Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This simply featured the name of the scent written in blue pen taped wrapped around the bottle.


  • ITI: Berries, cream, and cognac on first sniff.  Honestly, it’s rather appealing.
  • Wet:  Hm, the scent gets slightly astringent from the greenness, like when you snap a stalk and it smeells overtly green and sort of icky. I’m wondering if this is from the paper bag.   I can also tease out the ripe berry, but not much else beyond that. 
  • Dry:  It smells like a currant Yankee candle now.  I like it here much bettter than wet. 

Other Impressions:  It smells like a creamy pastry to my husband.
