I am a lover of sweet things… Vanilla, Sugar and soft floral scents. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be a fan of scent called Dark Rum. Over the course of the last few months, I have heard great things and raves about Malin + Goetz Dark Rum EDT (Eau De Toilette) and I was completely intrigued as to why… since I just couldn’t image what the hype was all about. What could possibly be so exotic and sultry about this scent that it can be used for both Men and Women and some of my favorite celebrities love it so? Well, after getting my hands on a bottle – I found out exactly what the hype was all about.
Our Dark Rum EDT is synthesized for its natural, warm notes and general well being. Modern and dynamic, this formidable and long-lasting fragrance performs on its own or paired with the subtle freshness of our Synthesized Lotus Root, creating a unique sensory balance tailored to an individual or couple.
I am not a huge fan of fragrances that have musky or deep masculine notes so I didn’t expect to enjoy or like Dark Rum from Malin+Goetz at all. After a spritz of it on my wrist and inhaling the scent, I was immediately intoxicated. I was expecting to smell a deep dark and rich scent that I am not too fond of, but I was very impressed that my first whiff of the perfume was the complete opposite. I don’t even know how to explain it. If I had to actually put it into words I would explain it as… “a soft but sweet musk”. But, here’s the interesting thing about this perfume or Eau De Toilette, it can be used for both Men and Women and the scent that shines when I’m wearing it seems to be completely different than that when on my husband. When he wears this EDT, it has a masculine scent that compliments his chemistry makeup. It smells sexy and I LOVE IT.

Now, if you know anything about me you will know my favorite scents… and I have just added Dark Rum to one of my go-to signature loves. It’s a fairly steep price to pay for a bottle of perfume, so at $150 US – it will be a splurge item for me once I run out of the bottle I have, but… with 3.4fl.oz. / 100ml in product I’m sure it will last me, hopefully. lol The scent lasts through the day so carrying a large bottle with you to reapply is not necessary. I especially love that the bottle/packaging is clean, simple and really allows the scent to speak for itself. Don’t get me wrong – I’m a sucker for gorgeous packaging, but with this product, the smell speaks for itself.
Pair this Perfume with Malin+Goetz fresh, subtle synthesized lotus root for the perfect balance.
So now that you know my thoughts on this product, would you spend that kind of money on a scent that could render your completely intoxicated? I’m definitely excited to test it out with other fragrances I have in my collection but so far – I am truly enjoying Dark Rum.
