This is a VERY bright floral! My kid has been watching me get ready, putting perfumes and oils on n such. Shes now partaking in a simpler version of what I do.

 

Today this one got picked, I haven't worn it yet cuz I need to do morning routine. On her tho, the hedione is prominant with clover and light summery honey. You can smell honeysuckle and something else I can't separate in her cloud? Quite lovely with a strong impression and the throw is very impressive lol

To start with, can we just give it up to Mara and her amazing skills?  I know we all do, but this is one of those times where I'm just stunned in the face of what she can create.

 

For me, this is a very intense three-dimensional creation of honeysuckle.  It's more "real" than an ideation in the way it wears, I would say.  It absolutely makes me think of being near to a honeysuckle bush and the air has become that fragrance.  The presence of the hedione also makes me think of ETT: The Star, but that one has more of an overall white floral perfume vibe whereas this makes me think of honeysuckle and jasmine growing in close proximity.  This is so gorgeous and while it seems so potent at first, as it dries down I think the intensity backs off a bit and becomes a part of your overall personal warmth.  In that way it reminds me a lot of vintage perfumery.

I haven't tried this one on my body yet, but every time I sniff the bottle my eyes roll back in my head from sheer bliss.

Wow! Just wow. I love honeysuckle but am not generally that big into jasmine or hedione as they can get a little stabby In the 3rd eye area. Once again Mara makes one that breaks all my rules. I love it. Luna’s description of 3D is spot on. This is round and lush. The florals are rich sweet AND airy at the same time while the honey brings in that lightly dripping warmth. The clover is so nice for keeping it from being too sticky. This is like walking around flower gardens on a bright sunny Spring into Summer morning where the light is just right. Stunning, simply stunning.

I am bewildered. Puzzled. Amazed.

Let me be clear, I don’t like jasmine. I have even used jasmine EO (pure EO oil burns off fast) as a scent marker in certain phero sprays to make sure I don’t OD.  Except now I am questioning this hard line stance. Perhaps it’s an alchemical development with the clover and honey, I dunno. The honeysuckle is to die for, and who would have thought honeysuckle would be worth dropping dead over? Certainly not me!

 I don’t do heavy florals, I don’t particularly enjoy white florals especially, I take my flowers with fruit. Living Doll, Pallas, Sarong, Prisma, and Enivrant are fruity florals that I love. I guess Lavender is technically a flower, but it’s entirely another thing to me. But I have this weird feeling that I could possibly be buying a bottle of this fascinating potion. 🤯

I'm not that much of a floral person myself, but Mara has really changed my mind about floral perfume in general over the years.  I love fruity/gourmand florals too, but I try to approach everything with an open mind these days because I don't want to miss out on anything which I might find beautiful.

Absolutely. I don’t understand how some people can so easily pick and choose which trials they want from each release. I just need them all, and I need to (mostly) try them all. There are occasional rebrews that I know aren’t for me, and I’m happy to pass them along to friends, but I always at least smell them in the vial! You never know. A minor tweak can change everything.

I’ve been reaching for my trial vial of this more often than I thought I would. I like it because it’s a pure floral, for lack of a better word. I’m not a floral fragrance lover, but, if I wear a floral, I want it to smell like actual flowers, and who doesn’t love honeysuckle?  Seriously. Is there anyone who’s been outside on a warm summer’s evening, and caught a whiff of honeysuckle somewhere in the vicinity, and not enjoyed it?  Or, in my case, tried to track down where it’s growing?  
 

 

Beflower  lingers a long time, and that too, is a good thing. I’m on the fence as to whether I’ll go full bottle.  I think I’ll work my way through what I have for a while first.
