An early work from Olympic Orchids. It smells like it's pretty much an essential oil blend with mixed fruits over green leaves and a touch of pine, as well as something that makes the whole thing smell slightly mentholated. Honestly, it's a little rough - it very much smells like an experiment in mixing oils more than a fully realized traditional perfume. When you mix fruit essential oils, you almost always get a smell closer to a mall candle store than a fine perfume, and the tomato leaf has that weird bile undertone, and putting that mentholated smell over everything is pretty quirky, though it does lead to an interesting boozy middle once everything kind of fuzes together.
That criticism aside, early scents like this from indie perfumers just make me want to give them a hug and say "I approve of you - you're made for the love of perfume instead of the desire for big money and I want you to be happy". And I also know that Olympic Orchids' later works, especially their devil scents, show a maturity and confidence that Midsummer's Day barely hints at. I'd definitely suggest sampling it, not just to support small perfumers but also because something this quirky is bound to end up having ardent admirers if they manage to find it.
