January Scent Project received a glowing and poetic review at the hands of New York-based blogger Joseph Sagona at his blog The Scented Apprentice. Joseph's reviews are particularly interesting for his 'life of the perfume' approach, telling the reader all that he is experiencing as he's wearing it throughout the day, from initial application to dry down. It's a great method that he applies for every scent that he reviews, and it creates an excellent baseline from which to draw interesting distinctions between fragrances.
From Joseph's review:
I find this to be very sensual, seductive and sexy, it has the roughness and edge of a cold winters day in an evergreen forest as you're sitting by a campfire burning incense.
