Poetry and Grace

A drift of jasmine tea in a gentle warm sandalwood breeze, mingling with incense and an aura of ancient parchment, with gorgeous accents of lavish pink lotus essential oil and cherry blossom...these precious and costly ingredients will lend a feeling of euphoric calm to the wearer, to enable meditation and inspiration. Created to capture a perfectly zen state of mind.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Magickal Meanings of Ingredients:
PINK LOTUS EO ~ No man can refuse the woman who wears this; lovers reunited, protection. Symbolizes intellect, mental energies and illumination. Inspiration, clarity, purification.
MYSORE SANDALWOOD ~ Love, exotic, sensual atmospheric; aphrodisiac. Healing, spirituality, exorcism.
CHERRY BLOSSOM ~ Education, feminine beauty, love, transience of life.
JASMINE ~ Self- confidence, anxiety reduction, prosperity; powerful love attractant, spiritual love.
TEA ~ Invigorating, refreshing, mentally and physically uplifting, lust. Riches, courage, strength.
MYRRH ~ Stimulating, soothing. Powerful guard against evil.
FRANKINCENSE ~ Purification, Consecration, Protection, Exorcism.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I'd call this an almost meditative scent..very calming and centering! The Myrhh is almost giving me a hit of minty to go with the tea -which isn't a bad thing! I perceive this one to be NON gender specific...and good for warm weather.

ETA: Honestly, I didn't go read the description before I wrote this, I just read it now! Wow, spot on for intent on this!

In the vial, I find it a bit sharp. When it melts on my skin, after a while, it's like a sophisticated, lady-like parfume. Jasmin is one of my favourite flowers and I like lotus, too. I was a bit afraid of the frankincense to be too strong, but in this parfume, it's rather in the background and the flowers and sandalwood are staying present on the skin, just right.

Clean, calm, floral but not in a fluttery daisy or 'white' kind of way, you could wear this pretty much anywhere, a good everyday kind of scent. I'd be interested to sniff this on the boy...I think he'd like it.

This starts off as kind of floral air freshener to me (maybe the cherry blossom?), the tea is coming in and there is a strong soapy note.

To start with I get gorgeous jasmine, tea and soft sandalwood, the lotus and cherry sit in the back but as it softens they come more to the for. This is sophisticated and oh so calming.

I cannot place it to save my life but this one reminds me of a commercial fragrance from back in my days in the cosmetics/fragrance dept. Not exactly the same as I like this one better. Wish I could think of it!

I was letting this one sit for a bit and I finally tested it last night. OOH very very pretty. It's so pretty I feel like a proper lady. It's perfectly balanced where not one note hits me over the other one. I have to keep testing to see what else I can feel with this one.

This one went on strong and stayed strong. Very floral.; Too perfumey for me. I was hoping the sandalwood and frankincense would come through, but alas, just strong jasmine.

I got this because I thought I would like the pink lotus and sandalwood. However, the jasmine overpowers everything for me. It smells too soapy and floral. :purr:

On me the jasmine and lotus intermingle in a very high-toned way, with an undercurrent of the sandalwood and parchment accord; it has an aura of sophistication which isn't quite "me" but it's lovely.

LOL! It's hard to pin one one down. Just when I think I have found one on the board whoever it is goes off the deep end and starts liking all kinds of crazy scents and ruins it between us.

The thing that kills it for me is that everybody love brown sugar. I only have a couple with brown sugar that I can tolerate like Erin's Hot Honeyed Fig. Think I will give this it's own thread so I am not totally threadjacking.

Hmm. I definitely get the jasmine tea. But the incense just kills this one for me. It's soft and calming, but I think it would give me a headache before too long.

I am not yet very savvy with reviewing perfumes and don't know as much as you ladies about scents. But I am very interested in experimenting with different scents and interested in the intent of them. This one is very strong floral, a bit perfumey, but it puts me in such a calm mood, has great longevity, and has an almost phero effect. People seem to be just a little enchanted with me when I wear this without any pheros, so I am really loving that. And the calming graceful mood that it puts me in is just amazing, I agree with the meditative aspect of it.

That was a good review! Did it change between when it was wet after you first applied and when it dried in your skin?

Every once in a blue moon I pull out my little sniffle of this and retest it. It's very lovely and has always reminded me a bit of With Every Breath which was a long standing favorite that my chemistry no longer accepts. Currently this perfume fairs better on me than WEB, but is lacking the certain something that made it so special on me.

This one is very pretty. I find it feminine, a bit powdery and old-fashioned, but also somehow fresh and clean. It doesn't seem to last very long; I can barely smell it now and I SLATHERED it this morning. I do have to wonder if it's lost a little bit of its original magic due to its age. I guess I'll never know, as I have now used up my li'l trial vial and it's gone. Onward and upward! What should I try next???
