After wearing Pearl by Apothia a few times, the word that comes to mind is SMOOTH. From start to finish it's a nicely balanced and full-bodied scent. Quite long lasting, but never overbearing in any regard. It opens with a slight citrus note and then becomes all about orris and amber, with a hint of musk. It dries down to a lovely, warm skin scent. It's subtle and elegant, perfect for any occasion.
The notes are shiso leaf, plum blossom, peony, orris and warm golden amber.
Pearl was made in 2009 to celebrate 30 years of Ron Robinson at Fred Segal in Los Angeles. The perfumer is Stephen Nilsen of Givaudan. It's available in edp, in either 15 ml or 50 ml.
