Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a decanted imp. It features the scent notes on the back. The front of the label displays the collection name, scent name, and date, displayed in order to frame the label art:
- ITI: Airy florals, faintly woody, with a water essence like cucumber underneath (although I know that note isn’t in here). The rose geranium is faint, but I think the violet leaf is the watery note I’m smelling here.
- Wet: What a beautiful rose geranium note! It virtually sings on my skin, it’s lovely soprano measured by the fluffy patchouli and opoponax, while the balsam weaves between the other notes, uniting and harmonizing with the others playing on my skin.
- Dry: Lovely rose geranium settled nicely against the ghost of violet leaf and the soft resins of opoponax and faded patchouli.
