Slowdive is everything my childhood smelled like and while i do love its scent, it's all about the feeling i get me when i wear it.
Honey and beeswax seem to be both, my weakness and my comfort. Slowdive is dark - like diving in a pool of thick nectar surrounded by white and tobacco flowers. It's mostly beeswax. That spicy herbal aroma that covers a bee`s small body with resins - that we call propolis -, woods, sweet honey nuances and saliva-on-clean-skin traces. The smell of the hive itself transfers gently to the beeswax creating a soft animalic aura around it reminding of its devoted guardian - the bee. Flowers and fruits enhance the same qualities honey has while the tobacco flower adds lightness to its heavy feel. Its honey sweet fruitiness does go on the sugary side but it never feels overbearing or nauseating.
Slowdive takes the natural consisting of many different and connected parts that combine in the simplest way and it serves it on a golden plate without ostentation.
I wouldn't like be somewhere else.
