SOTD is Rasputin from @swedoft .Probably my last wearing of this till Autumn time but whether I can go that long is another matter without getting in another cheeky wear.I really can’t speak highly enough of this brand nor their products which have definitely left their mark on me in terms of what can be achieved from a small brand.Rasputin is fantastic and I’m definitely going to purchase Royal Satisfaction in the near future because that is equally as interesting and who knows there might be more as I’m still working through their sample set.It’s brands like this that pop up out of nowhere that really make this hobby so enjoyable and produce scents that shows even the bigger brands that scents can still have a personality and let the user interpret a journey of originality.This brand is definitely the find of the year thus far and Rasputin is a real gem of a scent and one I suggest that people at least give it a try in terms of sampling,you won’t be disappointed,from my experience this is an absolute HUMDINGER!!!👌
SweDoft Cambodian Oud. Right I was going to wait till the weekend to wear this, maybe even Friday, but Iv ran out of patience and the suspense was killing me. Iv given in, and I’m wearing it today.This perfume should have a lot more hype behind it than it does! I would call this the Tom Ford Oud Wood Killer! It’s that bloody good!Imagine taking the earthy animalic note from Oud Wood Intense and dropping that into the original Oud Wood. That’s what this smells like.At first, the citrus opening will remind you of the popular Tom Ford. After around 5 minutes, this rich earthy vetiver note, or whatever it is, kicks in and it’s beautifully rich, without being too strong and in your face.As it dries down it only gets better. It gets woodier and the crisp citrus opening starts to fade into the background like a fond memory. There’s something spicy too, most likely patchouli but I’m no expert. I’m sure it is though as it’s sweet, fresh, spicy and even earthy a little.When I wear this I’m reminded of old school patchouli woody scents, but the citruses give it a modern twist.
Niche Monday and I want to talk to you about Rasputin...If you’d ever bumped into the man on the busy streets of St Petersburg in the early years of the last century you’d probably not have thought too much of it. You’d have seen just another crazy-eyed monk prancing about in out-of-place looking attire, spreading old-wives tales of this and that, nothing special. But sometimes our mind tricks us into seeing something that’s not actually there, and what is there may lie hidden from our lazy eyes.RASPUTIN by @swedoft isn’t all that it seems either - as you may find out soon for yourself if you haven’t already.This fragrance is a proper shape shifter - at times feeling bright and fresh, other times more woody and herbal with a lurking spicy darkness from notes you can’t quite place, and with each wearing another surprise pops up that wasn’t there the previous time.But unlike the historical Mr Rasputin and the controversy and mystery surrounding his rise to fame as much as his demise, I’m totally resolved to get to the bottom of the fragrance, if not indeed this 30ml bottle, before the year is out.🖤
Cambodian Oud from @swedoft has a very similar profile to Tom Ford Oud Wood. It feels a bit more full bodied and will definitely leave you with a fuller wallet!
Scent of the night: Royal Satisfaction by @swedoft . Notes: saffron, patchouli, oud.Perfumer: Sfean JA. Released 2019. The very short note listing surely doesn’t do justice to this fragrance. It is actually fresh, sweet and spicy all at once. There is a creamy woody tone to the scent which is incredibly alluring and an effervescent almost aldehydic sparkle that is extremely charming. Let me know if you’ve tried this one and how you’d describe it?It’s a real enigma but certainly a beautiful release from this under the radar Swedish niche brand. Great prices too with 3 sizes available and starting at just €41.88 for 30ml...
SweDoft 565. Firstly, the tiles have nothing to do with the perfume, I saw them in the kitchen draw and though ‘ooo, they would make a nice prop for a photo’ so there we are. You can tell me if I was right or wrong.Anyway, back to the main attraction. 565 by SweDoft is a fruity and citrus gem. Most likely more suited to the warmer weather but this morning I was wanting a fruity and delicious scent to wear, then I stepped out of the house and saw all the snow! sods law!I’m going to put my hands up and say I don’t really know the notes in this one, it’s a mashup of a lot of fruits. It opens with a burst of citrus fruits, very fresh, most likely bergamot, lemon etc etc. The opening is really really good, for all citrus lovers, you really need to try this.After around 5-10 minutes you get all these fruity notes kicking in. I don’t know why but I keep thinking of it as a fruit strudel without the pastry, but it’s not a gourmand scent. It smells more like when it’s frozen, pre-baked. It’s lovely.In the base you have amber and musk to give all this juiciness character and to hold them together. It’s a lovely scent, not one of my favourites from the house, but then again it is a warm fruity freshy scent and it’s freezing outside.I think this will be a massive hit in the summer for me. Loving this house so far, out of the 6 I bought, Iv now worn 4 of them and they’re all great! Especially Rasputin and Royal Satisfaction. Actually even Endless Happiness was a hit for me, so three hits out of 4 so far is impressive! Well done SweDoft. Great work.
