Devil, incubus, gentleman, martini, scoundrel

Sanpellegrino Limonata

Sanpellegrino Limonata

I Decided to enjoy this fine philtre with Fete Diaboli tonight. The flavor is subtle, and seems much more organic than something like say, Country Time Lemonade which is much sweeter.

The first impression derived was indeed that "it tastes like Italy", wherein you can just about taste the bounty of the hills, the streams and brooks, even the stones and minerals of ancient Italia, from My recollection of residing there for a time. The glass bottle is preferred for a crisper refreshment, although for the canned version, one notices the aluminum foil covering the flip top, presumably sealing the freshness within and granting it a unique look as well. ∞



Old Spice: Wolfthorn
The Wild Collection: Nocturnal Creatures

I was curious about this "Wild Collection" - 'Wolfthorn' in particular, being close to My namesake, and became further pleasantly intrigued with the caption "Nocturnal Creatures", further appealing to the hunter within; a sort of olfactory evocation was noted, as it finally occurred to Me that it smells like Orange Julius! Plus the elegant predatory aesthetic combined with the evocative scent made for the possibility of experimentation, and it actually operates rather well combined with the complementary natural scent along with leather.

For Me, the Old Spice fragrance has always been reminiscent of the sea, like the scent of the sailor or even pirate {without the fish}, and recall spotting it from time to time in the medicine cabinet since small Draclinghood. A red and a white bottle - probably one an aftershave, and the other, cologne. So when I initially saw the display, it merited My scrutiny.

Among these fanciful scents & themes, also available in this "Wild Collection" are Hawkridge, Foxcrest, Lionpride, and Bearglove. But no serpent...? ∞
