    Soul Drops is a delicate somewhat introvert olfactory interpretation of the romantic yearning of love pained by the Shakespearean heroine Julietta. The fragrance itself is an olfactory tribute to this romantic icon, her courage, the unconditional faith in her love for the missed beloved. The aroma is "fragrant" and dramatic, at once extremely subtle and warm/carnal. Even more rarely we can deal nowadays with something so sophisticated and natural, so dreamy and evocative (even if the price in here is unadmissible). Soul Drops is a nocturnal whisper of missed love, an impressionist Starry Night. The diaphanous roses stand in the middle of the ring of this modern powdery chypre. Echoes of powdery woods, violets and talcs jump immediately on the stages side by side with something at once more intense, organic and sensual. The opening is somewhat spicy, humid, slightly herbal/aromatic and fruity with a well dosed hint of pink or red pepper joined by bergamot, fluidy chamomille and probably apricot. The inebriating and well calibrated opening is anyway elusive just accessorial to a mastering absolute of rose damascena which appears extremely intense and realistic. Subtle violet leaves and jasmine are added in the core of the aroma and those are the perfect link with a typically chypre dry down mastered by powdery woods, talks, white musk, may be opoponax and tonka. The listed couple honeysuckle/pomegranate represents the "sensual side of the moon" providing a sort of almost sweaty and erotic fruity undertone which is perfectly joined with carnal musk and that tends to "interrupt" and shadow the powdery (somewhat eliotropic) and radiant whiteness of the basic talky/rosey cloud. The outcome is poetic and slightly decadent but not utterly original since a bunch of classics and modern powdery florals jump immediately on mind (Pił Bellodgia Caron for instance and further). Anyway a solid composition of extreme quality for "heavy weight" wallets.
