StoremyWhether Posted June 22, 2013 Share Posted June 22, 2013 Spring's Jasmine Rain Spring asked for: "ozone, water-fresh, jasmine and earth. I'm looking for an airy scent that smells of walking in the rain with soft whispers of jasmine blowing in the breeze. Feeling alive, playful, sexy." This came out beautiful! Watery fresh and very natural. I had posted a thread awhile back asking for some ideas for a nice rainy scent.... something that would remind me of home in California. Spring rains, flowers... things that are hard to find in Arizona. I've tried Eye of the Storm and Thunder but both were just, I don't know, a bit much maybe. Torrential downpours crushing cut stems just didn't quite fit the bill. So, along came Mara's willingness to allow PE's and of course, this was my first thought and described as best I could. So, here it is and I've had the chance to dab it on instantly out of the box and also I've worn it all day today to work and here are my thoughts for those of you who decided to give it a try... First, it goes on quite strong. I suggest dabbing it on at first because I went the slather route and I personally could smell it on myself for a good three hours. I would suggest dabbing. Secondly, the very first note is definitely jasmine. It's sweet and very organic. It's fleshy and "alive" and did not remind me of your average fake jasmine scents. As the roll on oil, the first note is the heady jasmine followed by a sharpness that I can only guess is the ozone. It tingled my nose, almost like electricity, it was crisp - that smell you might pick out right before a rainstorm. Those two scents were the heaviest for the first half hour. Once it had time to dry down and meld, I could pick up notes of earth, a mild sharpness of ozone and a bit sexier, more mellow jasmine... in my head I began to think of it as if rolling on the oil was the very start of the downpour and just as the rain lets up in time and suddenly the air is full other different, deeper scents... so did the perfume. I liken the dried down scent to how the air feels and smells when the rain has fallen and the air is humid. It's a bit hazy, less sharp to your nose, more blended with the smells of everything the rain has fallen on. On my drive to work in the car, I could smell it and floating around with the air conditioner on (yes, at 5:30 am I had to have the air on ) and I could actually picture a wetness like I had been out in the rain. Getting those little whiffs of the water was truly impressive to me!!! At work, it definitely mellowed and softened over the course of the day. By time I left work, it was just a gentle jasmine scent that lay close to the skin. We have plant status first thing in the morning and one of my co-workers told me he felt giddy sitting next to me. LOL I rolled on the oil at 5 am, rolled out of the house at 5:30 and by 3:30 when I left work (early day home yippee!!!), it was very faint but still there so I give it a big thumbs up for longevity considering how hot it is here. Now, trying it in the spray form tonight, it's lighter than the oil and I don't necessarily instantly pick up the crispness of ozone like I did with the oil. The jasmine is a bit lighter too. It still smells amazing but has maybe a bit more sense of airiness as compared to the oil. I'm glad I got both because I would love to spritz in my hair or just use the spray to go lighter or use on top of a dab of the oil. Either way, it was perfectly what I wanted. It's spring, it's summer... it reminds me of playing in my uncle's front yard covered in jasmine and how the air would smell when I would open the windows during a spring rain. It's comforting and homey but at the same time, rain was always a turn on for me so it's exciting and makes me happy. It's just what I needed and wanted. And I truly hope that you ladies that took a chance on it like it as much as I do. It's truly a beautiful scent and I feel so so lucky to have found such a talented and intuitive lady to create something so wonderful. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
