I tried this based on a recommendation by a fellow BN'er. As it turns out, it was a great suggestion for me! A pretty, modern EDT peony soliflore, with no baggage. This is the way I like my fragrances, understated and elegant, without weird overtones or harsh edges. This is great for all ages, as I think high schoolers or college women could pull this off, and it would not seem out of place on mature women either. I purchased the amber solid perfume, but have not worn them together yet. Will update when I do. :)
I always liked the peony. This is a nice peony frag that carries it in all sequances. also the base which is very close to skin makes it very natural and wearable.
Very pleasant floral, however lacking in depth and character and simply fades to nothing on my skin. Altogether forgettable
The concept here is really neat, and I think it works beautifully! The cedarwood jumps up fast in the begining but quickly and quietly mellows allowing a soft, clean patchouli time to shine. The peony note is present throughout, which is not cloying whatsoever. Quality for sure. I can't wait to try layering this one with the amber...I'm extremely excited to see a hot mainstream consumer market being encouraged to combine fragrance. Stella in Two Peony is an all around winner!
Unlike its Amber counterpart, you CAN wear this alone, albeit it is a little flowery for my tastes. Add the Amber and it's very nice and warm.
