It's a chilly morning here, so I'm in the warm ambery balsam of Balenciaga's Prelude
, my absolute favorite from this house. This might be a turn-off for some, but what initially attracted me to Prelude was its resemblance to Avon's classic Skin-So-Soft bath oil...it must be the balsam. Stunning, unique and completely unisex -this smells wonderful
on a man!
Top notes - aldehydes, allspice, bergamot
Middle notes - carnation, cinnamon, jasmine, ylang-ylang, rose
Bottom notes - Tolu balsam, amber, patchouli, benzoin, civet, vanilla
- you girls smell divine! Heartwood
initially piqued my interest in Oro
and I'm so glad she did - there are lots of things to love about it! But I seem to have a completely different take on it. To me it's a creamy and warm predominantly iris
scent, which I love as iris is usually quite cold. But how interesting! I would have never thought to compare it to Dolce Vita
, but now I'll have to give them a wrist-by-wrist test!Quarry
- What a marvelous dream! I love having perfume dreams, especially when they feature a scent that I'm not aware of or familiar with. That always stays in the back of my mind as I'm researching scents, and sometimes I discover they actually exist! I dreamt of Tabac Aurea
before I'd ever heard of Sonoma Scent Studio.
Y'all have a fantastic day!
