sixteen92: Salem

sixteen92 Salem

Damp leaves, church incense, Italian leather, dry birch woods, clove bud absolute, bonfire smoke

What better scent to test out in October than one called Salem? This is one of sixteen92’s best selling scents, and I’ve heard tons of hype about it. A friend sent me a sample, and I’ve been anxious to finally try out this well-regarded fragrance. You can buy this on sixteen92’s website for $4.65 US for a 2mL sample, $14 US for a 6mL bottle, and $20 US for a 10mL roll-on bottle.

In the bottle: LEATHER. Very strong leather and some nondescript spices.

On the skin: The clove comes roaring in, and the leather softens a bit. Now it’s primarily clove with smoky church incense with leather to round it all out. There’s a certain dryness to this fragrance, probably from the dry leaves. This definitely leans masculine to me, like a hot man who smells like clove lurking in a church while wearing leather pants.

TL;DR: Clove with church smoke and leather. Very atmospheric and masculine. 3.5/5.
