Gabylicious Posted June 10, 2012 Share Posted June 10, 2012 VANILLA ~ Aphrodisiac, inspires happiness, playfulness, sexual arousal, lust, vitalizing. VIOLET ~ Love, faithfulness, modesty; calming, balancing, healing, protection, draws luck & fortune, lust. BIRD OF PARADISE ~ Beginnings, excitement, wonderment. BIRCH LEAF ~ Symbolizes renewal and cleansing, birth, healing, Lunar energies, and protection. MADONNA LILY ~ Purity, modesty. Wards away evil, protects, and breaks enchantments. Prosperity, happiness, wealth, excitement. This is a salute to Madonna Lilies and Birds of Paradise! It opens with a soft, green herbaceous note and there’s the lily! I get the feeling of the whole flower, the petals, the green leaves and its stem. It is a defined, yet subtle, green herbaceous accord, extremely natural, with no green sharpness or stinky indolic facets that could overwhelm. After the lily, I get another hit of flowery pureness, it must be the Bird of Paradise nestled on a vanilla base. There's always this wonderful fresh green note hanging around, but non-foody vanilla balances the green vegetal aspects of this bouquet. I get a light powdery violet towards dry down. It morphs constantly and I love this! It takes unexpected vanilla-y twists and flowery turns, your nose will never get bored, it is truly beautiful and unique… It has great longevity (wore it to sleep and it still lingers on my skin!) and good sillage. It is so Full Bottle worthy! It is perfect for wearing with a white summer dress and cute wedge espadrilles. I adore the natural green scent that comes from real flowers and I think Mara achieved something really unique with this potion, she basically captured the real smell of a Lily flower and gave it a vanilla spin! It is sophisticated and refined, but unpretentious… It is subtle, unusual, ethereal, natural as a flower can be… When I wear this potion it makes me feel like a nymph, like if I was a real Fleur opening my petals, exuding my aromas...
