Scent Description and Notes:HARVEST MOON 2013
Under the harvest moon,
When the soft silver
Drips shimmering
Over the garden nights,
Death, the gray mocker,
Comes and whispers to you
As a beautiful friend
Who remembers.

Under the summer roses
When the flagrant crimson
Lurks in the dusk
Of the wild red leaves,
Love, with little hands,
Comes and touches you
With a thousand memories,
And asks you
Beautiful, unanswerable questions.
– Carl Sandburg

Red roses and wild red leaves. -BPAL

  • ITI:  Bitter, bitter autumnal leaves with a light undertone of rose.
  • Wet: It certainly is an autumnal scent. The bitter leaves evoke the smell of walking through brown, gold, and orange leaves strewn on the grown after the first big windstorm.  There is a light rose powderiness to it, but the leaves are just too strong to provide the balance that I’d like to have smelled.
  • Dry:  Most of the acrid leaf notes have died down to reveal a deep red rose coming to a close in autumnal dusk.  Much nicer when dried.

Other Impressions: None.
