Sun-yellow petals thrusting through asphalt, a lilting touch of white musk, crisp juniper, blackcurrant bud, and ambrette seed.

 
I got to attend in person for the first time in my BPAL career thanks to a recent move to OC, California, and I was so freaking stoked to go to a lunacy event that I just basically flailed around smelling everything and being overly excited without a solid plan.
 
I WILL ADMIT that upon reading the description for Dandelions & Concrete that I was not expecting to like it. I was expecting greenery and oil on asphalt — greenery I like, asphalt I wasn't sure about.
 
Okay, but no. Not at all. This smells so fresh and uplifting. My husband got to it first in the lineup, and was all "Oh this one's nice," and I sniffed, and was like, "Wow, yeah, it's so spring!" 
 
In the bottle: Sharp, green juniper and smoothed-over new flower blooms... really new blooms, still green and kinda bud-y, and which have been stepped on by rubber-soled sneakers. 
 
On my skin: Less sharp, the juniper gets smoothed-over, too. Also stepped-on. The green opens up and it begins to smell yellow. It's bright, vibrant, but mature and self-assured. It's optimistic, but realistic. I really really like this. Low throw, but seems to be lasting.
 
The more I smell it on my skin, the more I really like it. Glad I bought a bottle.
 
And Beth was so nice! UGH I AM HAPPY ABOUT EVERYTHING TODAY.

 

Edit to add where I'd wear this: Shoe shopping for espadrilles in Spain, early April

Sunny, milky dandelions, with a hint of juniper, asphalt, and white musk. If you've been coveting a dandelion scent, try this one. It's green, summery, hot but there's enough of the other ingredients to make it more than just straight up green dandelions. These are tough, urban dandelions. Low throw, low wear length.
