PERFUME: Little Flora
AVAILABILITY: Limited. Yule Turn of the Screw Subseries 2012
OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: Peonies and cream.
BEFORE I SMELL: I read the turn of the screw last year and it’s a very interesting and strange book. I love how perfumers take inspiration by literary works or paintings. I also like to compare how the perfumer imagines and therefore creates the scent and how I have imagined the scent. Sometimes I smell something and I say Yeah this is it!
Despite the literary theme I love peonies! I haven’t smell one in real life thought.
FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Hazelnut! That’s wasn’t expected! Cream and a green note.
WET ON SKIN: Toasty hazelnuts and cream. Then these notes disappear and I get fresh flowers like somebody cut them from the garden 10 minutes ago.
DRY DOWN: Fresh peonies. Reminds me classic French perfumery.
The cream it’s just a hint now and helps the scent to not go totally green. On my dress I still smell the hazelnut-cream note but my skin ate it!
It’s a nice floral perfume! If this was a colour it would be pink!
