Delicious tart-crisp apple, and a slightly soapy-powdery sweet floral, amongst maybe others - not traditional or heady florals, though. Girly and fresh and sweet. Wet:
Almost candy-sweet - it reminds me of Pink Moon & Candy Phoenix but with apples as the fruity note. Almost a little spicy, and I get the impression of spring florals - maybe some phlox? Definitely more juicy apple than tart, I agree with the golden delicious description.Dry:
I don't get rose, and while there definitely could be some apple blossom in this - it's so richly and deeply apple-y that it seems very likely - the soapy floral is something else. I also think there may be a little carnation in this, because it's even spicier and warmer. Later:
The candy scent has a caramel/brown sugar edge, now. Definitely a vanilla note of some sort that's amping on me, and I totally agree with the 'baked apple' (though this still smells fresh as well to me) thing. There's also a warm sort of woody note. Oh! the floral is SUNFLOWER!Summary:
It smells pretty autumnal, and as it dries further it reminds me of Agrat-Bat-Mahlat, L'Autunno & above all, an apple-spiked L'Estate. I strongly suspect there's an amber note in addition to the sunflower producing the warm powder effect. Great throw & longevity.
It's really quite an intriguing wrist-sniffer and the apple note holds so much better than most, but it's a bit too warm & powdery for me. Thank you wednesday white for the chance to try this!
