Oil Color: Lightly yellow on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard brown apothecary bottle. The label wrapped around the bottle features the name of the scent in bolded leaf green block font just above the company name, which is in a smaller version of the a shadowed white version of the name’s font. The label is a shunga woodblock print of a woman looking at the image of a Noh theater actor and pleasuring herself.
- ITB: Surprisingly floral, the immortelle and orris root remind me of a refined, high-end soap with a lovely undertone of faintly sweet cream.
- Wet: Dang, the orris root goes slightly buggy on my skin at first, but the lavender swells to cover it within seconds, followed by the clarity of the fragrantly feminine immortelle. There’s a hint of amber under it all if I really concentrate, but this is far more floral than foody on my skin.
- Dry: Light honeyed cream and immortelle dusted with a orris root and a hint of amber. Feminine, sophisticated, and warm, this is a scent I’d reach for again.
Other Impressions: None.
