Inna asked for something refreshing and summery, but creamy, that she and her Mumsy could share. Per her instructions, I created a base of coconut cream, vanilla buttercream and velvety musk. Over this I layered white lily, orchid and linden blossom, and for the citrusy top note, drops of lime Eo, and a single drop of grapefruit. A dash of powdered sugar creates the smooth finish. ...Let this one meld with your skin for 5 minutes and it will bloom as it's meant to. A soft summery floral with a little zing on top!

 

Soft&Summery is exactly the perfect soft summery scent I imagined. I couldn't be more excited when I read Mara's description of this one! She used every single note I mentioned I liked (I only asked her to pick something she thought would work for this type of scent). And added even more! As a result, this is quite a complex scent. It does start kinda loud on application, with very pointy floral and citrus notes, and I guess that's the reason Mara wrote to wait 5 minutes to let it blend with the skin. For me it is more like 10-15 minutes, but after that Soft&Summery becomes very much what the name suggests, soft and creamy floral with a touch of sun in it.

 

Floral notes are very light and pretty, and with citrus accord this scent makes me think of sitting in a beautiful flower garden with sun shining bright. Florals and citruses are also very well blended, I can't pick up any individual notes other than lily. Or it's just the fact that my nose isn't the best out there :) Coconut cream, vanilla buttercream and musk notes blend into warm and clean skin scent that acts as a base in this one. Not laundry type clean, more like a baby smell type. And it stays close to skin what makes this whole scent appear very natural, like it's a part of me. Not sure I'll be wearing this often during colder months, but right now I'm truly enjoying this beautiful summery scent.

 

And I'm sorry it took me so long to review this! I've been traveling a lot this summer and did not have my laptop with me

First of all -- Fleur!!! So good to see you here!

 

And what a marvelous creation Soft and Summery is. When I read the description I knew I had to have it -- creamy, citrus, and white floral combo sounded so delicious. It actually goes on me pretty quiet but the dry down is truly fantastic. It's delicate, subtle and quite complex. Definitely a skin scent and very natural. It's so well-blended I can't pick out any notes -- the citrus is translating more as a very quiet sparkle than a scent to me. This could be worn in any setting -- church, the office, anything -- and be entirely appropriate, while still making the wearer feel feminine and beautiful. I agree that it is clean, yet not laundry clean -- more as if I were a fairy tale princess living in a cabin in a clearing and washing my face with the dew off the flowers first thing in the morning. While butterflies and birds brought each piece of clothing for me as I dressed. Absolutely stunning, and I'm so glad I got a bottle!

I don't think I can top either Fleur or Blackcat's reviews of this amazing fragrance but I also wanted to say how much I love this creation! It really is soft and summery, and I agree it's perfect for any setting. It goes on very sheer and has a beautiful dry down. It's a perfect blend of notes with a sweetness from the fruit and softness from the florals, no note overshadows another I truly just get a beautiful gauzy scentual aura when wearing this. It's quickly becoming one of my favorites, really glad I got this one.

Blackcat! I'm so glad to see you too :)

And whoa that's a beatiful review! I love the picture of fairy tale princess doing her morning toilette with birds and butterflies around!

If you remember my thread with pe ideas for every season, this scent is loosely based on what I had in mind for summer. And Mara really is a genius! It is amazing, how well she captured this soft summery vibe I tried to describe.

Thank you Saffron! I'm glad you like it!
