Darling Clandestine’s Spurn is part of her Falloween Collection, which I bought last year. It is part of four scent suite, and the only one I managed to grab before everything got sold out, because Darling Clandestine is super popular with the indie folks. Not surprising because Evonne has fantastic customer services and very unique products. (Case in point: She ran out of her usual 8 ml dropper bottles for the Falloween scents, so I ended up with 15 ml version of the perfume with no extra charge.)
Described as a unisex to feminine scent, Spurn opens with the sweet tartness of pomegranate, though this bright sharp note is evened out with a slight beeswaxy smell, almost as though you have left a candle burning. As it dries down, the sweetness tones down as well to become a creamy floral scent with a slight hint of bitterness, which I take as the aged woods and marigolds.
A pretty and interesting scent, Spurn has a moderate sillage, strong in the opening but gets progressively weaker subsequently, and a wear time of about 3 to 4 hours.
