red Musk and the bliss of honeycomb and sweet honey. Anyone who's been reading my reviews for any length of time knows that I love me some Middle Eastern scents.Something about the red musk in this is spot on perfect; it takes me right back to Iran in a good way. In fact it smells so Persian to me that it was actually kind of distracting when we were at dinner tonight because it just did not go with the burger I was having. :) The honey is probably the exact same honey note as in the Sapphire Honey, but here, the faint hint of mustiness blends with the musk in a way that actually smells a little like old paper. Which, yeah, it sounds kind of unattractive but actually is fantastic.
