Tyler Monk has his own brand, Luvandus, and collaborated with Scent Trunk in the creation of November 2019, which focuses on pennyroyal. Outside of a Nirvana lyric, I'm not familiar with pennyroyal, but know it is a part of the mint family. November 2019 opens with what I am assuming is pennyroyal, which is herbal and earthy, almost haylike, but doesn't go into mint territory. Maybe I am just picking out other notes and not getting the pennyroyal. Chestnut and anise are very noticeable, and as the perfume wears, dried orange rinds and carrot seed and clove mix with the chestnut warmth and create a picture of a brown and orange autumnal cornucopia. Fir and smoke and tobacco dance in the background, and the labdanum gives a resins and amber golden hue to the composition. The listed rose is not detectable to me. It is an appropriate scent for its namesake, and does smell like a warm autumn harvest season. Rich and oriental and warm, like kitchen spices simmering and nuts roasting.

    1. I try, actually had all of these longer than a month I showed a lot of constraint not opening. Was trying to wait for a couple more coming, but major shipping issues due to everything. Already two more filmed.

    1. I got these a month ago. I just picked out the nominee and perfumers I have never tried, that was my thought process. I would have no problem blind buying 5ml every month based on the quality of these four. The perfumers are really putting themselves in these creations. If they don't have a subscription they better get on it. They have an indie line that is quarterly that I wish I would of included in this order.

  1. New, natural scents from around the world. I, for 2 am also sick of synthetic Ambroxin bombs that morph into garbage after a couple of hours. Brandon, just keep the fresh air coming. I like the backward paths for originality. I missed your insight over the past 3 weeks, glad you are back..

    1. Hey Mike thanks for the comment. These are definitely heavy naturals, but I do think they are all mixed media just to make sure all are aware of that. Di Ser is the only nominee of the olfaction awards that is all natural that I am aware of. I know house of Matriarch is usually around 95% or hight natural but she relies on synthetics for longevity. I think the natural companies steer clear of the awards due to extra costs of submissions. They don't get the great profit margins that synthetics bring.

    2. @Therapeutic Fragrance Thanks for the tough decisions, lol. Any further thoughts on Ensar's crime and Punishment? I'm torn on this or a 30 mil on EO no 1, The Orris has my attention. Thanks for all that you do.
