Category: Floral Aquatic

Notes: Freesia, water hyacinth, violet leaf, pear, jasmine, orange blossom, lily of the valley, sweet pea, frangipani, heliotrope, peach, musk

The Bottle: Actually rather eye catching, pairing gold metallic with just a trace of multi-colored, fading glass. Although hardly graceful or feminine, this piece is at least solidly original, giving it a serious leg-up on the bulk of its celebrity fragrance competitors. A bright little jewel. ****

The Scent: Although more intricate than your average celebrity-designed garbage water, this is hardly mesmerizing. Lacking even one “bright” note to balance the greens and aquatics, “L” is heavy on the sweet pea and freesia (with just a touch of watery pear), and puts one in mind of lightly sweet running water. Pleasant enough in its own way, it dried down to a musky, rather monotonous pale peach, before drifting away completely. ***
