The Scoop

What happened was that Sarah McCartney spent a week in the Hoxton Hotel courtyard in spring 2013, making The Gin Garden scent with gin botanicals and a lovely smooth base for them to blend with.

A couple of people, including the visiting Tatler journalist, fell in love with the base. The name came from one of the comments about it-- so Sarah thought perhaps it would be a good idea to bottle it the way it is. So she did.

The idea was to make a gentle unassuming blend of background scents that wouldn't try to steal the limelight from the more individual gin botanicals. There is a dash of bergamot - a nice quiet citrus - and a soft hint of creamy vanilla. Then there's some velvety smooth woods and (non animal) musk and ambergris floating around. When one of their guests described it as "The Sexiest Scent On The Planet. Ever. IMHO, " they knew it had to be shared with the world. That's it really. And it's quite lovely, to say the least.

I was hoping to find a replacement perfume for Profumi di Pantelleria: Dammuso which Luckyscent no longer does - boo (a gorgeous scent). Whilst this doesn't smell like Dammuso it does have the same effect - not sure if you like it at first, then wow, then back and forth a few times before you decide you do like it. The vanilla notes come through, as does the musk and wood.

SERIOUSLY??!! This is, in MY honest opinion, a complete and total rip-off!! Don't know what had come over me, but I oh-so-foolishly dove in head first for a FB. A horrid, cheap-smelling, bordering on rancid-smelling fake vanilla stench. Only positive feature of this odor is that it faded quickly. Not fast enough to suit me!!!

Am I the only one finding the house to be incredibly derivative, particularly for one claiming to be so quirky? The descriptions have sounded so intriguing, so I ordered lots of samples, but thus far in my exploration: The Sexiest Scent on the Planet smells basically exactly like a very light sillage version of Serge Lutens Chergui. And Who Knew? is, again, a very light sillage version of Washington Tremlett's Bowtie. Don't get me wrong: I love both Chergui and Bowtie, and own full bottles of both, sure would be nice to find something that smelled as poetic and original as the marketing copy for this line.

I purchased this because of a you tube review that likened it to a fruity version of Molecule 01. I adore Molecule 01, but this, in my opinion, is in no way similar to that scent. It does, however, bear a real likeness to the more mainstream Lolita Lempicka "L", which is a sweet, vanilla-ish fragrance, with a slightly salty edge. It's nice, but not what I had hoped for. My love affair with Molecule 01 continues.....

Help! This IS a very sexy, orange dreamsicle-like scent. Unfortunately, the staying power on me was virtually zero!!! It's a beautiful fragrance (I bought a fb) but it just has no staying power on me. Can anyone suggest something similar with a greater staying power??? I'm soooo disappointed!

Out of my many fragrances, I can say that this has become my favorite. It is quite addictive, unique, and definitely sexy. It wears rather close to the skin and staying power is about four hours. It is an intimate scent for the enjoyment of the wearer and intimate other. It would be nice to be able to get the 100ml bottle in the U.S.......

A scrubber, unfortunately. Perhaps it's the ambergris, but I got a sour gasoline-like stab floating on the okay but meek vanilla-y vibe with every sniff. Oh well.

This smells like pure magic. I've never smelled anything quite like it, but cannot stop sniffing myself while wearing it. It really is the sexiest scent on the planet. ever. (imho). Signature scent for sure.
