Recently, Liber Vix wrote about some great things she picked up from Haus of Gloi's Indian Summer collection (you can view that post here!); and she gave us a sneak peak of one of Haus of Gloi's new Autumn scents- The Horseman! I was so excited about the scent description, and I just knew I had to own it.
The Horseman official scent description:
Autumnal forest and wood, distant fire, smooth saddle leather, brown musk and the lingering scent of a dark gentleman's cologne on a black woolen coat.
I jumped and purchased the full size perfume oil, which I'm glad I did! I also ordered the bubbling scrub in the same scent. I actually received the pumpkin butter in The Horseman instead, but I didn't even contact them about it because I have a plethora of soap and not much lotion. I have no doubt in my mind that Matt and Britton would make it right if I were to ask, though. I have always gotten excellent customer service from them.
Onto the pictures and my thoughts on this perfume! :)
The Horseman is very dark, musky, and smoky upon cold sniff; and I can even smell the autumn woods. I sniffed Samhain to see if they were alike in the bottle, but Samhain is completely different to me.
I know this is crazy, but The Horseman completely captured The Headless Horseman in a bottle. It is musky, woodsy, and autumnal, with a good amount of leather from the haunted rider's saddle. It's like walking through the woods on a foggy fall evening. You can't see what's through the mist, but you're pretty sure it's a good thing you can't. The light from your torch does nothing to your field of vision, but releases a sweet smokiness into the autumn air.
I am seriously in love with this perfume and couldn't be happier that I got it. I wore it yesterday, and it lasted about 5 hours on me.
If you'd like to see what I ordered last year for Haus of Gloi's autumn release (which includes my thoughts on Samhain, Ghost Puffs, and Spider Silk), please go here! :)
Thank you guys so much for reading, and I hope you have a great day/night!
