Comments: Wearing this over 6hr old Neil Morris – Midnight Flower. Hippie Chic starts with coconut and a hint of celery. Becomes a much stronger coconut scent. When sniff wrists – healthy dose of patchouli. Becomes an almost suffocating tropical white floral after 30 minutes. Stays this way for a good 7 hours. Still going after 9 hours. Finally gone the next morning.

Comments: Was in the mood for patchouli. Got a musty patchouli. About 20 minutes in – the effect reminds me of hanging in a stylish grandmother’s closet – the scent of dusty clothes, the remains of expensive perfume, and dead skin. 90 minutes in, noticed that it had become significantly more floral. Can definitely smell the nag champa in this phase along with a hint of coconut and a healthy lashing of vanilla. Still contains a slightly dusty dead skin note among all of that. At 7 hours – smells like vanilla with a hint of flowers (roses, to my nose). Really pretty drydown.
