Ava Luxe – Palisander

Perfume: Palisander
Perfumer: Serena Ava Franco
Source: Ava Luxe
Size: 1mL

Notes: Palisander wood, Japanese Hiba Wood, Amber, Incense, Musk, Pink Pepper, Cinnamon, Vetiver

Date: 9/22/07 Weather: 85 degrees

Wearing: Greenish wood. Settles into a green, almost piney, clean scent. Linear

Comment: Perfect golf scent for hot weather. Very clean, green and woodsy. Subtle. Big fan.

Date: unknown Weather: 55 degrees

Comments: Again, the greenish, almost piney wood. Picking up a hint of cumin this time with some smoke and pepper. Towards the dry-down, pick up the amber and cinnamon within the wood. Then becomes a musky green wood. More complexity in this wearing. After 2 hours – becomes a very close-wearing greenish floral. It fades dramatically after 3 hours – but if you get your wrist very close to your nose and concentrate – you can pick up a green floral musk.

Date: 11/17/07 Weather: 50 degrees, very breezy and clear

Comments: Cooler weather brings out the wood and a bit of funk. Stays woody. This is a better warm weather scent.

Date: 9/14/08 Weather: 90 degrees, humid

Comments: I’ve been wearing this through the summer as a golf scent. The more I wear it, the more I love it. A gorgeous green musk. Still fades a little fast for me.
