Category: Oriental Vanilla

Notes: immortal flower, vanilla, bitter orange, cinnamon, musk, blend of woods.

The Bottle: A whimsical little jewel. Gold netting and tiny pearl-like beads suggest salt water and siren song, while the smooth, cooly organic shape of the bottle itself is simply perfection. The little ‘L’ charm, instead of looking gaudy, adds a sweet, girly touch to an otherwise sophisticated construction. Full marks. *****

The Scent: Instead of the sickly Christmas Juice that the cinnamon/bitter orange combination made me fear might be within, we find a spicy-sweet citrus with a woody vanilla drydown. Almost ethereal, it manages to evoke a fresh salt water breeze despite lacking all of the classically aquatic notes. A personal favorite. *****
