My Halloween Perfume: Ghost Fart by Possets Perfume


Possets Perfume is a US firm that was founded and run by perfumer Fabienne Christenson. Happily, they ship all over the world.  The perfumes are in oil form, which I believe escapes a lot of the postal regulation hysteria that encumbers us perfume lovers so much. You can follow their blog here. On my other arm I am wearing their perfume oil called “Halloween”. Amazingly, it smells exactly like the black wisps of burnt paper you get floating away from a bonfire.  It smells very authentic, but I am not as enamoured as I am with Ghost Fart.

For a perfume with such an uncouth word in its title, this is rather marvellous with no hint of Southerly Wind at all. If any of you remember the delightful Body Shop Vanilla perfume oil from years ago, you may enjoy this.  The Body Shop Vanilla oil was so Vanilla it was borderline marzipan, which meant that I liked it very much. Hungry people often made eyes at me without knowing why.

 Ghost Fart seems to combine a Marzipan note along with a hint of Chocolate and if I’m not mistaken: Mint. The overall result is of a fragrance I like more than I thought I would, notwithstanding the crude nomenclature.

My bottle was loaned to me by the ever generous Lisa Wordbird, who also gave me a bottle of Possets Gingerbread Whorehouse (Or “Gingerbread  Warehouse” if I’m talking to my son). It’s the perfect perfume to wear if your Gingerbread is shop bought and you want guests to think otherwise.

Ghost Fart is a delightful slightly minty gourmand which I am rather enjoying.  I really hope someone asks me what perfume I’m wearing today. I’m dying to tell them. Prices start at only $12.50.

    1. Dear Mr Dandy,

      It is a little sweet but the hint of mint just stops it from being too teeth clenchingly sugary. It is an oil and lasts a long time. Certainly a brand worth looking into and they don’t bribe me to say so.

      I hope you had an enjoyable Halloween!

      Your friend

  1. The names of Possets are so marvellous! I do love them. 🙂 I’m looking forward to her annual Yuletide blends. Oh, and she’s having a ‘retour’ at the moment, when she re-releases old and retired favourites. I am rather excited by one called 31/2 horsemen – it claims to smell like bacon and leather! I suspect that would set a few gentlemen’s hearts racing. 🙂

    1. I’m so grateful that you introduced me to the lovely company. I believe that oils are not subject to the same rules as fragrance so even we UK-ers can buy it from the states.

      There is a lovely story on her site about how her mother doused herself with perfume before going to the Delivery Suite so the first thing Fabienne smelled when she was born was Robert Piguet’s Bandit!
