UOUO4 (prototype)

Recommended Posts

Freebie in a recent swap package, labeled "UOUO4: Prototype."


The top notes open with big white and creamy florals, like gardenia and/or magnolia, plus a green-white pollen-heavy floral, like lily-of-the-valley.


The more I sniff the more I get a delicate tannin astringency in the background, like oak bark or white tea.


Overall this is a cool white floral that opens big but settles quickly settles down to the skin. Feminine, but not innocent or girly.


I don't personally wear this combination of notes, but florals fans should seek it out.

very fresh, sweet, "after-the-shower" delicate white florals.

This reminds me really heavily of the OLLA scent "June 23, 1868" which I actually put on just today, stunningly enough! (I havent worn it in months - but winter is finally disappearing and i love to wear this type of delicate / fresh scent in the spring/summer!) 


The notes from June 23, 1868 are: True love renewed by night in an English garden: moonflower, Nottingham catchfly, Casablanca lily, evening primrose, night-blooming cereus, Queen of the Night, muted by the sepia tones of tonka, tobacco absolute, bourbon vanilla, and costus.


The biggest difference to me is that UOUO4 is stronger, and sweeter. 


I wouldn't be surprised to find many of the notes from above to be in this blend as well - most likely: moonflower, lily, night-blooming cereus, queen of the night - perhaps even bourbon vanilla because of the sweetness factor! it is never too sweet, as this is predominantly a floral blend, but the sweetness makes it very feminine and pretty.


It's quite possible there is night-blooming jasmine, or gardenia or magnolia hidden in this blend like mentioned in the first comment.


this blend is absolutely a hidden gem, what a score!

I get a pollen-dusted white lily in the bottle. Fresh and clean. On my skin I get a mix of fresh white blooms over a soft incense. It has just a bit of bite. Maybe some champaca?
