Oh man, so much thanks to the lovely samarablackcat for sending me this! It's so lovely!
I love the smell in the bottle--the ripe plum is *perfect*--exactly the wet, sweet, and glistening flesh of a fruit, with none of tartness of the skin, with just the barest hint of cream.
Unfortunately, at first, my skin amps the dry and dusty wildflowers and the cream, and though the plums do come through, they're not as ripe and juicy as it is in the bottle. WOE. The cream dies down and becomes more of a supporting player to round out the scent, and give it fullness, and the three notes balance each other wonderfully, with the cream dying down more and more as the scent wears on, lending mostly its sweetness without the overwhelming foody quality. (The same cream as in Zarita and Left His Nurse In a Crowd.)
I get more of the skin of the plum, as the scent dries down, and actually, now I'm sure that the Will Call frimp Daya had plum in it, because this is very reminiscent of it (minus the resins). There's a very faint aura of spice and/or flower that reminds me of Lady Una--I wonder which note that is?
I think I'm going to try this scent again on absolutely clean skin, as I think the vestiges of yesterday's perfume is lingering and causing a potpourri sort of vibe. But yay! Interesting smells! And the *waft* is lovely! Totally slightly boozy plums, green-stemmed wildflowers, and cream.
