SOTD – Mad As Birds & Toxid Lotus

Mad As Birds by Darling Clandestine
Toxid Lotus by One Hand Washes The Other

Mad As Birds
is a sweet, cool, garden-dew fragrance with notes of pear and mint and amber and marigolds.

Toxid Lotus
is like I Smell Like A Witch’s older sister, you know, the one always in trouble for doing something devious. Blackened dark Musk, Red Wine, Damask Rose Absolute, Frankincense, Baby Roses, Myrrh, and a hint of White Amber.

I’m no expert in perfumes, but I know what makes me feel good, what provokes a memory and just what smells good to me. Mad As Birds is an amazing smell. I wear it quite often paired with other scents. It’s wonderful on it’s own and mixed with other things. Mad As Birds smells like musky/herby florals to me. Toxid Lotus is a special blend Becca from OHWTO made for me. It smells like old victorian houses, incense and smoke, with a hint of rose to me.

You can find Mad As Birds from Darling Clandestine in either a perfume oil for $17 or as a solid perfume for $10. You can find Toxid Lotus from One Hand Washes The Other as a perfume oil for $9 or as a solid scent for $4.

About me

I run this blog! This blog is a personal blog for all things beauty related. I love swatching, reviewing and hosting giveaways. I've been blogging since I was 16 years old... That's uh a long time. I am now 34! Sometimes I like to blog about my life and what is going on, but not often anymore. I hope you enjoy my blog posts!

    My wife will be interested to try those scents. I’ll tell her about this, though I guess she already heard about those scent shops.

    I have a solid perfume in Mad As Birds and really like the scent!
