In the imp: a fresh, dewy, white lily-like floral with a strong 'garden like' note. It smells moist and freshly cut. Like a rainy garden scent, with crushed leaves.
Wet on skin: a crisp, wet green scent and floral. It's like being in a florist shop.
Dry on skin: this is quite amazing. This smells like a fresh flower but also its leaves, it's that clear, sharp green scent of chlorophyll, cut stems, crushed plants. The flower here is like a lily, or lily of the valley, and it smells moist, like it's covered with dew or rain. There's a definite moist flower scent.
After a while: it still smells of strong green lilies of the valley and now also honeysuckle. It reminds me of spring, and rain or mist. Like raindrops on waxen blooms. Misty fields filled with ethereal, pure flowers. It reminds me of my holiday in Devon where the weather was pretty damp and dreary, but the rain really brought out the scent of countless honeysuckles blooming all around, it smelt so beautiful...
Verdict: this is a very interesting floral scent, because not only is it a floral, but it's a freshly picked floral scent. It's reminiscent of a bouquet brought in from the rain. You can smell the leaves, the moisture, the greenery as well as the flower. It's a fresh, dewy flower scent, I think it is a kind of lily, a I'm thinking lily of the valley, as well as honeysuckle-as it dries down, I get a 'honeysuckles in the rain' scent that I smelt when I was on holiday in Devon. It's a lovely, clean floral scent that I think will be even better during springtime. Gorgeous.
