Oil Color: Clear and colorless.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from Absinthetics. On the back, she has the notes of the scent, the title of the scent in orange, the company acronym in bold, and her decanting information. The image is of a 19th century lady looking forward, adorned in frills coming from her high-necked dress and in copious amounts on her hat.
- ITI: It’s sweet and floral, like a Sunday mimosa sitting on the garden veranda.
- Wet: It’s light, innocent, and airy. The peach is certainly ripe, and it’s framed beautifully by the peony and the carnation. The freesia sits behind the other notes adding a little soapiness, but mostly tamed by the amber.
- Dry: I’m surprised that such a light scent would still be detectable after 12 hours, but I can still make out the peach and the peony.
Other Impressions: None.
