Perfume: Sampaquita
House: Ormonde Jayne

Date: 7/5/09 Weather: 75 degrees, cloudy
Starts with a slightly sour grassy blast that quickly mellows to a slightly sweet, stunningly blended light floral. Cannot pick out the notes on this one – maybe a hint of wood, hint of rose, hint of jasmine. There is the signature “pink pepper” accord weaving through this – but after 5 minutes, it is really an accent rather than the centerpiece. Enough to identify it as from this house. Became sweeter and muskier (definitely picking up the ambrette seed) after 4 hours. Gone around the 7 hour mark.
