Arcana: Alec D'Uberville

Alec D'Uberville by Arcana Wildcraft- Notes: The profligate essence of an aristocratic libertine. Amber resin, charred Madagascar vanilla, French cognac, clove, sandalwood and dark musk.

Aristocratic libertine, indeed. In the bottle, deep whiffs reveal a strong intoxicating brandy blended with fuzzy amber vanilla and that dark musk slinking around the edges and underbelly. Once on the skin the cognac fumes weave into the flesh, alternating with resin and woody clove that flashes a warm piquant attitude that bites then kisses. 
Clove spiked cognac, a bulbous glass full, cupped in the palm of a charming rogue in a tailcoat who casually engages in high stakes gambling at White's Gentlemen's Club in London. As Alec D'Uberville ages on the skin the cognac vanishes little by little (one must keep his wits when doing a proper swindle) but never completely disappears. The deep musk of gentrified men warming to schemes and intrigue thickens the air. Their breath and laughter exhaling a thin haze of that spiced amber cognac. Deep into the fragrance a touch of White's wooden halls ghosts the scent in the form of sandalwood, sweetly spicy and vanillic. 

I love this fragrance. I will be getting my milage out of this one. Julia posted on Facebook about reopening pretty soon here. And possibly something about a Peaches Crave Forests? Eh? Sign me up. What are you wearing? Have any particular Arcana quests you would like to achieve when she reopens?
