Does anyone else remember that perfume "White Shoulders"? Because when I opened this imp, that was all I could think of! It was my mother's favourite perfume for many years (my grandmother's, too, I believe), and I used to play with it when I was little--Juliet definitely
conjures up youth and childhood for me.
It's almost the same on my skin as it is in the bottle: very perfume-y and floral, and for some reason, I love it. None of the moldy musk problems I've been having, either!
When it dries, the perfume dies down and lets the florals take over. Very strong lily and honeysuckle notes. I adore
honeysuckle. Also, something about it reminded me of lily-of-the-valley, another favourite of mine.
As the day wore on--and the dabs on my wrists wore off--there was a bit of a baby powder scent, but where I'd slathered it on my neckline, it retained a heady, almost womanly, aroma. Very interesting dichotomy, not too different from Juliet herself.
(And it got an "Ooh, that's nice
!" from a Member of the Opposite Sex, which is always welcome
This isn't something I'd wear every day, but it's perfect
for special occasions and certain moods. Might have to put this on my 5ml wishlist...
