tyvey Posted April 9, 2018 Share Posted April 9, 2018 I’ve had this for almost two months and it has just about killed me this whole time to not come on here and fling myself to the ground shouting and weeping over how much I love this perfume. My description was: “heliotrope; a lick of your softest, creamiest, most skin-scent-ish, & LEAST heady tuberose; hedione; all smothered with a dump truck's worth of white sugar” It is incredible how precisely Mara captured the intention, and yet what she conjured is a 3D, no more like 8D version of it. What I wanted only so much better. She even chose a label that shows the exact time of day that I put together the notes for this. Terrifying I was at a window at a hotel in (SURPRISE) Hollywood, looking out over the city being its maddeningly lovely and elusive and glorious self at not-quite-dusk, and I had just put on the hotel’s lotion, which had heliotrope (which I love - it’s so fruity and desserty on me) and tuberose (which is iffy on me) but it was kind of ruined for me with a too-sharp lemon, and a fig that took it sideways, among a bunch of other stuff. So in my mind’s nose I pumped up the first, dampened and smoothed the second to its least pointy possible self, threw out the rest, added hedione because I am severely addicted to it and it seemed it’d play nicely with those two flowers, and then pictured turning it into a translucent jewel-like hard candy. I hadn’t said that last part in my order, but clairvoyant Mara made PRECISELY that: a 35 carat emerald cut amethyst candy; luxurious and glittery and gorgeous and just a little intimidating It has a decadent, roll around on silk sheets, very self-indulgent feel. WARNING: it is seriously addictive. I have worn it at least once a day every day since getting it. Excuse me as I need to go put it on again.
