I will update with sizes and concentration when I can. A sample pack (six 2 ml sprays) can be ordered now from the Six Scents webstore ($35).

Update: the "Steamed Skin" accord in Second Skin is described by the brand as "a synthetic note created to give the idea of freshly clean skin, the beauty of when you just get out of the shower and your skin feels fresh."

    Wow ! This is the first time i have heard of Six Scents ! At first glance it looks really cool ! And I love the sound of “Nappa Nior” . I would love to order the sample set for me here in Australia , but if one more box of perfume turns up at my door I’m in serious trouble!! Sigh*

      Ha, I know what you mean.

    • Zubi says:

      Seriously, there should be a Big Brother series for perfumistas…. Sampling would be so much cheaper :(

      Thanks Robin. Every time I see a brand I never heard of, I immediately look for samples, as I (to quote my brain) “definitely need to try that”. My wallet thanks you. :P

      • Zubi says:

        Big Brother house*

        • Zubi says:

          Ignore my comment, my wallet thanks you much less sarcastically now. I just did my research and it seems to be more fluff than something I desperately need in my collection. I’ll just sit pretty and wait for my sample packs from Rosine, SSS, and OJ :D

          • Zubi says:

            SSS not being Six Scents Series but Sonoma!

            Gosh sorry for writing so much :( :( *cringe*

          • Robin says:

            No worries! Hope you’ll love something from the samples you already have coming.

    I have to say that “steamed skin” as a note sounds kind of awful (Second Skin), but as a whole, the collection sounds intriguing and worth a try.

    • Robin says:

      I am hoping that is a translation issue & they meant something more like “warm skin”. And would assume Eorgywood should be Georgywood.

      • Zubi says:

        Might not be; this is the set of notes from a perfume from one of the previous series:

        #4 “Ascent” by Rad Hourani & Christophe Raynaud: Semen top note, baby-powder, leather and Frankincense.

        • bluegardenia says:

          Interesting. To me Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mist (a fragrance I do love) has what can only be described as a semen note after the carrot opening. A little disturbing.
