At some point I plan on comparing this side by side with Edith Cushing, and will edit my review to reflect that. But, as of now, this is exactly like a soft, lilac-blue version of Edith: a white, fluffy vanilla with a delicate floral feel to it, gently haloed with a very soft ambergris.
Edith is not very nice to me because of the patchouli note in it; to be generous, I would call it earthy, and to be less generous, a little funky. I also find its vanilla note leans a tad buttery; sometimes Edith reminds me of a thickly cut slice of yellow cake, with a thick patchouli in the background. Zorya P, however, is genuinely ethereal. Its vanilla-and-floral combo doesn't really remind me of flowers (contrasting Antique Lace, which is thick vanilla with linen and clear background flowers, or Victoria, which is a similarly "clean" and elegant musky vanilla but has very distinct rose and lily notes, or any of the Lupers I've gotten that were a vanilla-and-flowers scent) so much as it reminds me a little of the lab's vanilla orchid note - a vanilla that smells like flowers. Which i guess is a complicated way of saying it's very well-blended, this one. Moonflower is a little soapy but the vanilla note tends to cancel out soapy sharpness on me; I would say the result is like, a clean clothes kind of feel, without actually smelling like linen.
This has low throw but I keep getting a bit of it and going "wow, is that my perfume?"; this is my favorite kind of throw, so I'm double pleased. I first wore it last night and it has an outstanding wear time. I could swear I still had a very pretty sweetened musk or something on when I got ready this morning and even though I didn't reapply it, some vanilla note wore off on the collar of my coat.
Scents this reminds me of:
Edith - Sweeter, "whiter" vanilla, no patchouli (or oudh) or general earthiness.
Lyonesse - Lyonesse and Edith are basically the same scent on me, an earthy vanilla, but Lyonesse has an aquatic vibe and no funk. So of course it's similar to this.
A Specific Aberration - That one has a heavier white floral and additional frankincense but they have similar vibes. That one is foreboding, this is wistful.
Victoria - These are definitely in the same scent 'family' to me. Victoria is a daytime scent with sun-dappled grass and Zorya P is distinctly moonlit.
The Haunted Beach - These both have a similar ghostly, ethereal ambergris-and-musk vibe, but Haunted Beach genuinely smells like salt air and sea to me; this has no salt or aquatic vibes.
Antique Lace - The recent AL that the lab sold is similar to Victoria to me, but with more, almost cake-y vanilla, and actual linen, as opposed to smelling really clean. I think of all the scents I can compare it to, AL, plus the hazy ambergris of Haunted Beach, would be the closest comparison. So if you were bummed out to not purchase the lab's recent Antique Lace, I would recommend this as a substitute!
