PERFUME: La Belle au Bois Dormant
AVAILABILITY: Permanent \ Ars Amatoria
OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: The Sleeping Beauty. A gentle, lovely scent, slightly soporific, but beautiful in its quiet repose. Plumeria and white pear, Damascus rose, tuberose, magnolia and evening dew.
BEFORE I SMELL: You know I love my white florals! The tuberose and magnolia sound so promising! What is more, I love fairytales. Maidens and castles and dragons… Not that I read them but I like them as an inspiration.
FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Magnolia and sweet aromatic pear. In my opinion, the evening dew must be a moss note but I am not sure.
WET ON SKIN: Plumeria, Pear and moss. The moss\evening dew\ green note give to this perfume an old world vibe.
DRY DOWN: Powdery roses and fruity magnolia.
In general: A Clean floral with an aquatic aspect.
FINAL THOUGHTS: This definitely smells how I could imagined the sleeping beauty must smelt. The moss from the walls of her castle and the flowers that cover her bed all covered in the evening dew…
