"Hemlock opens with that fantastic fresh vinyl accord. I was enchanted by this
from the first time I smelled it through to every time I wear it.
Hemlock is one of my favorites in this collection; the embrace of
the unnatural carries a large amount of appeal for me.”
"Hemlock is uniquely restrained. Upon first wear it comes
across as a sweet, (indistinctly) floral vanillic fragrance but the
more I wear it the more I pick up on a whole plethora of subtleties.
Theres a spicy facet, giving the sweetness a nice little bite
without straying into autumnal spice cake territory.
The adition of rum gives the opening a unique depth. I pick up
a touch of incense that coupled with the smoothness of the composition
gives the whole thing a sort of milky smoky sweetness that
somehow stradles the tightrope of edible and atmospheric.
It's at once cordially familiar, and subtly alien."
