  • ITI:  Maiden is a balmy white tea and rose out of the bottle. It reminds me ever so slightly of a garden party in mid June.
  • Wet: The carnation on my skin is light, pleasantly spicy when paired with the gentle Damask rose along with the soothing, almost lemony white tea.  It’s pleasant, soft, and rather innocent.
  • Dry: While not giving it the whole day to settle like I normally do, the dry down is a bit more powdery and  spicy, the carnation and white tea contributing to the bulk of that.  The rose is present, but it’s just enough to sweeten everything rather than distinctly engage as a rose note.  Nice, but not bottle worthy.
Other Impressions: None.
