Comments: Starts with a fruity/waxy rose. Then the top strips away and it becomes a very green mossy chypre. Took a 45 minute walk to the Metro and noticed that I was now wearing a spicy rose. Got to work, made some coffee and now I’m wearing a balsamic /vanillic musk with a hint of violet and rose. A serious shape-shifter this one. Stays with the balsamic / vanillic musk with violets and rose for the duration. Gone in 4 hours.

Comments: Wearing this with the remains of the Perfumers Workshop Tea Rose. Not a good idea. This perfume smells like a fluoride treatment as a result of the shared smells. Orange-“flavor” (but really medicinal). Yuck. Couldn’t keep it on long enough to let it evolve. Showered and scrubbed after 1 hour.

Date: 5/3/09 Weather: 57 degrees, rainy

Comments: Very astringent “rose.” Almost chemical. Could be a result of my allergies, but this is really horrible. Not sure what happened to the beauty when I first wore it – because the last 2 wearings have been incredibly disappointing (at best).
