I purchased one of many 15ml restricted batch, however would like to have 100mls of it to bathtub in. Studying his surreal coma goals whereas smelling PTSD was wild, the fragrance is a strong unusual psychedelic floral that morphs between a grimy tuberose, jasmine and one thing extra crystalline, like a physique wrapped on this unusual fuzzy floral cloud, it places you in his thoughts as his mind tries to take care of an array of horrific ordeals his physique is experiencing, whereas he’s off on wild adventures letting his unconscious go diving in his reminiscences holding him alive. It reads like modern experimental fiction that blurs together with his previous, as he fights for all times. It jogs my memory of writers like Kathy Acker, Dennis Cooper, William Burroughs and Blake Butler, feeling very modern together with his thoughts misplaced in a simulation that’s someplace between a pc sport and web scrolling. The fragrance PTSD sounds deeply terrifying, but it’s gorgeous and right here in Phoenicia Perfumes Atmos Tuberose he provides us extra floral magnificence.
