    At first, it's the name that gets us: "Sleeping With Ghosts" conjures love and loss and the way that old memories can haunt. But for perfumer Mark Buxton, it seems that these memories are more sweet than bitter, because what we find in Sleeping with Ghosts is almost immediately smile-inducing. We'd describe it as a creamy, floral leather--which sounds dense and thick but manages to be as ethereal as the ghosts it recalls. It might not be what you expect, but watch as your nose comes back to it again and again as though to the memory of an old love. Notes include tagete, quince, peony, leather, vetiver, and vanilla. Check out this delightful Q&A to see why Buxton is one of our favorite perfumers to talk to.
