Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard 1/32 ml imp that has been decanted for me by moons_storm. Her label features the scent notes and her decanter information on the back. The front has the name of the scent and company name along with the label art, which I can no longer find a copy. Instead, here is the label art for the scent family:
- ITI: It’s decidedly resinous while at the same time being huskily fruity and clearly sharp floral (from the muguet and carnation).
- Wet: Oh no! My first impression is of long-dried car air freshener, which is what often happens when strong white florals (lily, jasmine at times) react with my skin. There is still that sense of huskiness to it, but it isn’t enough to overpower that air-freshener impression.
- Dry: Well, now that is a shifter. Now that it has been on my skin for 5 hours, the scent is a creamy white floral with deliciously alluring undertones of podium and benzoin. This is so much better now that it has had a chance to dry.
Other Impressions: None.
