Neil Morris – Storm

Perfume: Storm
Perfumer: Neil Morris
Source: Neil Morris Fragrances
Size: 1mL EdT

Perfumer’s Notes:
Top – Papaya and Lime
Heart – Delphinium and Hyancinth
Base – Tonka Bean, Golden Musk, Earth and Marine Notes

Date: 8/10/07 Weather: 85 degrees

Wearing: Top reminds me of Sprite with extra lime. Within 30 seconds it begins to smell like a bunch of flowers I don’t recognize (reminded me of honeysuckle and lily. Looking at the notes later, it made sense). It maintains that floral note until 10 minutes in when a green note starts to make a brief appearance. 15 minutes in – Tonka (in it’s vanilla iteration), “honeysuckle” and some marine notes. In 30 minutes it becomes green and marine with a bit of grass. 45 minutes in, a hint of vanilla appears (the Tonka again), which strengthens through the rest of the evolution of this scent. The scent is gone in 3 hours.

Comments: I really like that surprising Sprite note at the beginning of this scent. It then becomes very floral and the base registers “green.” Quite fond of this one.

Date: 9/15/07 Weather: N/A

Comments: It seemed like a spicy floral on top, then stays a nice light floral throughout the wearing – green, vanilla and honeysuckle. I wore this while moving (heavy physical labor) and it wore beautifully. Occasionally, I’d catch a whiff of myself and realize I smelled good.

Date: 4/15/08 Weather: 60 degrees, clear, Orlando

Comments: More herbal on the top this wearing. Still healthy lashings of vanilla and honeysuckle along with that “marine” note. Pretty stuff.
