Day three of a rose rotation.
Cabaret was recommended to me on the Bois de Jasmin blog as a rose/incense combo, but to be honest, I get more rose/cigarette ash. I really hated it at first, but am starting to get used to it. What it reminds me of is a pub I used to work in back in the 1980s – in the mornings, I used to go and open up, and this is what it smelled like: spilled beer, ashtrays and stale perfume. So as the scent of the Cabaret, especially backstage, I think it’s quite evocative, but I’m not sure I actually want to smell like this! I will experiment with layering and see if I can improve it. Hideous bottle, too!
