A light, sharp, rather straightforward lavender – quite stark and very nice. The lavender in the opening is of the sharp, aromatic variety rather than the creamy, smooth variety. The vanilla is recessive and so is the ambergris. As the lavender smooths out, it has a musky feel to it. Then the light herbals begin to kick in providing a fresh clean feeling for a while… it’s a rustic but very attractive heart accord, and maybe I should call it the drydown, too, because I lose track of the scent in a little while, and it never comes back – its longevity is quite poor. I’m not usually very fond of lavender fragrances, but this one I definitely would buy if it boasted of a better life span.
