Thread: Poppies

  1. #1

    Default Poppies

    I have a linen and room mist I bought from the Virgin VIE store on Oxford Street several years ago and it's lovely. The notes are poppies, grass and sweet camomile. I wondered if there was anything close to this I could wear myself?

    Poppies is an imaginary note, BTW. Actual poppies are scentless. I don't know the fragance you mention, so otherwise I can't comment.
    Please, spritz responsibly.

    Poeme by Lancome has two imaginary flowers in it and one of them is poppy:

    "Two imaginary flowers play opposite each other: the fresh and frosty Himalayan blue poppy and the voluptuous and carnal datura of the sands."

    Flower by Kenzo is supposed to evoke poppies, which have no scent of their own. Kenzo figured it SHOULD have a scent though (I agree!) so his house came up with one. People seem to either love it or hate it.
    Currently wearing: Touaregh by Il Profumo

    I guess it's just the grass and sweet camomile then.
    I've tried Grass by Marc Jacobs - lovely but smells nothing like this (it is a nice replacement for Gap Grass, however!)

    very interesting from what i know you cannot extract the gardenia scent either and i think also the same for carnations.
