Opus Oils for Donato Style Glam Monster

By Tom

It's not a secret that I am a fan of Opus Oils and their cheeky, naughty packaging that always contain such delicious juice. I came home to find a little holiday package containing a sample of the scent I'm reviewing today, and another one called Mother that I'll review on the Posse tomorrow.

Being a rather staid resident of 90210 who dresses himself almost exclusively from the Gap and the LL Bean catalog I don't know much about the collections of Donato Crowley, who does wearable artworks that really push boundaries. The sort of thing that Lady Gaga would wear on the red carpet. I ran into perfumer Kedra Hart and she mentioned that she was working with them on creating a scent for them.

Although it's damning with faint praise, this is the scent that Lady Gaga should have released.

From their website: "Glam Monster this Artisan Parfum "Poison Couture Light" begins with an initial burst of Pink Pepper and White Grapefruit, romanced by the forever-beloved Tuberose, Jasmine and Casablanca Lily and haunted by the mystery of Oud, Narcissus and bittersweet chocolate, truly addictive. Awaken your GLAM MONSTER!!!"

Reading this list of ingredients I should want to head for the hills. In reality it's really a great scent- youthful, playful and sparkling, but not at all insipid. The pepper and Grapefuit last quite a long time over the white flowers even into the oud and cocoa base- a base that should not work, but completely does.

Even on those of us who are more apt to wear kelly green from LL Bean than spiked leather masks..

$95 for 50ML of EDT, $186 for 50ML of EDP, at their website. My samples came from the perfumer.
