Some perfumes don’t appear to be special or complicated but somehow, they find their way to your heart. Fearless Lassie by Nui Cobalt Designs is like that.
Nui Cobalt Designs is an American indie brand that creates perfumes, candles, and talismans for “the Magickally-minded”. Some of their perfumes are meant to be used as ritual oils, whereas others, like Fearless Lassie, are “just” perfumes. Or are they?
NCD Fearless Lassie
Fearless Lassie is part of the multi-brand collection inspired by the Norwegian fairytale East of the Sun and West of the Moon. Four brands, Arcana Wildcraft, Blooddrop, Corvus Cosmetics and Nui Cobalt Designs created items inspired by the story. The fearless lassie is the protagonist who sets out to rescue the prince.
Warmth in the midst of winter. Homemade apricot preserves, poached pears with maple sugar, one slender slice of fresh baked banana bread, and the gentle glow of a fireplace.
Fearless Lassie opens with a sweet melange of apricot jam and warm pears, closely followed by a slice of banana bread. This is a joyful, tasty treat that evokes feelings of calmness, cosiness and warmth. After the drydown, the apricot and pear combine into a more general warm, sweet note. The banana bread remains in the background to support it.
Fearless Lassie isn’t supposed to be magickal but it has a special meaning for me. I received it as a gift from a friend in December 2017, so I’ll always think of Christmas when I’ll be wearing it. Christmas of 2017 was one of the best holidays in my memory, and I’ll look back on it with happiness. This perfume has this cosy, warm aura to it that cheers me up and makes me ready to take on a new day.
Fearless Lassie is still available at Nui Cobalt Designs, here for $19.