SOTD is Rasputin from @swedoft .Wow where to start with this mindf**k of a fragrance but I mean that in a bloody good way.This fragrance had me smelling my arm nearly every minute and I even started again at lunch time and after tea to try and get an accurate story to tell but this is so incredibly different in the story it tells,it holds secrets I kid you not!!Forget the note breakdown because that is what fools you,smell it blind because sometimes I get a note and other times I get something else but because the note breakdown has some notes like pineapple,incense,cloves, chocolate and Oud you go searching for them if that makes any sense.Here goes ,it has a freshness early on surrounded by a dryness of wood to my nose however the freshness isn’t vibrant and that soon switches to the other way round with the freshness underpinning the woods,it kinda reminded me of being in a cave with the sea crashing against rocks but not smelling aquatic at all,Woods and sea air.Then it starts to reveal little secrets cloves,chocolate ,pineapple and Cardamom but only in small wafts before it goes then reappears.I do agree with @irresistibleparfums I also get lichee in this composition but no mention in the menu.Whatever you pick up it’s always backed up with a hint of freshness like your smelling two layers at the same time,it really plays with your head.I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS,it’s so different,interesting and highly addictive.The dry down is quite a sexy affair with the spices and a hint of Oud (not much) but your nose will be pleased for sure.Great Performance but need more time for accuracy,it’s not what I’d call mass appealing,the opening and mid but this fragrance holds secrets and I’m still unlocking them,guys this is a must TRY !!!if your interested in perfumery this will blow your mind on its mechanics and yet it’s pretty linear for quite some time with the core remaining the same yet has special guest appearances popping in and out ,a truly remarkable composition!!!!😳😳👌(first impressions)

Good morning with @swedoft RasputinUna fragranza che contraddistingue, domina l'atmosfera...uno dei migliori tipi di Oud indiano, Gelsomino e ovviamente il Bergamotto, che mi riporta alle mie origini calabresi e aggiunge quella sensazione di fresco...un profumo tutto da scoprire!
Tre Kronor by Swedoft.A beautiful fragrance from a Swedish brand called @swedoft .Lemon, lavender and musk blended together perfectly into a wonderful fragrance wearable for any occasion.Clean, aromatic and mass appealing!Have you discovered the brand already?Wishing everyone a great weekend!
SweDoft Royal Satisfaction This is another beautiful offering from the Swedish house. I tested it when I bought it and it had good performance too but this is my first actual wear of it and it smells much better on the skin.I checked the website for the notes and it’s quite surprising. On initial blast I get a citrus note and also during the dry down. But the only citrus-esque note listed is patchouli, and that isn’t really a citrus note. In fact on the website it only lists three notes. Patchouli, saffron and Oud. What even weirder is I pick up a slight sweet tone too?However, the patchouli, saffron and Oud do make a great combination and the dry down is a beautiful spiced woody scent. Another I would recommend from this house, and it also seems very popular amongst reviewers. Iv seen it every where!It’s a simple scent touching borderline niche, BUT, the best bit is it’s cheap for what you get.i bought the 30ml bottle and if memory serves me correctly it was around £40-£45! That’s a bargain if you ask me.P.S. the elephant has nothing to do with the perfume and no animals were harmed during the photo shoot 😂 I just liked the look of it.
Exactly what I needed today. A bit of spicy coziness with a touch of sweetness. Happy Monday friends!
@swedoft Royal Satisfaction is very much my jam. Ima jam my foot in the ass of this week with it. Good Monday.
Recently discovered this brand thanks to the lovely @evins.world and I was so lucky to experience most of the line. I remember holding a sample of this one and decided to try it last because oud isn't my favorite note but when I sprayed it..I was blown away. It's a very wearable oud but still mysterious and extremely elegant. Dark, woody with some spicy creamyness in the drydown, it's a very refined, upscale fragrance and my favorite from the brand. Also the presentation is amazing, the wooden box with the smooth inlay looks fantastic!Definitely a brand I highly recommend you to try! .
