Capsule is a rather new line of perfumes that is marketed to “urban” types that I assume are on-the-go. The bottles are 1/2 oz and retail for under $40. This makes them easy to travel with and practically impulse buys!
The story/inspiration behind Jaunt is rather esoteric, something about a crossing of spiritual paths and journeys and stuff. To me this is a very nostalgic scent reminding of grandpa’s pipe tobacco and old hope chests stored away in the attic. It’s possible that your taking a spiritual journey at grandma’s…weirder things have happened. Jaunt opens as a musky vanilla and Play-Doh benzoin. It reminds me of vanilla pods and cherry pipe tobacco. It’s a little smoky, sweet and sightly burnt. It dries down to a very boozy vanilla tobacco housed in a dusty cedar hope chest.
Notes listed include black vanilla pods, black orchid, silken rose, ylang ylang, tobacco, atlas cedar and tamboti wood.
Give Jaunt a try if you like sweet, smoky fragrances. Or if you like perfumes like Sula Vanilla Blossom, Cartier Delices EDP, Agonist Black Amber, Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille and/or Costamor Tabacca. This is a completely unisex fragrance that could be nice for fall/winter.
Projection and longevity are average.
The 1/2 oz spray retails for $38 at Beautyhabit.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Boozy pipe tobacco and hope chests. There are lots of fragrances out there that smell smoky and sweet. This isn’t a remarkable fragrance but it smells good. Think of it like a poor perfumista’s Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille. Tempting, huh?
