Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard imp from moons_storm. It features the the notes on the back, while the front contains the company acronym, scent name, decanting information, and label art, which is a woodblock print of several individuals in various states of undress. The image itself is not opaque, so I’m having trouble teasing out all the details.
- ITI: Delightful! Sweet pear is immersed in a swirling shadow of iris root, orris, and something that reminds me of Sweet Tart candies.
- Wet: Oh, where is that juicy pear flesh? It’s changed under iris root (thankfully, not buggy right now), now clearly pear stem. Thankfully, the iris is softened by the orris, but I’m not getting that lovely complexity on my skin.
- Dry: Soft orris and iris roots with hints of sweetness left behind. It’s nice, but it just doesn’t live up to its beauty in the imp.
Other Impressions: None
