Brussels Sprouted


Brussels Sprouted is part of the Leisure Cruise range of scents at Smell Bent, the niche perfume company based in Los Angeles. Brent Leonisio, the creative force and the self-proclaimed Chairman of Good Smells, says.…"...we try to come up with super fun fragrances that will delight your nose and your funny bone…we think that perfume should be fun and shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg…we know life can be hard, but it shouldn’t have to smell bad…we hand blend our fragrances using the world’s finest ingredients, but you wouldn’t guess it from our prices…all you have to do is sit back, relax and smell good...”
So right at this moment I’m sitting back, relaxing and smelling really good, because I just spritzed myself with Brussels Sprouted. Right out of the bottle I have a clear image of green green sprouts in the damp earth at the base of towering cedars. It’s a fresh wet smell with a sharp resinous edge, almost spearminty, but intensely green, which soon mixes with the sweetness of cedar boughs and decomposing earth into a fragrant accord of green wet forest.
As Brussels Sprouted dries down, the green forest accord becomes warm and woody in the heart, with hints of dry patchouli and cedar bark, and then the musk base notes lighten and soften the EdT into a sensual warm skin scent. I pick up the merest hints of caramel or bitter chocolate as the base develops, which gives the musk an intriguing vibe.
Perfectly suited for men and women’s skin and sensibilities, Brussels Sprouted never veers into sweetness, or smells perfumey, and it still smells really good after 5-6 hours. Warm and softly aromatic.
Notes: Sprouted greens, himalayan cedar, and deep green musk growing in fresh, wet earth, inspired by the ancient Charcoal forest.
