On to the scent! OHHHHH! Mossy citrus opens. It’s recent and funky. This solely lasts lower than a minute earlier than Hey Jude turns fairly animalic on my pores and skin. Animalic however powdery. I don’t know should you’ve ever grabbed a previous its prime rose and torn the petals off earlier than strewing them on a pathway or throwing them over a bride. This scent has the feel of that extremely delicate, powdery petals your hand. The scent of a previous good bloom in my reminiscence can also be a unusually honeyed, frivolously additionally previous prime fruit-ish rose. How has Mandy captured this so completely.
