Vohina fragrance notes

Reviews of Vohina

Vohina is not bad, but there's nothing special to it. First, white flowers, and almost immediately, honey. Some woody notes make it "not too sweet", but nothing pyramidal.

And then, I edit to say I change my mind because of the sweet spices and I'll buy a full bottle. From neutral to thumbs up.

Vohina is a sweet peach/honey fragrance. It opens with a very natural smelling peach. In the dry down the honey and hay come in to make this a very natural smelling fragrance. It reminds me of a peach tree we had in our back yard. When it bloomed it's flowers smelled just like Vohina. Perfect for those of us who like sweet fragrances. It goes very well with the hot summer days.

Disappointingly predictable peach / honey floral combo that smells more like discount hair products.

Opens conventionally with a peach floral and lavender honey pairing with neither note making any concerted attempt at authenticity (despite the line's press). Consequently, Vohina starts off smelling like hair products. Clearly humiliated by their own vapidity, both notes flee the scene quickly, leaving what could only be described as an acceptable, but utterly dull hay body. The hay's slightly more natural, but it's sweetened by remnants of the opening notes and displays a touch of musk, yet it's cloying without being particularly loud. For as much as I'd like to report this as minimalist (given Guillaume's usually exceptional work), a good minimalist composition would consider space as a meaningful component. This has no space; it's just a handful of complimentary notes apathetically rendered.

Pros: It's not offensive-smelling, just offensively boring.
Cons: Painfully obvious and uninspired."

Peach and honey start out precariously balanced on the top of the hay notes like small children on a tall horse. Once the fragrance settles the hay becomes more dominant, until the scent melds into ... something changeless, sweet and smooth with no distinguishing features. Like a face in a photo that's been so airbrushed into frozen pleasantness it's lost those individual, quirky features that made it alive. Not a bad scent , just left me feeling it was somehow unnecessary.
I get similar indifference to much of Huitieme Art, odd when I like several of Parfumerie Generale's creations.

Vohina would be blandly sweet if it wasn't for the dry, almost woody, warmth to it. Yes, it does smell like a bunch of hay with fragrant wildflowers thrown in, though in an extremely sanitised and perfumey version. Its sweetness is a honeyed sweetness, but the honey is kept in check by that dry note into something softly powdery, never sugary or syrupy. Still, it's to one-dimensional and conventionally girly-cute for me, but in a rather pleasant and well-done way. At least it's not cloying, and that's saying quite a lot for this genre.
