Reviews of Baba Yaga by Sixteen92

Baba Yaga is one of the Sixteen92 "darker" scents that has a little more versatility to it.

When the sweetness of the dragon's blood incense fades down, the incense is remains the dominant note coupled with the candle wax and "herbal" notes. HouseOfPhlegethon nailed the similarities of this to a head shop. When you think of the Sixteen92 brand and smell this, you conjure up more of a gothic image in your head. But were I to spray this on you, hand you a bong and play "Terrapin Station" by the Grateful Dead, you'd see that it fits perfectly. That's why I think this has more versatility than some of the other Sixteen92 scents that I've sampled.

It's not something that I would wear, but for the right hippy/goth/witch/stoner this could be right up your alley.

It's a well-done scent all in all.

Thumbs up.

Just as described on the website: dragons blood, incense, smoke, herbs, beeswax, very sweet with a sharp bite that catches in the throat like pepper

A kind of smoky sweet to start. A sweet basil-like note, too, is in the forefront. It all feels like a mix of ceremonial elements used to dispel an entity of unknown intentions. It also feels autumnal. I can see why Claire keeps this in her permanent catalog of scents - It is very good.

Close to the skin there is a lovely, musty, damp earth accord. The whole thing almost has a head-shop smell and feel. It's more ethereal than just that. It's spooky. The more times I wear it, the more I fall in love.

The woody-sweetness lasts and lasts. The dragon's blood incense is pretty much the star here. It isn't bitter, like some can seem. Much later, I get a hint of vanilla candle wax aromas. Overall it is a smooth, nearly minimalist fragrance.
