i sincerely hope this blend gets an influx of thalia-lovers, because i would DIE if beth discontinued this for whatever reason. there are scents out there that are doing worse, popularity-wise, so i suppose i'll be okay.
i love it. absolutely love it. i ordered a 5mL off the bat because it sounded so perfect, and it is. my 5mL is almost out, so i have another on order. i WOULD have ordered a 10mL, but i just don't reach for this that often. this is my ultimate, "you must only wear this on sunny days when you are in a great mood," scent. if i wore this on a craptastic day with lots of mud and mosquitos, it'd seem so out of place.
this blend is BEYOND cheerful. it honestly does what it's supposed to, and i'm almost sure this should be in the voodoo section rather than excolo!
in the bottle, i get a strong alcohol scent, which is obviously the champagne. it smells very commercial perfume at this moment, something you would pick up in a spray bottle from victoria's secrets.
on my skin, the plumeria and the pear blend together, yet they retain a sparkling individuality in spite of their capacity for smelling so brilliant as a single entity. i can smell both at the same time, but the way they blend makes it seem as though there's some hybrid fruit-floral note in here that is completely separate from either of them. it dries down into a slightly creamy, bright, fizzing, joyful scent, and i never want to be without it.
it lasts fairly long for such a light scent, but after a couple of hours, some wooden notes come out and surprise the hell out of me. this is such a gorgeous, simple blend, but it's complex in its simplicity. each note evokes a different emotion: the pear makes me feel innocent, the plumeria makes me feel calm and sexy, and the champagne makes me feel bright, happy, and on top of the world.
i love it, and it's completely different from what i usually go for.
