  • ITI:  As soon as I opened the vial, the image of a unicorn springs to mind, pale and pure (the impression of which is generated by the orris and mallow).  Followed quickly behind, however, is something earthily insect like that is a bit unsettling, which I think is from the moss, dusk, and Queen of the Night.
  • Wet: The lilac leaps forth once the scent hits my skin, followed closely by the orris and the stronger Queen of the Night.  I don’t get the unsettling notes anymore.  Instead, the scent conjures images of dew-laden early springtime blooms.
  • Dry:  Once dry, I’m left with just a very clean soapy scent with a fint of lilac.  It’s nice, but I was hoping for more complexity.

Other: “It smells like violets and Ivory soap.” -Tony
