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.
