DL & Co, best known for their candles and other home fragrance products, has introduced three of their scents in perfume roll-on format:
Thorn Apple ~ "Thorn Apple’s clean bouquet is enveloped by the trill of sharp, bright notes, partially obscuring its lush, verdant interior. Like the horn-shaped blooms that seem to sound its arrival, Thorn Apple’s crisp scent foretells the sweet surrender to come." With notes of applewood, vetiver, oakmoss and patchouli.
Angel's Trumpet ~ "This is an unusual and rich scent which offsets the heady scent of Angel’s Trumpet Absolute and French Tuberose against an earthy and delicate scent of Woodland Mushrooms. This sweet and earthy blend, Angel’s Trumpet, has been a best-selling signature scent since it was introduced because of its unusual balance, richness, and exotic notes."
Lady Rhubarb ~ "A sharp look at the freshest scents of Summer. Lady Rhubarb evokes sunny afternoons with its balanced and exciting combination of Blood Orange, Red Mandarin, Grapefruit, Sandalwood, and Perilla – also known as the rare Japanese shiso, which boosts the immune system. This energizing and exquisite perfume is a DL & Company classic."
DL & Co Thorn Apple, Angel's Trumpet and Lady Rhubarb are available in 8.5 ml Eau de Parfum roll-on; $45 each at Luckyscent. (all quotes via dlcompany, additional information via luckyscent)
They're lucky if they think Perilla / Shiso is rare: it's a weed all over my yard in sumer. It's quite pretty, mind you: dark ruffled burgundy / aubergine leaves and pink fluffy spires of flowers.
I think I'm going to have to try at least two of these: I love the earthy smell of mushroom, and the scent of blood oranges. I also love the price point!
Kinda cool packaging.
Hopefully Thorn Apply will be suitable for a man to wear, it sounds soooo good! and they give quite elaborate descriptions for fragrances that only have 3-5 notes! I hope they deliver on their promises.
I must try Angel's Trumpet, being that I love the earthy scent of woodland mushrooms. Mushroom hunting is my hobby so I'm a sucker for this kind of thing.
Careful — you'll have the fragrance companies taking over your yard
Existentialist, they're pretty, agree.
They're pricey for the amount, esp. given that it's EdP, but $45 isn't so hard to come up with, I guess. I love mushroom too — let me know if these are wonderful!
I have never tried a single item from this brand, but there must be reviews of these scents somewhere — I'm pretty sure all of them started as home fragrances.
Please tell us if it's worthy!
I just went outside to compare “Angels Trumpet” to the real ones in my garden…its close, much closer than “Datura Noir” by SL.
A pretty white floral with a little mushroom.
The packaging is very nice, including a drawstring bag to carry the applicator.
Thanks, sounds lovely.
Thanks for this tip! I too have an angel's trumpet in my garden and was absolutely entranced the first time I smelled it at night (much more potent than daytime). I was thinking about ordering a sample of the SL Datura Noir, but will definitely check this one out instead. (Funds are limited, even for samples, so they must be chosen wisely.) Any other suggestions for dature fragrances?
One of my favorites is MPG Secrete Datura. I don't know how close it is to the real thing but it is lovely. You can get a sample at LuckyScent.
So I now am an owner of Angel's Trumpet. I am really disappointed. Big time. It is a lovely scent, a pure romantic floral. It does smell of angel's trumpet and tons and tons of tuberose, think of a nicer and kinder Fracas. It is very feminine. However, it is not a bit gritty and not a bit “mushroomy” or ever dirty. I was craving chanterelles with tuberose and this did not do the trick. That is so misleading. It shouldn't have been listed as a note at all. The container is nice and small and portable, which it needs to be because the scent is not long lasting. Also, the perfume dried my skin out in the patch that I applied it. Sadly, luckyscent does not take returns and this was bought as a gift from my husband who is into mycology and would buy anything claiming to have the earthy aroma of forest fungi. Oh, well. This is what happens when you buy things unsniffed. I really didn't need another pretty floral added to my collection.
Oh drat and double drat! What a shame. Wonder if you can find something to layer it with since you're stuck w/ it now.
