Get More Bent: Smell Bent Desperado, Prairie Nymph and Saddle Warmer
Last year I had the pleasure of meeting Brent Leonesio the youthful founder of the house Smell Bent, which featured fun little numbers that were (and are) not only delightfully affordable but also really, really good. The past week he let me know that he's going in a slightly different direction, adding EdP sprays to his collection of oils. From his original collection, Bollywood or Bust, Violet Tendencies and Commando have become available in sprays as well as three new Western themed ones:
Desperado is blood cedar, black seed, opoponax, gingergrass and saffron. It's the darkest and the most "manly" (yes, but I like it too) of the three. While certainly not a clone it definitely has that Lonestar vibe going on. It was pretty much my immediate favorite.
Prairie Nymph is honeyed beeswax, carnation, clementine, and soft musk. The opening is very much about the fruit, candied with the beeswax, like opening a jar of home-made marmalade. Then it gets a lovely musk to it. It reminds me a lot of Rich Hippie. Actually it makes me glad I didn't buy Rich Hippie, as nice as it is.
Saddle Warmer is white sagebrush, green peach, a splash of moonshine, and trail grass. It's a lovely green sagey thing with the fruity peach nicely balanced by the dry sagebrush. Of course, anything that has a splash of moonshine has my seal of approval..
All of these are available in a travel size of 4ML for $6.50 each or 5 for $25. Full sized bottles are 55ML and will be $45 at the Smell Bent website. He provided me with samples of the six. The large bottle of Commando in my future will be my purchase.
