I havent experienced either Antique Lace or Dorian, so. (Can I even call myself a BPALer after 7 years and not smelling them?!)
Soft lavender (think lavender picked a few days ago and warmed in the sun) and some of the greenery that comes with it, along side a dainty cup of white tea, a sprinkle of pink pepper to give it just a tiny bit of a kick, all on a cloud of pillowy memories. Memories of soft perfume, ivory lace squares, more dried flowers.
This is one of those oh, siiiigh scents in that you wear it to feel pretty, special or melancholy.
I dont think one bottle is enough, this is going to be a forever scent.
Reminds me of: De Vos Unicorn and The Lilac Wood
