Today from the Box of Squee: Ephemera
I'm enjoying going through all the General Catalog scents like this; there's so much good stuff in there. I mean, the Limited Editions are really fun, and some of them are more than fun, they're spectacular, but the GCs--they're inexpensive and always available. Kinda like this website.
Today the Fickle Finger of Squee picked Ephemera, described as:
The scent of loss, love and the echo of time without end: sorrowful violet and chamomile with muguet, white geranium, calla lily and tea rose with a hint of autumn leaves.
In the imp: Violet and...pineapple?! Seriously, I smelled candied pineapple in there...
Wet: A lovely, soft, sweet violet, rich but not heavy.
Dry: Violet and muguet, tea rose, and at the very back, the dry leaves and a little geranium. Really one of the loveliest of BPAL's violet scents. This is not an everyday scent; it reminds me of dressing up and having some place fancy to go to. If it were the 40s, I'd wear this out on the town for cocktails and a dinner show, then romantic dancing afterwards. Something you wear with furs, an evening gown, and a hat with a veil. I'll have to see what Sir thinks.
