A powerful vanilla musk the likes of the one used in Dance With Me (VERY seductive yet subtle and cloud-like), and rich cardamom, and finally the nectar of peaches squeezed in the summer sun and concentrated to make a sugary peach liquor.
My reasoning for wanting to try this one is simple: it’s got peach, vanilla, and cardamom to jazz it up. The name was another selling point for me. It refers to a “jorogumo” ( 絡新婦), which is a demon from Japanese folklore that can take the form of a beautiful woman, or a giant spider. This scent was part of the Halloween 2015, so it is no longer available.
In the bottle: Mmmm, I’m getting peach cake with spices and a touch of boozy vanilla. So far, so good.
On the skin: This is really yummy. The peaches are very much candied peaches instead of fresh peaches, but it works with the spicy gourmand vibe. The cardamom adds the right amount of kick to cut the sweetness without being overpowering. The vanilla definintly gets softer on the skin, but it’s still present.
TL;DR: Candied peach cake spiced with cardamom and drizzled with a little vanilla. A solid gourmand. 4/5.
