Today from the 'Weenies: Nothing Gold Can Stay
I am so effing sleepy. To wit: this is the best I can do with this scent, and it's not helping that the entire house smells of chicken soup.
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
Dewy green leaves colored by Moroccan amber, ginseng, and rooibos.
In the decant: Very perfume-y, and not in the good BPAL way.
Wet: Better, a lot better. My first hit is a green aquatic, which normally wouldn't work on me. An almost lime green. The rooibos and the amber play really nicely together, and I confess I couldn't pick ginseng out of a line-up. I think this is a surprise hit, very fresh. It reminds me more of spring than autumn, though.
Dry: This fades very quickly. For the brief time it's here, it's lovely, fading into rooibos and amber with that little almost-citrusy green at the back. It reminds me a little of Chanel no. 19, but that's probably me misremembering.
