Fragrance Overview

One of the first bottles from the house.  Very different from everything else except for the Slumberaide.  This is what a modern Viking would be wearing.  The guy that still slays and labors during the day, but has a fancy place to come home to and shower up.  It’s both versions of that guy in this juice.

Fragrance Review

You are going to get the aroma of forest from spraying this.  Every time I wear it, I want to tell myself to smell pine, but it is not pine that I ever get.  It’s super rich moss and oakmoss with fern and different forest aromas.  The notes call it fog-cake needle, and it is a smell I get in the woods, but, again, no pine. There is a smokiness in the background.  No notes refer to this, but I pick it up.  Again, this is one of the darkest, deepest oakmosses I have in a bottle.  This is an oakmoss bomb.  Yeah, it got the bomb title. The hemlock in here is the surprise ingredient, and against that in-your-face fresh, strong, unique slumberhouse DNA is a twist in just the right direction of some funk.  Pissy, dark green funk.  Very pungent greenjust look at the juice.  The smell is in the color.  What comes out of the bottle is not what you’re left with at all.  Halfway through the wearing, about four hours in for me, there is a yin and yang transition.  This thing dies down to an incense for the next three to five hours and becomes just that, leaving almost every trace of the former notes.  A magic trick. Overall, this is a fresh breath in the winter forest, providing that air on you throughout whatever you find yourself doing in the day. Includes the punk DNA that Slumberhouse is built upon. Norne  Notes Fog-caked needle, lichen, fern, moss, hemlock, incense

    1. Snow is super rare. this video got away from me. I am going to use my first snow footage for my Aksum video. Both of these reviews were written last year during the same week. To much sampling last year.

    2. @Therapeutic Fragrance samples can turn in to a rabbit hole, just as full bottles can. I've got samples from years ago that I still haven't used. Bought a phaedon discovery set (had about 20 fragrances in (their lighter scents)) and I've barely used them. It's hard to keep track of. Proper nightmare

    1. @Therapeutic Fragrance do you think grev is minty and piney? Or.. what notes do you get the most of now that you've had it for so long. I watched your grev video fyi I just wonder what notes you really see pop out at you most. Like I'm afraid of smelling like tiger balm 😂

    1. Finally someone give me some light saber love. I am playing with my lighting like crazy. I can't get my dome light to quit blowing out surrounding mood lighting. I am just using it for mood lighting and change colors to the fragrances I review.

    1. Therapeutic Fragrance Didn’t mention only bc you already noticed it and mentioned it yourself in another comment. 😁
      Yes, oakmoss I have liked in Etruscan Water and DSH Lautrec and 4160 Tuesdays Burnt Cedar Rainbow Doves. I’m sure there are more scents with oakmoss I like, too. My replaced phone screen makes typing hard. It glitches, so I can’t write too much. But I will say lichen is pronounced LIKE-inn, with emphasis on the first part and a hard K. ❤️

    2. There it is. Thanks for that I seriously enjoy that about you. Tons of information to give all of us. Maybe it's just the synthetic oakmoss that you like. I know Etruscan and 4160 use synthetic. Not sure about Dawn's. How were the Rogue's? Those are definitely heavy.

    1. The last time I went to order Prissana stuff it was very difficult I had an order placed and had two questions (mind you it was 1,000 order) and through about three emails also from different accounts.(I didn't let them know I was a reviewer) they never answered. I got gun shy because of it. He really needs to get all that figured out. My guess is he has different partners in each of the lines and it needs to get uncomplicated which he is trying to bring everything under one line is my understanding. And it's exactly what I would do as a business move. Anyways it's still not done and I think they were aiming for last November. Hopefully something similar to Haxan is released.

    2. Therapeutic Fragrance my experience with strangers and prissana was positive but I have heard of other people who had an experience similar to yours, Get a sample of Haxan if you can , even just for educational purposes. Waiting for your tigerlust unboxing and first impressions

    3. I can't wait to unbox Tigerlust. I hope it's like my experiences with EO1 and E02. To much not to be floored by it. If I bought American Oud at that price would be disappointed good fragrance, but rather by others or real oud at that amount.

    1. If you like those three there is one more you must have, SOVA. The Slumberhouse overseas distributor had some in stock last week, because nobody knows about it. Slumberhouse sold out on his site in one night from one deleted Instagram post. Just letting a fellow fan know.

  1. Great setup, you are a natural, love your style, You have an ultra limited Hand Hendley in the back there, right? WHat do you think about Hendley's FUME? Cheers, keep up the great work!

    1. Bloodline in the only ultra limited I have any of. Only 2Ml of it. Fume is a great fragrance. All of Hans' stuff is really easy to wear and a light air base accord attached to everything I have had from him. Night and day from Slumberhouse.
