I was a kid back in the 80's, and I sniffed it at a department store perfume counter at the mall.I thought it was amazing back then, and I still think it's amazing today. To me, it smells like a blend of tuberose, leather, and grapes.Perhaps it's the bottle that's always influenced my opinion on that though.
It may also be reinforced by Yiddish because they were burned at the stake as punishment is an etymological urban legend.
★★★★ It has this artificial grapey,syrupy, powerful smell- Which sounds terrible I know but- Its so interesting.
it's definitely not for the people who likes fresh and light frags I can see why people hate it, it sort of feels like it'll choke you a bit- but I can also see why people love it.
It's very tuberose-forward, waxy at first, then buttered up by some berries.
When I bury my nose in this beast, I sense the woods and a spicy carnation. Poison and I went out to town together the other day, and I'm glad that I opted for two sprays under my shirt, because she radiated and the soapy sillage was perfect.
I researched the batch for my bottle; it's early 2000's, I believe.