SWEDOFT - Handmade in SwedenFounded in 2015 by Sfean J.A. All SweDoft products are 100 % handmade..I have been wanting to try this house for a while and today I am going to review two very special fragrances, both are very different from each other and of an extremely high quality..SWEDOFT - This has such a luminescent fresh opening, it's like a splash of zingy effervescent deliciousness, it feels exceedingly natural and very realistic. Instantly kiwi with its light citrussy sweetness pops, before the most mouthwatering rhubarb makes an entrance and really adds sparkle with this zesty pazzaz, while delicious melon arrives really flattering the kiwi and rhubarb. The mix of succulent fruits is later joined by sweet, rich aromatic jasmine which adds sophistication and elegance, before musks and soft, warm, woody sandalwood settle beautifully in the base..Aimed at women but men could definitely wear this, infact my partner has claimed this for himself!!.Top: Pink Pepper/Kiwi/Rhubarb Middle: Cantaloupe/Mary's incense plant/Jasmine Base: Citrus Woods/Musks/Sandalwood.CAMBODIAN OUD - Outstandingly elegant, remarkably cultivated and of an extraordinary quality, this fragrance totally surprised me. From the name of it and with no notes but Agarwood mentioned I was thinking this would be very intense but it's actually one of the most wearable oud fragrances I've tried. It's beautifully dark, woody and spicy with this enigmatic aura surrounding it. Sensational sweet, rich, woodyness adds more intrigue and as it develops I sense some spicy creamyness intermingling with the beautiful oud, it's one of those fragrances that exudes refinement and class and one that really turns heads..The only note mentioned is Agarwood(oud).
SweDoft Rasputin@fragrance_weirdo and @smellgoodeveryday you guys have excellent taste!! I blind bought this one, and I’m soooo glad I did!The opening is a bit iffy to be honest for 10 seconds, but then your nose picks out some of the notes and one note I picked out was lichee, but it’s not listed on the website. It must have been the cinnamon and the cloves.Rasputin, after the initial 5 seconds, has an opening that’s very interesting. You got these spicy notes, that come across spicy, yet there’s this freshness to them. They are heavy but airy at the same time. Most likely due to the bergamot and pineapple, but after a few minutes, you get a tad of sweetness, which is immediately compressed and taken down a notch with a chocolate note. It’s awesome the way they’ve blended this. It says on the website there’s some Oud in it as well but this is my initial impression so far so we will wait and see. The main note I smell though is patchouli, that feels like the loudest, and I love patchouli!! At the moment I’m loving this!Interesting fact...it says on the website, they took the compound of Rasputin and dumped it in the Oresund (Glacial Dark Sea) for 90 days. Apparently the compression and movement of the waves gave them a result where the ingredients intertwined and blended with each other that’s not achievable in a lab.I’m no chemist, but after reading that, I do feel like I can smell a fresh spicy and musky breeze! Maybe it’s just me, but I love the fact that they did something weird and different, and the results show in the perfume. It smells amazing!Can’t wait to try the others!
A swedish perfume house and a fragrance inspired by stories about a russian mystic.🧙🏻♂️ That is the background to SweDoft's Rasputin..Notes are: Cardamom, patchouli, cinnamon, cloves, Mexican chocolate, incense and musk, Tonka, Pineapple, Jasmine, Bergamot, cedar wood, and Agarwood(oud)..SweDofts rather pomptuous description of the fragrance boasts that wearing rasputin, the fragrance will dominate the atmosphere around you (but in a soft way?) and that luxury surrounds the fragrance in a mysterious way and immediately gives you a royal feeling...😐 Luckily, the fragrance and presentation makes up for the not so great storytelling..Try to imagine a Clive Christian X for Men "Cologne" and you will have a pretty good idea what Rasputin smells like. It opens very fresh fruity with notes of cardamom, bergamot and pineapple mixed with alot of spices (mainly cinnamon) and woods, that gets smoother the longer it stays on the skin. Its a really unique fragrance with seemingly good performance and versatility and is a great choice If you are looking for something that works for most occasions.👍🏻.Also, i must give props to the presentation! The attention to detail is fantastic! From the hand made wooden box with a wax seal, to the included certificate with the bottles unique serial number. Impressive!🤩
Fragancias muy interesantes y duraderas, con una presentación impecable, aquí te describo un poco las tres que estoy probando de @swedoft .Swedoft for Women EdP floral frutal, acordes: almizclado, afrutado y floral blanco. Tropical, verde ideal para diario; relajante y llevadero.Primadonna, EdP (centro) oriental vainilla, cálido especiado con matices de pachulí, vainilla, café especias y notas amaderadas. Muy buena estela y excelente proyección. ..Pure Lady Eau de Parfum; oriental floral: ambarado, avainillado, cálido y un aroma extremadamente exquisito y original, animálico. Divino!
