This one was a big risk for me as I'm not a big floral fan at all, and champagne notes in BPAL blends go icky and sour with my skin chemistry. But I decided to go for it anyway.
When I first spritzed it onto a pillow I was massively disappointed. It was just white powder-- thanks, magnolias.
And then I noticed a little note on the bottle reminding me to shake it gently before spritzing. I did so, and WOAH did that make a difference.
Exactly what I wanted from this atmo spray... it's light, gentle, and floral without being icky or cloying. The champagne note is just glorious and so unusual. I'm just crossing my fingers that vanilla will make a stronger appearance at some point.
I also got a sample of Fae Forest and initially liked it so much better that I figured I'd have to order yet another bottle to fulfill my 'light' atmo needs, but now I think Gertrude Dix's will do the trick.
I can't stress enough what a difference a gentle shake made.
EDIT: Hmmm, just tried spraying this in the air (previous test was on a pillow) and it's quite powdery again. May have to just use this for linens.
3.5/5 in the air
4/5 on a pillow
