|My Bottle of Salvador Dali Pour Homme (SDPH)|
|A hauntingly beautiful scent|
If Nosferatu wore perfume, Salvador Dali Pour Homme would be his signature. One of my guilty pleasures, a scent which I simply love but a majority of people that smelt it seem to dislike.
|Salvador was an odd man himself|
Salvador Dali himself was highly imaginative and enjoyed creating unusual and grandiose masterpieces. Sometimes his eccentric and controversial actions drew more attention than his actual work. He would have been alive when this perfume was composed and I truly believe, out of all of the perfumes he had ever released, Salvador Dali Pour Homme represented him the best.
|Skeleton of a Boy|
|A Graveyard, an imagined presence|
My first impressions were graveyards, haunted woods, vampires, mummies, ghosts, ghouls, wraths, tombs, shadows, and things that goes bump in the night. The nightmare that this fragrance conjures up is also a very peaceful and quiet one, an eternal rest, in a different dimension, beyond life as we know it.
|A haunting interior|
|A hanting mossy, forest. Terriying but peaceful.|
45 minutes into the application, the moon is fully bright and ripe as a gentle moist breeze whirls around in the surrounding woods, carrying with it aromas of lavender, sandalwood, anise, geranium and cedar. As the breeze enters the interior of Nosferatu's refuge, it passes series of velvety red, dusty curtain, which shields the windows from daylight.
The curtain it self are infested with mosses, dust, and bat droppings, this further adds new aromas to the entering breeze.
Towards the end of the perfume's long life of more than 8 hours, the scent becomes less mossy and animalic, and becomes more sweet and warm. As gentle sun rays of the early hours shone through the tiny gaps between the curtains, the air inside the castle warms up, giving a new found sweetness to the once dusty, cold, and pungent civet and woods. It is now time for Nosferatu and his bats to rest until night time arrives again.
A long lasting, affordable, dark, gothic, spooky and unique creation, definitely check it out! Not for the faint hearted! Will sure send shivers down you spine!
|Famous shadow of Nosferatu, he would definitely wear SDPH|
