Smoldering vanilla and smoky woods, made cozy with molasses and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

From Kerosene

It was the end of the 90s, and Detroit was pummeled by a snow storm as panic ensued over Y2K. Were the heat and lights ever gonna come back on? Refuge under a cozy blanket with a mug in hand.

We do not accept returns of perfumes, simply because perfumes can't be resold once they've been opened and used. We encourage you to order samples before purchasing full bottles of perfume. And here's the good news — with every sample purchased, we'll send you a coupon code that allows you to redeem the cost of the sample and sample shipping if you buy a full bottle of the fragrance you tried (in other words, you get $10 off).

Please contact if you have a question or issue related to your order or shipping.

Sample Orders

Samples are designed to help you evaluate scents you might want to later purchase as a full bottle. You may order one sample per fragrance, up to 15 total in a single order. Samples are non-refundable.

For sample orders, please check your packing slip for a special code that will allow you to redeem the price of samples and sample shipping when purchase full bottles of the scents you sample ($10 off full bottles).

Complimentary Samples

We provide complimentary samples with $75+ full bottle purchases. You may request up to 3 samples with any qualifying order. Please use the Order Note section on the Shopping Cart overlay to let us know which complimentary samples you would like. We'll try to provide the scents you've requested, but substitutions may occur if items are out of stock.

I ordered several samples and they were beautifully packaged and this scent is amazing. Will be ordering a full size bottle. Will be ordering all my scents from here ❤️❤️


If you love sweetly known, this is your jam! I cannot describe how good this is in words, essentially take one spray and your eyes will roll back kinda good!

A Warm Embrace

I initially bought this because I was born in '99 and thought it would be a funny little inside joke for myself. And now I'm quite glad I did. It starts out woody and smoky, but gradually gets sweeter as it dries down. By the end of the day, the vanilla and spice come to the forefront, conjuring up the cozy image of being wrapped in a warm blanket inside a cabin. It's a comforting scent that's perfect for winter.

Austin Daniels
Cozy and smoky

This is a great scent, it's cozy, sweet, smoky, and seductive. I get mostly smoky vanilla and molasses with a bit of wood and nutmeg to round it out. It's pretty syrupy and once it fades throughout the day it starts to smell like a maple donut. This smells like what molasses looks like. Very comforting and nostalgic for Christmastime.


So good! I love the way it smells on my boyfriend. Invokes the feeling of camping in the snow and roasting marshmallows at a campfire while the scent of fresh pine creates an ambient background. Romantic and cozy.
