31 Scents of October, #20: BPAL, Jazz Funeral

Jazz Funeral

20161020_223440This is such a morpher. The strange things it does on my skin. I’ll have to grab a bottle – as I said, my imps tend to fade faster, and I wonder if it is because of how I apply them.

Jazz Funeral begins boozily – there’s sweetness and rum and notes of something smoky – incense or a pyre. It changes again in an hour or so to a dusky ash, the acrid ends of a flame, flickering at the ends of a woodburn. Then it becomes floral, and what a strange floral this is, all sugar and spice; it’s not super powdery, or sneezy, which most florals usually are on me. This has hints of marzipan and Parma Violets, a slight dusty looseness, but nothing unpleasant.

It’s been several hours since I applied this and the ghost of it lingers somewhere; even though I can’t smell it any more, not really, something of alcoholic frosting is clinging to my skin.
