I was surprised, to put it mildly, to find that elizabeth w LEAVES smelled an awful lot like TEA ROSE: the familiar rose-bush-in-blender perfume so often re-done at usually much higher prices. Lots of green leaves and thorns thrown in with the rose petals, producing a very green rose. But why in the world would elizabeth w call a tea rose perfume LEAVES? my inquiring mind wanted to know.
Having now returned from a www fact-finding mission, I feel that it is my duty to report that MISTAKES WERE MADE. It turns out that my clear, unlabeled vial, attached to a card reading LEAVES, in fact contained elizabeth w's own tea rose perfume, ROSE, described at the house's site thus: "Moist green notes and wild roses, enhanced with accents of fresh forest berries and hawthorn."
What I donned today was decidedly not LEAVES, which is described thus:
"A soft, woody base of Atlas cedar and sandalwood balances amber with green, leafy top notes."
I am still interested in trying LEAVES, but this was not that. However, I'll leave this review as a caveat to those testing perfumes from unmarked glass vials...
