Flower of Venus

This one is very very nice. The white rose is very special. I have been sitting here for ten minutes trying to figure one note. I finally pinned it down. It's HEAT! There is something in here that translates to me as the smell of heat! It's a full bodied floral and nothing turns on me which is surprising! Beautiful!

And ode to the Goddess of Love, crafted of flowers sacred to her. A misty floral melange based on the scent of her favorite vintage White Roses, rounded out with wild Pansies, (which gained their color when pierced by Cupid's arrow - and are fabled to ensure the love of one's sweetheart), Geranium, Rose Geranium, and misty Blue Musk.

 

This is misty, but not aquatic. I totally get the smell of heat that TG is referring to. I wonder if it is the blue musk. It almost smells like a floral insence. Not in a bad way, it just smells vintage. Very nicely blended. It is not an overpowering floral. Those non-floral people just might be surprised by this one. It also has a tinge of a green note in it. Fresh picked pansies, I think that is what I am getting there. The green is from the juices falling off the stem. This note is only there when wet. It disappears after it dries down.

I get the musk and the florals but sadly this goes soapy on me - i will wait awhile and try it again later - cleos blend went soapy on me the first few times i tried it and after some time - it was wonderful - now i love it

Wearing this today and I really like it. I got soapy at first too, but after a while it settles down to a very pretty, springtimey floral, with a soft musky undertone. Perfect for this time of year.

This is a soapy rose on me as well (Cleo did not get soapy on me).

I detected a soapy note in the sample vial. I think that this could be the wild pansy, but I am not sure. This is also a light and fresh floral perfect for spring. The blue musk adds just the right amount of vintage feeling, I could easily picture this as a popular fragrance advertised in a late victorian women's magazine. I've worn this a few times to try to figure it out, but it is still a mystery to me in some ways. I could describe it as a vintage soapy floral with musky green undertones.

I also get a soapy evocation, but to be honest, florals often do that to me. I don't get heat, though...I get dew, or something like it (like watering flowers in the daytime). It makes me think of cutting roses in the morning before the dew has had a chance to evaporate. I like the spicyness of the geranium notes but otherwise I think the other elements are a bit too much for me (I'm getting that freaked-out feeling I often get when wearing certain florals).

This one really suprised me. Like TG and Sultry theres humidity.

But it isnt MERE humidity-its like stepping right into a greenhouse. Theres some flowers in the greenhouse, but mainly plants. It's very humid and very green smelling!

Scent memory wise-it takes me to the Aviary at the Detroit Zoo. Theres a butterfly garden there-what that means is a huge dome ceilinged Green House, built in Victorian style, its round with thick lead glass with heavy black metal panes running lengthwise, the building itself is a gorgeous example of vintage architecture.

Inside is every sort of plant imaginable, as well as bronze statues of people and animals(also done in a victorian style-so fitting for this scent-placed here and there among the plants.

There is a Koi pond and a small waterfall, but the amazing thing is the Butterflies..they come from the tropics and fly freely through the greenhouse. Sometimes they land on you which is a real treat-to see such beauty up close. There are hundreds-all colors, landing on plants and flitting by your face..I need to make a trip to the zoo soon...

But the wet phase smells like The Butterfly Garden all the way-and again, I fall in love with another LP!

On drydown, I can catch more floral and musk-very pretty. And yes, Vintage. I dont get much rose at all, VERY faint-so if your anti floral or Rose, try this anyway.

The craftsmanship and the way it utterly MORPHS into almost a completly different perfume is pretty amazing to me. It almost 'shapeshifts'. Well done, once again. Thanks gals!
