Iíve been waiting forever to get a sample of this. Luckyscent was out of stock of them for months. When they emailed me last week to say they were back in stock, I was on it!

First there is a strong sour citrus/fruit accord that can be surprising if youíre not prepared (I wasnít). With no fresh magnolias in bloom to compare to, Iím going to have to go by recollection. From my remembrance of last yearís magnolias, this is very like the ones in full bloom that have been on the tree for a few days and while still firm and waxy, are browning around the edges in the sun. There is that aspect of rot that one finds in a gardenia a few days old, but this rot is not mushroom/cheese rot like gardenias, but lemons that have sat in the bottom of the refrigerator drawer for too long. Itís greenish and bright and sour and a bit spicy. The magnolia here is not a very creamy one, but there is a peppery bite like the magnolias here have. Itís not the rained-on, greenish, barely open ones that wet your nose when you smell them, but the wide open, pollen-dusted variety. There is probably just a touch too much lemon here and not quite enough creaminess/waxiness, and the floral accord here probably contains too much orange blossom. But really, this is pretty great!

As it starts to dry down, the sour accord and the orange blossom pipe down a bit and it feels more sheer and wearableó like something I might risk wearing to work. This has possibilities.

For me this one has a weird opening that l find hard to describe. lt's kind of vegetal, almost like iris, but more like steamed vegetables with a dash of vinegar. After a few minutes l get more condiments in the shape of salt & pepper, & at this stage, when sniffing from a distance, it reminds me of the marine-infused lily of Malle's Lys Mediterranee. Twenty minutes in, a zesty grapefruit note comes forth to dominate the fragrance for the next hour, before it all settles into a soft & woody white floral. From here it doesn't develop further, but projects moderately, & slowly fades over the course of ten hours.
Apart from that opening, this is a pretty & unexpectedly tenacious fragrance. l can't say whether it resembles a real magnolia grandiflora, but the heart smells close to how l'd imagine it to smell.

I haven't loved a scent with such passion and I have with Sandrine for years. The scent is unique and divine. It is almost photo realistic of the smell of a glorious citrus garden. My use of superlatives is over-the-top because I love this juice that bloody much.
Grandiflora is a beautiful store with wonderful staff and now a beautiful scent.

BTW I am not totally biased their other scent Michel (Michael?) was lovely but definitely didn't rock my world.
