I have an insane amount of perfumes to review, but today I'm going to review Ploughman by Haus of Gloi. They recently released their Spring products, but I did not buy anything initially. Then I read Liber Vix's Haus of Gloi Spring haul here, and she inspired me to purchase a lovely Spring perfume from them- Ploughman! I also got a whipped soap in the same scent.
Haus of Gloi describes Ploughman as:
Well worn leather, dirt n' dandelions, carrot, a pinch of tobacco and a light sheen of feral skin musk.
Cold Sniff: The dandelion note is very strong upon cold sniff. It's quite glorious, though I am a huge dandelion fan.
Initial Application/Wet on Skin: The earthiness/dirt note pops out, though it blends so seamlessly with the Dandelion note that it's just absolutely magical. I never noticed this from my Ploughman imp, but the carrot note peeks out here too.
Drydown: The drydown for me is every note from the scent description dancing together beautifully. Eventually this perfume ends right where it started- with the green dandelion note. This is truly a unique and wonderful spring scent.
Final Thoughts: Liber Vix told me that this scent kind of reminded her of a hobbit, and I thought that is a perfect description for Ploughman! Working hard in the field all day to plow vegetables, dandelions dancing in the light breeze, riding ponies with leather saddles, and having a delightful puff of pipe weed after a hard day's work. The Shire would most definitely smell like this perfume. I'm happy to finally be the proud owner of a full size.
