|Darling Clandestine "Mad as Birds" sample vial|
Today I'm wearing Mad as Birds by Darling Clandestine, which I received as a sample in an order. It can be bought in oil form (1/2 oz) for $17 USD, as a solid for $10, as part of a sample set for $3.50 (three sample vials), or as a set of five solids for $40.
Mad as Birds is described as, "a sweet, cool, garden-dew fragrance with notes of pear and mint and amber and marigolds. A multitude of different scent elements and weeks (months!) of methodical alchemy make Mad as Birds no ordinary scented oil mix—it's a truly inimitable fragrance." (source)
This is a newly formulated version of MAB, and unfortunately I haven't smelled the original version so I can't compare the two. I can say I absolutely adore this scent, though -- I'm terrible at describing scents, but I can say the notes mingle together perfectly on my skin. At first application, the mint stands out, but it's not cloying at all. I think I mostly get the amber note on the drydown, but the entire wear is so fresh and sexy, like walking into a modern garden.
So that doesn't make sense at all, but trust me! This scent is amazing. Absolutely stunning. It's worth your time to check it out and more of what Darling Clandestine has to offer!
And psst... Check out the Facebook page... I hear there's a sale code right now.
