Dev #1: Foreplay

Rated 4.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)




The lightest and happiest of the Devil Scent series, it represents the early phase of the story when the female protagonist is being tempted and seduced into a neo-Faustian deal with the devil. It’s the scent of falling in love despite misgivings and against one’s better judgment, a scenario in which bright top notes play against a dark and foreboding base. Released 2012. Notes: three kinds of synthetic oud, woody accord, black vanilla, tolu balsam, clear labdanum absolute, synthetic musk deer accord, Africa stone tincture, ambergris tincture, synthetic civet, beeswax absolute, frankincense, African bluegrass, giant arborvitae wood from the Pacific Northwest, and cinnamon leaf.

    If you’ve reviewed the notes and are even considering this scent, then you must be a part of the camp that loves deep, dark, resinous and smokey scents. This one smelled exactly as I expected and I am thrilled with it. I get a good deal of frankincense as the dominant note with a lovely balance of spices (cinnamon), woods, vanilla and just the slightest hint of animalic notes.
    Just look at the color, read the notes and you know what you’re getting. This has lasted all day on me and shown no sign of stopping. The perfect fall/winter scent for someone who is into this sort of note pyramid. Nicely done folks! I have all of the Dev Series and cannot wait to try them all.
