Oh, I love the review herongale wrote!
I can absolutely see all that she wrote being true for this beautiful scent. Myself, I tested Himerus some time ago, and though it's far from as lovely as herongale's review, I'll translate what I put down in my bpal testing file.
"Fresh, floral. Anne Bonny on my other arm in contrast with this. Very fresh and very floral, without drifting into something soapy-sharpish so far. Mmmhhh... powdery, too, yes. But light. Airy. Somehow sweet, but in a flowery way. I'd have imagined this to be warmer, but it's very bright, light and airy. A little bit of something sweet underneath, texture like marzibain somehow. This is flowery-sweet. No sugar or honey or anything like that. Somewhere underneath now a warmth is showing up. Must be from the musk, this should eventually develop.
A fine scent.
Reminds of very classic lady perfume as well. Maybe the orchid.
Old fashioned, elegant, but somehow almost a candy smell underneath. Something that you'd want to catch with your tongue tip.
Huh, maybe this could inspire oral sex? Wow.
It's fairly strong now, but seems to hold the balance. Something is a little off/overloaded smelling, but that might be Anne Bonny or the combination of smells.
Himerus reminds me of something Lush. Butterball or Sex Bomb.
The Soft Touch! This 70es feel. Himerus without smelling like some aunt or neighbour lady.
Gets very warm. Still floral. White florals. Intensive, to be applied carefully.
2nd test: without Anne Bonny in contrast this doesn't really come across as a floral. Rather herby-woodsy with a floral vibe to it, as predictable from the ingredient listing. The orchid almost fruity, but the whole of the scent light and airy. Delicious."
Reconsidering what I wrote then, I don't quite see how I connected this with the Soft Touch anymore, but can confirm the butterball impression. That must be the orchid, I suppose, though I'm not aware of orchid being a butterball component.
I have to add that I'm completely untrained as far as commercial perfumes are concerned and might forward this as an excuse for drawing a line towards classic lady scents that might never have existed anywhere else but my imagination.
