Lumberjack Werewolf is a limited edition fragrance featured in Smell Bent’s Attack of the Killer Smellies Collection for Halloween 2010. This collection features 4 spooky inspired scents that will only be available until November 1st.
Lumberjack Werewolf is well, awesome. It’s a bit strange but in a wearable strange way. My disclaimer is that I like skanky, animalic musk scents. For some reason I like to smell like a sweaty 70’s gigolo with at least 20 spritzes of perfume. At first spritz, I can’t really smell anything. I find this very odd. Am I musk immune? Within a few minutes, I smell something that reminds me of mildew. Not the type of mildew found in an air vent, but “forest mildew”. It smells like damp, rotting tree bark. I find this aroma reminiscent of wild mushrooms since I spend most of my fall foraging mushrooms. I have smelled too much decomposing tree bark. Anyways, the mildewy bark isn’t alone. I get lots of skanky, animalic musk that wears closely to the skin. It isn’t very loud but this is far from “beginner skank” in my opinion. It’s straight-up skank. You got to love musk to want to wear Lumbejack Werewolf. There’s no florals or sweetness to mellow out the musk. Because of this, I see Lumberjack Werewolf on the masculine end of the perfume spectrum. But, a woman can wear this too.
I like this fragrance. It’s unusual but very familiar. It is an appropriate fragrance for fall. I can pull-off Lumberjack Werewolf, but I do think it’s better suited for a man. Maybe I’m a bit biased since I find musky perfumes sexy. Lumberjack Werewolf is unusually sexy. I love to smell it on my husband. I know I’ve made it sound a bit gross, rotting mildew bark and 70’s gigolo musk, but it is really nice. This fragrance makes me want to revisit all of my more masculine musky fragrances. I’ve always had a weakness for those.
Notes listed “oversexed wolf musk sprayed atop a pile of freshly cut timber”
