Moth by Zoologist at Indigo Perfumery
Moth- the dark flame of love.
They spend their days secluded in camouflage, the intricate pattern of their wings disguising them against a course backdrop of bark and rocks. When they finally stir, even their flight is concealed, shrouded beneath the cover of night. Moonlight ripples off a delicate coating of tiny hairs as their feathered antennae guide them in their search for a mate. Only one temptation can lure them from their quest. Should they succumb to the attraction of the flame, their urge to procreate may be quashed in a wisp of smoke and smattering of ashes.
The rich gothic scent of Moth may surprise you, but soon it hypnotizes. Dark spices jolt your senses before settling into a dusting of honey-sweet rose and powdery florals. It tests its wings slowly, taking flight on an exotic journey of nagarmotha, guaiac wood & patchouli. A smoky undertone lingers beneath, serving as a constant reminder of the danger within the tantalizing flame.

We're having so much fun trying out the six samples by Zoologist. The tiny spray bottles are very handy and the 1mL size meant we could take them through TSA security at the airport. The scents are all unique and we hope to find a favorite. So far we like Hummingbird and Panda.
SOMETHING in this fragrance literally made me want to vomit.........I actually had to wash it off...........it started out very interesting, and I do believe many other people may like it but I 've never had such an unpleasant reaction to a fragrance..........
