Holy shit, y’all! This scent is amazing. I didn’t know I would like it so much but it was love at first spray. The bitter is there but there is something unctuous and sweet under the surface that grounds it as it warms on the skin. It’s nostalgic and new all at once. I love a bitter cocktail with a touch of earthiness and that’s exactly how this scent smells. I don’t think it’s a winner for everyone but I’m over the moon for this unique scent!!
Slightly Bitter was the one fruity Heretic fragrance that I thought I’d like, but I wasn’t entirely sure, and I LOVE IT!!! As it opens, I love how it goes from sparkling citrus topnotes to a middle note that reminds me of something like a delicious sweet tart candy, to a base of mellow greenness softened by berries. Divine. Liquid sunshine for these dark days of winter, I would swim in this :)
Just beneath the bright citrus are green, vegetal tones that make Slightly Bitter unique and engaging. For me there is also something of a pulsing quality - the fragrance feels alive. Excellent for boosting energy and mood!
I really love this scent - it isn't too overpowering and is perfect for daytime and isn't overpowering. Bright citrus that dries down into a pleasant crisp and clean scent. Definitely a winner and I have most of the frangrances from Heretic - definitely a new favorite!
