Very, very sweet. Smells like a makeup case. Powdery. Very feminine in style.
Seems a bit old-fashioned or old-school, like something someone's auntie might wear.
Pleasant for its style.
A fluidy tea note projects out at the beginning a very light and musky floral blast that is so natural and airy. Some undiscerned dried fruits are mixed in the blend together with some tasty spices embracing the natural elements with a certain level of almost edible appeal. The smell is so romantic and quiet as a colored garden of Provence under the delicate spring sun, barely funned by the whiffs of the breeze. The florals are ethereal and natural, never too angular or too lymphatic. After a couple of hours the delicate floral vibe tends to fade towards a smooth ambery and musky bed that envelops the fruity-floral amalgam with a touch of woody powder. The outcome is so airy and silent as a sunny late spring afternoon of the farm. Not bad at all with this poetic creation.

Artemisia is one of only two fragrances from Penheligon that I find bottle worthy. Others here have don a good job of describing it, so I will add my voice as one who finds Artemisia a very pleasant addition to my wardrobe. I find it wearable by les hommes.
I can smell the predominace of apple
and the faint smell of Vanilla those
two scents dominate the other notes
some people have an talent to seperate
the other notes easely i have i bit of an hard time with it I Can smell Eather
2 notes or 3 notes out of 12.
this is one of the Plain Jane scent
from my collection a bit dull.
For the short amount of time that this supposed 'Eau de Parfum' lasts it is rather lovely. An envelope of fresh fruity sweetness and warm vanilla, its easy to see why it would be popular. For all those ladies who love the typical 'fruity-floral' high street fragrance Artemisia should definitely be given a try. It can sometimes be a bit tinny and artificial however, and this can prove more likely by the fact that it will demand repeated applications because it is so fleeting or compulsive in equal measure.
This downplay does however make it an ideal fragrance for those who want to avoid something strong, as it probably the lightest of the houses' scents.Delicate, feminine and soft, it would be worth trying to see how it lasts.
