I have a perfume locket from Velvet and Sweet Pea's Purrfumery that is filled with solid perfume in Honey, and I absolutely love it. The scent is unlike other honey-based perfume I have ever smelled. There is an unexpected medicinal earthiness I get right upfront. It's slightly smoky, mossy, herbal. The beeswax smells phenomenal and plentiful, with a touch of golden honey. The florals take on a radiant honeysuckle-like sharpness that blends so beautifully with the other notes. Altogether you have this very natural smelling perfume, but it has a lot of depth to it and smells totally unique.
It projects softly for about 3 hours, and then it becomes a skin scent for a few more hours. In those last few hours, it takes on more vanilla and becomes less earthy. At times it smells almost like a vanilla marshmallow. Beautiful at every point. My daughter loves it too. I dab it on her because it's 100% natural. When she smells it, she exclaims, "Fwowerth!!!" (flowers!)
Perfumes with honey and orange blossoms make me think of a bright, sunny day with golden sunshine. The earthiness of Honey makes me think of the same thing, except that the sun is rising over a green valley. There is a darkness to the scent that I find so beautiful, like the rising sun is spreading its golden light over damp mosses and hay.
I have not smelled everything from Velvet and Sweet Pea, but I would not be surprised if Honey was my very favorite from this house.
