katz Posted April 4, 2008 Share Posted April 4, 2008 I'm finally testing out the scent Mara brewed for me - it began as a version of Sugared Ginger...I'd asked if she could throw some citrus in there, make it a blend a guy could wear too...and she came up with a whole new scent - I feel so lucky! I'd waited this long to wear it because I wanted to settle a rough patch with the other person I'd gotten this brewed for...he and I go through patches of irritation - and I didn't want my first sniff of this to be marred by that undercurrent. So, we settled our issues last night, I handed over the 2nd bottle of Hera to him, and today I'm celebrating! This is SO going to be a staple for me in the summertime! I tend to shy off of heavy orientals and foody scents in Phoenix in the summer, and I take out my set of citrus, green, woodsy, and simpler floral fragrances. This will fit in nicely. It starts off with a burst of bright citrus which almost immediately hides behind a full-force ginger note. I got sad at first thinking the citrus had disappeared THAT quickly...but it comes back later...along with what seems to be a soft amber...the amber is a lovely way of balancing this blend! Mmmm....this is so bright and sunny, I love it! Thank you Mara! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
