Darling Clandestine Inked
A sting of sea salt and leather, splashes of communion wine, the essence of raw skin.
Darling Clandestine makes it’s debut on my blog today with the scent Inked. For the most part, I haven’t really been interested in DC scents; none of them have really made me go “Wow, I need to try that!”. But of all of the scents in their catalog, this was one that I kept seeing and considering. The description makes it sound like it smells like a really hot, rugged dude, and how could I resist that?
In the bottle: Mmmm. This is nice. It’s a prominent, non-boozy wine note with salt and skin musk. It’s really just pleasant to smell.
On the skin: This blossoms on the skin. The wine takes a back seat, and the skin musk and salt become more prominent with just a touch of leather. It really does have that kind of “after sex” smell, like warm, sweaty skin, but with just a touch of something else to remind you that its a perfume. It’s incredibly sensual and sexy and alluring. This would also be incredible on a guy.
TL;DR: Skin musk and salt with subtle leather and wine. The sexiest scent ever. 7/5.
