I still can’t believe I thought I didn’t like these perfumes. 🙂 But it was at the beginning of my perfume love so I think that lack of sniffing experience is a good excuse. 🙂
It’s not often I encounter a perfume that upon the first smell makes me love it. It happened with Iris Pourpre too.
For me, it starts lightly citrusy (very lightly and only because I now always expect some variant on that so I focus), masculine smelling (even though on Luckyscent it’s in the feminine category) and I have no idea what else I’m smelling but whatever it is, it seems to be wet. 🙂 Not aquatic but like you immersed it in water and took it out, and now the perfume smells wet. It smells of a green herb sprayed with a lot of juicy fruit. You can smell and feel the juiciness of this one.
Notes by KM: bay rose, rare spices, hesperides, rose, green notes, musk
Notes by Luckyscent: rare spices, blood orange zest, green of angelica, may rose
When combined, they give a better precision, as I understand where the juicy fruit is coming from.
This is one of those perfumes that notes cannot describe and even if you try to describe it in such a manner, it wouldn’t even come close. Because it smells refreshing, alive, smilingly happy and energetic at the same time, while retaining the dewy feel until drydown. You can feel the spices pinching your nose lightly (I thought it smelled like cinnamon, possibly clove too).
And here is where I came to a wall.
As you can see, green notes are listed and I couldn’t smell them out. The thing is, I knew from the start that there had to be something green in there but the whole time I was smelling my wrist, I couldn’t smell them out. I mean, I can tell by the way the whole structure smells they are there, I just can’t smell them.
Does this happen to anyone else?
Since today was a tiring day, I was very glad to wear this on my wrist and be able to smell for instant pick-me-up. It just plain works for me. 🙂
And as this discovery made me very happy, what didn’t make me happy at all, quite the contrary, is the fact that Keiko Mecheri site only ships samples to US and the line is not available in Croatia. So, if I want to try the rest of the rather large collection (and I want to), I need to order them from a third party. Eventually I guess…
