Black lilies, red roses, and baby’s breath.

A mild light flower scent with a shot of something metallic in the background.  Vanilla? Midway? The dry down is a lightly warmed gourmand scent.  Clean soap, roses. After 2hrs it faded to a faint rose-soap scent.  This is bottle worthy for me.

In the bottle: nail polish remover
Wet: Beautiful red rose like the one in Peacock Queen (that one does the wierd nail polish thing on me too) and lily
Dry: The lily goes slightly soapy but the rose stays so fresh and sweet. Smells very elegant and clean.

This is such a beautiful scent. I just got my order of Liliths in today, and I'm usually more of a gourmand person, but I could not stop huffing my arm with this! I waffled on this one when I ordered because I have so many rose scents, but this is stunning! So glad I got a bottle!

I was pipe-dreaming of something akin to Lucille with this, with the rose/black lily combo, but now that it's here, it reminds me more of Fresh and Blooming as a Rose from BPTP's Yules a couple years ago. Except I like this one better, as it has a "perfumy" element to it that smells more mature and upscale than Fresh and Blooming. I'm getting this very elegant lily note and a rose that comes across as "sweetened," like maybe there's an unspoken amber note in here. Definitely going to be looking into a bottle. Rose fans need this.

Bewitching rose, the black lily adds a touch of darkness that makes me think of black satin and red lips.
The baby's breath gives it sort of a vintage vibe.
Very much a low throw skin-scent on me, intimate and elegant.

Red roses, darkened by black lily. This is a dark, satiny, red rose. Much more mature and sophisticated than what you'd expect. Very vintage style.

I'm not sure what baby's breath smells like, but this is very lily-heavy on me. Right when I put it on it borders on SOAPY, but there is something sinister underneath it - so....sinister soap? I'm not sure.

I skin-tested this randomly, without looking at the notes first, and my first thought was "this smells like Lucille Sharpe!"  When I looked up the notes and saw the combination of red roses and black lilies, it suddenly made sense why I was reminded of Lucille Sharpe.  This isn't quite as complex as Lucille Sharpe. It's missing the plum musk that darkens Lucille, *but* it's a passable dupe if you're running really low on your beloved bottle of Lucille Sharpe and don't want to sell a kidney to get another.
