Galbanum Resinoid ~ Essencia ~ 10% dilution
Galbanum, what an odd bird she is. Attractive and repulsive all at once, a Mae West kind of personality. No disrespect to Ms. West, but she was 'out there', as they say; ahead of her time, gorgeous and raunchy, never afraid to speak her mind or face the consequences of doing so. Galbanum's a bit like that. You get drawn in, then when you're close enough, galbanum sucker punches you, then plants a wet one on your surprised open mouth. She's screechy. There are these overarching tendrils of smooth tobacco green notes that form a loose net over the harsher notes of bitter, pitchy (screechy-screamin') resin. Galbanum can be tamed, her talons clipped through careful coupling with fatty, round, and floral notes ~ rose, carnation, vanilla, butter CO2, orris, jasmine grandiflorum, mimosa. Therein lies the allure. That she can be made happy with flowers, but still remain dangerous. What a gal!
She's a very kinky girl,
The kind you don't take home to mother.
She will never let your spirits down,
Once you let her off the streets.
She's a super freak,
She's super freaky,
