Darling Clandestine: Inked

Darling Clandestine is a small indie perfume house that operates out of Etsy and does a pre-order for a few scents at a time. I purchased this scent when it popped up due to the love it gets from various fragrance lovers. Scents hover around $19 for a 15ml bottle or $7-$8 for a one dram vial. 

Inked- Notes: Sea salt, leather, communion wine and raw skin.

Sniffing from the bottle is reminiscent of sipping from a cold pewter goblet that has been rinsed in a chilled frothy sea and then filled with watered down wine. A touch mineral and sweetly musky. Wet on the skin the wine swishes in a leather wineskin for a moment and then sea spray feathers salt crystals onto leather pouch. On my skin the scent fades in and out between a dark musky wine and a salt encrusted strip of rawhide leather. I have heard this scent referred to as a sexy merman and I can get that. For my chemistry it comes off more as an evening of debauchery, wine soaked memories and sweet salty skin musk and leather. 

It is unique in my collection and I enjoy the aesthetic of Darling Clandestine. I have Supernova on hand too. I plan to review it in the future as well. Do you have any wine centric scents that you enjoy?
