Scent: 

  • ITI:  I don’t even remember sniffing this in the imp.  I just applied this straight on the skin and was immediately blow away with how gorgeous a scent this is. I do remember the impression of flowers! Resins! Woods! Love!  It figures that it is limited edition, though.
  • Wet:  I just about swoon every time I apply.  It’s sweet nectar – a sweet without being cloying – paired with absolutely gorgeously feminine rose notes and delightfully resinous woods under swirling spices.  
  • Dry: It’s sweet agave-nectar brushed resinous woods with just a hint of femininity.  It’s perfect!

Other Impressions: None.
