Fleur Posted August 8, 2014 Share Posted August 8, 2014 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 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
