I ordered 3 samples on their opening day and Jen graciously provided me with four extras. I love perfumes and scents, but I am definitely a indie novice. I'll be sharing my first impressions as well as my husband's thoughts and ratings.
Cosima Key: Potent and animalistic! Not for the faint of heart, this scent is raw and smutty. Amber, ambergris accord, honey, rose musk, sandalwood, and beeswax.
Husband: Spicy, slightly masculine, but also floral. 4 out of 5.
Me: Feral smells like a combination of sweet spiced rum and a hint of bourbon. Overall, I enjoy it but I wouldn’t buy it in it’s full size. 3 out of 5.
Cosima Key: A gleaming, crisp fragrance. Clean cotton, sweet pea, lilac, and saffron threads.
Husband: Fresh and sugary. 3 out of 5.
Me: Floral laundry detergent. I love clean scents and the combination of floral notes really enhances this perfume oil. I could definitely this being an everyday scent for me. 5 out of 5.
Cosima Key: A watery and ethereal blend of pear, sweet pea, and lilac.
Husband: Spring, bouquet of flowers and the pool, also maybe a bit of permanent marker. 3.5 out of 5.
Me: This reminds me getting my hair done as a kid. It smells a bit like Pink's Hair Dressing and slightly of sweet blooming flowers. I can't separate the perfume from my memory so I don't know how to feel about this scent! 4 out of 5.
Cosima Key: Decidedly delectable while still maintaining an air of seductive mystery. Rich delicious vanilla topped with a ripe green fig.
Husband: Oh wow. Vanilla and a sweet bath and body works candle . 4 out of 5.
Me: Sweet vanilla latte without the espresso (i.e. a vanilla steamer). Very creamy, very sweet. 5 out of 5.
Cosima Key: A bright, cheerful, uplifting scent. Sicilian blood orange, fresh ginger and a gentle kiss of blooming jasmine.
Husband: Root beer barrel candy. Warm, inviting and sweet. 3.5 out of 5.
Me: Citrus and spice, a slight floral touch too. Also, I kinda smell root beer too. 4 out of 5.
Cosima Key: Natural, clean, and elegant. The scent of warm clean skin with a touch of Oregon fir needle.
Husband: Ohhh that's nice. Fresh and herbaceous. 5 out of 5.
Me: Grassy and clean. Quite masculine and piney. 4 out of 5.
Cosima Key: Reminiscent of entering a bustling import store. A smoldering, musky, heady scent. Exotic incense and a drop of clove.
Husband: Root beer and suntan lotion. 3.5 out of 5
Me: Sweet burning incense. This again reminds me of my childhood. 5 out of 5.
Overall I really enjoy the scents that I received from Cosima Key. Shipping was very fast and I appreciated the hand written note and extra samples from Jen. I had a very positive experience with Cosima Key!
