delightful rot djinni
Be careful what you wish for. What seems sugary and charming at first, with notes of lychee, black coconut and yuzu, soon reveals to have a sinister and smoky interior, curls of copal and dark musks floating out of what seemed to be nothing but sweet.
In the imp, Djinni is sweet and citrusy with a hint of something darker. On skin it's less sweet but still quite citrusy, and I can smell the coconut more. It's got a dark, warm (literally - something about this smells "hot" to me, like minty things always smell "cold"), musky undertone, but I don't really get any smoke. Which is, as ever, fine by me.
This is really interesting - it's at once bright and sweet and dark and musky. I don't quite know how I feel about it, but I couldn't stop sniffing at my wrist, so that says something. The description and idea behind it are very fitting, and although I don't believe it's intentional, this one reminds me of the djinn episode of Supernatural. Bright and shiny on the surface, but underneath everyone's chained up in a dirty warehouse getting tortured by a creepy guy with an excess of facial tattoos.
Would I buy it again? I'm not sure. As of right this moment I don't think it's something I need to own a full bottle of, but I'll have to wear it a few more times and see if my opinion changes.
