Goat’s milk, peonies, carnation, honeycomb, and vetiver.

The vetiver and carnation seem to anchor the blend in an earthy place. The goat is very chill and so are all these notes! There is a subtle creaminess from goat's milk, a subtle sweetness from honeycomb, and the peony is clearly identifiable but doesn't dominate. The vetiver and carnation are not stealing the show either, but both definitely hang out through the drydown.

The overall effect I get is an enjoyable everyday musk type of scent with a lovely hint of floral. I wore it yesterday and caught whiffs of it all day long, but it doesn't have a big throw.

I want LavenderCoffee's skin chemistry!  I got peonies.  Big peonies.  With some honeyed goat's milk.  I'm still hoping the carnation and vetiver will show up on my skin.  Peony is actually one of the few florals I enjoy, but this is really a faceful of them.

Skin chemistry is so interesting! On me, this is primarily vetiver. It's the same grassy, bitter, and slightly lemony vetiver I smell from The Man in Black. In that perfume, the vetiver adds a sinister bite, but here, it gives the impression of hay and sun-warmed fields. The floral notes are background players, especially the carnation, which mostly seems to be adding spice to the vetiver. The peony combines with the goats milk and honeycomb to become a sweet and creamy floral note. I'm not a big floral fan but I like the effect the florals have here.

 

Overall, I don't think this is rich and sweet enough to classify as a flourmand. The vetiver keeps it out of that territory for me. The throw is low but I wouldn't say that you have to struggle with huffing your wrists to smell it, it's more of a scent that you wear for your own enjoyment.

 

Does it match the painting? Yes! The flowers are definitely pink, but not overwhelming. I also think the bitterness of the vetiver represents the fuzzy black goat very well. The creamy, sweet goat milk and honeycomb combo sweeten the perfume in the same way that the goat's quiet satisfaction with its snack soften the painting.
