Chronotope Buen Camino Perfume Review
Time to talk about Chronotope Buen Camino, a perfume I bought last year and have worn a lot! I haven’t really talked about this much because I liked it so much that it became one of those easy reach perfumes for me, and yeah, talking about something that’s just become a part of you and your routine is hard to do, especially when you like it. I discovered this at just the right time: I was really into incense (still am) and I loved it the second I smelled it, which is always a good sign for me. In the year I’ve been wearing it, I’ve found it to be comforting.
Buen Camino was created and named after a pilgrimage and so it’s no wonder that I would this deeply comforting to wear too. It had all the aspects of a medicinal balm: a burst of lavender, the scent of Polysporin, sweet immortelle, star anise (sweeter and less pungent regular anise), maybe some cinnamon?, and an incense that’s easy-to wear and becomes a part of my skin, slightly sweet and pulls people in. And it’s a crowd pleaser – people inhale and say mmmmm, that smells good.
I’ve always talked about rotating which perfumes I keep out, and having some out for certain seasons, but Buen Camino never gets put away because it’s so easy to wear. I don’t wear this if I’m going out, but I love it for a Monday or for staying in. It’s a crowd pleaser too, and like nothing else that’s out there. My favourite thing about sharing this with people has been watching their eyes widen as they smell it for the first time.
Oh, a note on the bottles – they have changed and now have the name of the perfume on the front of the bottle. This is the old bottle.