I absolutely love this scent. It’s priced at mid level designer territory, but you get very high quality niche for your money.At this wonderful pricing, you get a hand made wooden box, with what feels like real leather/suede insert (I’m not sure if it is but it feels like it). The box has the logo burnt on. A wax seal on the box and also on a tag around the bottle. You also have the formula number for the perfume indented on the inside of the box lid. There’s a thank you card with the formula number again, and also a batch number.Along with all this, you get great customer service. All these things have wowed me when Iv purchased from SweDoft. And Iv only bought from them twice now!Going back to the perfume, as Iv already reviewed this before, and iv gone on a bit about the packaging, il keep it sweet and simple.Rasputin has a gorgeous sweet and spicy opening. There’s a chocolate note, which also adds a bit of smoky texture to the composition. In the dry down you have a fresh and spicy patchouli aroma along with a woody Oud. It’s wonderful and one of my favourites from the house.I think this could be a lot of people’s signature scent. Especially people who love patchouli.
A fruity delight with a nice freshness landing in soft woody notes making it a grown up fruity scent if that makes any sense. It's very easy going and suitable in an office environment. I can see a bank woman wearing this together with a crisp and clean white blouse and a plaid pen skirt in muffled colours. She smells divine. Simple yet classy, sweet but balanced. The first thing that comes to mind when I spray this is a juicy green apple but I guess it's the kiwi playing tricks with my mind. It feels very Swedish or Scandinavian all in all. No one can dislike it, everyone will think you smell great. It's not in your face at all but still not the typical perfume with florals. You can wear it fresh out of the shower, to a family gathering, at work, to church, to a job interview -basically everywhere you want to smell likeable, sweet, approachable. In Swedish I would say it's "lagom", a word that doesn't exist in other languages that means just about right. A safer blind buy doesn't exist whether it's for your sister, wife, mom, collegue. Great quality and good performance as I've noticed always comes with this brand. The bottle is heavy, with a wooden cap and a paper label making it look like Scandinavian design.Notes listed from the brand: kiwi, pink pepper, rhubarb, cantaloupe, Mary's incense plant, jasmine, citrus wood, musk and sandalwood.Thank you @swedoft for the opportunity to try this beautiful scent
for this beautyfull scent. Royal Satisfaction. A mystic spicy fragrance with a hint of rose on me.. it Will definitely wear it as evening scent this weekend.!!You should go to the website.
I tried this woodblock from @swedoft I have it in my closet, and it makes my clothes smell lovely! Not to much, but just a hint of kiwi, pink pepper, rhubarb, musk and sandalwood 👌👌I also think this woodblock would be just perfect to put in any room you want to get a nice fresh scent. Me like!😍
Prima Donna en topp ifrån mig från @swedoft kvinnliga parfymer!För kvinnan/tjejen som vill ta männen med storm utav ett sexigt moln som triggar igång männen att dra till sig uppmärksamhet och förförande! Yummmii så god!Med doft toppnot med smygande sexig touch utav vanilj som sedan inleds med toner med kaffe och svenskt trä!Riktigt bra kvinnlig doft för festen så som möten på jobbet/ dater mm
I’m so lucky because I have recieved a big heavy box with a 100 ml perfume bottle and 8 perfume samples from this Swedish niche perfume House today.First of all I have to say: What a beautiful scent!!! I love it!! and my husband wanted to seize it from the very beginning I opened the package as it is unisex😄. The opening is very fresh dominated by bergamot but also a slight of lemon and orange too. After 15 min the medium notes flow forward and appear slightly, similar to a fruit flavour. After 30 min it settled down to something totally wonderful, sexy and intoxicating. So the drydown is prominent by accords of white musk, amber and flannel flavours.Now let’s talk about the projection and the longevity:The projection is great and it is very well blended. The longevity is 8+ on my skin. You can wear this niche beauty whenever you want. It is likeable for all seasons in my opinion. The scent is very noticable and it makes a statment.The box as you can tell is made of wood and uncluttered. The bottle is simple and ”Swedishly” elegant. It has the ”good quality” touch.All in all this scent is great and I’m sure I will explore more into this brand which means more reviews about the samples are coming.Thank you very much @Swedoft for your generosity and giving me this oppprtunity to try your scents. Keep up the good job❤️ ❤️❤️
Scent of the day: Tre Kronor by Swedoft. One of my favourites in the collection! Rich, aromatic and clean fragrance with Swedish herbs, lavender, lemon, cloves and musk. Tre Kronor is all about the lavender and musk and it's a perfect white shirt scent for work or formal occasions. A slight retro vibe and in the same category as Original Santal. There's a nice depth and it has also a little sweetness in the drydown. Totally unisex in my opinion. Who wouldn't want to smell this classy? Good performance.
