Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a 1/32 imp decant from Ajevie. The label features the year and the company name across the font in large burgundy and purple font. The back of the label has the company name and scent notes in small black font, while the name of the scent is above that in larger stylized black font. The bottle appears as follows:
- ITI: Lightly sugared blueberries, like the kind one encounters on sweetened blueberry muffins, over fragrant Earl Grey tea heady with bergamot and a faint impression of lily lace underneath.
- Wet: Oh, that is a lovely citrusy bergamot, sun-sweetened and musky, on a bed of delicate lily petals with a whiff of blueberry muffins pasties cooled in the background. The lily here is surprisingly well balanced with the cool white musk and the steeping tea tones, sweetened with only a modicum of sugar. As a tea lover, this is wonderful – light, airy, evocative, and refined.
- Dry: This is one that I would need to reapply throughout the day. After 6 hours, all that’s left is a skeletal faded lily musk with a subtle suggestion of citrus bergamot, but much of that warm tea and sugar pastry has vanished. It’s nice when dried, but I like this much more freshly applied.
Other Impressions: [Wet] “It’s a margarita with extra agave. It smells like a tequila-heavy margarita.”-Tony
