    I’d say lilac is the dominant scent here but it is balanced by the rose and wisteria. Not bad at all, but it’s very straightforwardly floral. If that’s what you’re looking for it’s a great choice!

    I’ve loved and lost this one. After misplacing it for 13 years, I found it today, and I’m astounded by the quality of the ingredients. It has not turned old at all, as cheap fragrance components so often will (even if the buyer’s cost is quite high [looking at you, Hermès]). I’m thrilled to have this glorious homage to Baudelaire back on my knuckles. It’s as subtle or decadent as the wearer wishes, depending on the amount applied, and it has a clean element that reminds me of the Sonoran desert after a long-awaited thunderstorm (with the scent of lightning included). It’s a gorgeous, masterful composition. Thank you so much for making it.

    The flower power balsam! I think this is called “heady floral”: thick, full body fragrance, saturated, you you literally need a tiny drop. Powdery but humble, not too peculiar, a smell of fashion and status. You can never go wrong with it, its like your little black dress in the perfume world. I closed my eyes and tried to identify what flowers it’s composed of, without reading a description…..so……blindly I could tell all flowers are balanced, not a single one stands out more then others. Rose, tubetose, violet. Crimson-purple colour…. should not be too complex or change on your skin much. ….I was almost right! It has rose, lilac and westeria. Red and purple! My nose wasn’t too bad.  It’s not a complex scent indeed, with only three components it smells like good classics. How old is this scent? 35-40, in full blossom of femininity! It’s not too sweet, not dark, not seductive, as a well-mannered lady should be. It’s here to last all day long. It is a good universal perfume. I am keeping it for some formal fancy event, when my hippy/witchy/gothic/clumsy self will actually put an effort to look polished. Something that I’ve never been able to achieve so far.
    …wait a second… Baudelaire again? Symbolism and decadence? Oooohhh yeah. It does give off some sibtle decadent hint. As if that polished lady has a trouble or a dark secret. Aren’t we all?  I should take my words back – the “mal” comes out after 40 min-1h. It’s not too formal and basic after all. It’s more real after you get to know it better. Aren’t we all?

    I love love LOVE this sensual floral! To me it is what Creed’s Spring Flowers should have been if it did not go all sour on me. It is sexy, not girly or grandmother like, and it does not go powdery on me like other BPAL roses. The lilac and wisteria complement the rose gorgeously and do not get to sweet. A big bottle or two is definitely in my future!

    In the bottle: The wisteria comes out first. Then the lilac and the rose come forward on the deep inhale. I knew I would love this blend based off its components. I was right. I can identify each of the florals, but neither one is overpowering the others.

    wet on skin: Everything blends beautifully. The rose and wisteria feel like they are on either end of a breath and the lilac ties them together in the middle. This is so very floral yet gentle. Not a single one of the notes overpowers the others. This is surprising because all three are strong scents by themselves. I’m really liking this one.

    worn 30+ mins: the lilac is really mellow and soft and the rose is blending more with the wisteria. I love it, my friend says it smells like clean laundry.

    3+ hours: All that remains in the forefront is a really mellow, faded wisteria. The rose is still gentle and smooth, the lilac is slightly sweetened. This is one of my more favorite floral scents. It is lovely. It brings to mind ballroom dresses and waltzes in a beautiful twilight garden.

    A strong, heady floral. The rose isn’t singular on me – it blends well with the lilac and wisteria. I like the melancholy of it, but it’s such a heady floral that I probably wouldn’t buy a full size. I will keep my imp though.

  7. xaglow

    I’m not sure I’m 100% sold on this one. I like that it isn’t powdery as some floral scents can come across as. I’m not sure I could detect any rose, even when this one was dry.

  8. Sara

    a whispery, delicate rose with a hint of lilac. wistful and romantic. it feels Victorian, like an old parlor full of lace and dried flowers.

  9. Nuri

    I got this as an imp. the Lilac and Wisteria really balance each other well with just that little hint of dirtiness from the rose in the background. It is a really nice scent
