Item details

Handmade

Materials

violet, suede, almond, ozone, metal, green tea, fern, essential oils, fragrance oils, key accords, jojoba carrier oil, clear glass bottle

A scholarly and verdant scent with a bit of camp and gallow's humour, laced with the thrum of underappreciated genius: Victorian violets, thin fern leaves, a whiff of smoke and metal, with electricity in the atmosphere and green tea brewing in the background, all topped off by a hint of gentlemanly cologne seeped into suede and the touch of bitter almonds.

Review:
"I paid to sponsor a new fragrance based on (Edward) that ended up being “A Riddle and an Enigma”!
"Working with Derin was wonderful - he’s truly a master of his craft. He asked me some questions about the character and was able to create something so complex and pleasant.
"The scent in particular has become my favorite of this shop’s - my partner actually put it on when he picked me up to surprise me since it showed up in the mail before I got home. When I got into the car I was greeted by an initial lush sweetness that gently released the layers of ozone underneath. I haven’t experienced the complete fragrance yet, but the whole thing just feels warm and the perfect mix of mechanical and organic.
"I also received samples of Data Huntress and Wild Mojave. Both are AMAZING and I’m going to order larger sizes of them both!"

All notes and fragrances are gender neutral. Firstly, there are more than two genders. Secondly, it's impossible for a fragrance to have a gender, or to work better with a specific gender. All fragrances can be worn by all people; it's simply a matter of what scents they prefer. I ask as a non-binary trans man that no one describe any of my fragrances in a gendered way, and thank them for their respect. :)
Probably! Please see both my Bespoke Exclusive Fragrance listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/260236261/bespoke-exclusive-fragrance and my Sponsor a Fragrance listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/499829732/sponsor-a-fragrance

Just send me a message and we'll discuss my making your fragrance idea further. :)

There are a few fragrances that I will not make for any reason (even if you're fictionkin, fictive, or have them as your headmate), due to safety concerns. Those include:

• Fragrances you've come up with ALL of the notes for already.
• Nazis (this includes Hydra, a Nazi organization)
• Rapists
• Castiel
• John Winchester, others who've hurt Dean and Sam
• Albert Wesker

Thank you for your understanding!
I can do my best!
