Oil Color: Slightly yellow oil on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 5ml brown glass vial. The name of the company and the collection are in small white bold font framing the image. The label art is a tinted artistic image of a rose. The scent name is in large, shadowed white font just above the company name, which is located closer to the bottom of the label.
- ITB: Mmm, now that’s nice. Soft tea rose flutters gently against the divine sandalwood and hay notes while the orchid adds a bit of sophistication to the scent, moving it from what might have been too girly to something elegant and sophisticated. It reminds me of chiffon and marabou feathers.
- Wet: The tea rose is even more gorgeous and clearly on my skin. There’s a touch of green too along with faint sandalwood that adds a softness around the edges of the rose.
- Dry: The tea rose has softened softened with the warmth of the vanilla orchid and something that comes across as faintly powdery. The sandalwood is very faint but I don’t get much of the hay absolute.
Other Impressions: “Well, the one yesterday smelled like baby wipes (Huit). This one smells like baby powder.” -Tony
