Beautiful, radiant daughter of Demeter… her lovliness was so exquisite that even Hell itself could not resist her. Pomegranate and rose.

I received this as a free imp. Not knowing what the notes were or anything about it, it smelled like sweet lemon in the bottle, and then olive oil and lemon on my skin. After a half hour it smells like olive oil and hints of rose on my skin. I don’t know if this scent just isn’t working well with my sniffer, my chemistry, or what. I’ll try shaking it up (forgot to do that) and let my husband smell and let ya’ll know if the pomegranate or rose get stronger than the lemon and carrier oil.

Opens with a scent of ripe pomegranates bursting with flavor while wet. As it dries, a pleasant bouquet of roses comes forward, however, the pomegranate takes a backseat the longer it dries and I’m left with a powdery rose scent with just a hint of pomegranate juice.

This smells AMAZING. May be my new favorite perfume.

A favourite. Uplifting sweet scent with a tartness softened by romantic rose.

Sweet and juicy while wet, giving way to tart rose on the dry-down. Persephone reminds me of a scratch-and-sniff rose sticker in a book I had as a kid: unquestionably rosy, but with an added tanginess to make it more fun. I would call this scent more flirtatious than sexy, more daytime than nighttime.

I like this one. I picked it as an imp and what I noticed was a sort of powdery smell, which I presume was the rose. The pomegranate picked up in the middle of the day and faded away on me towards the evening, leaving a light, fresh scent. Pick this one if you like the smell of cosmetics and sweetness.

This used to be my favorite scent. The rose and the pomegranate blended together to make a lovely daytime scent, and the rose note stayed quite a while on me. But, something in my body chemistry changed *glares at new bc pills* and now it smells like powdery roses and Sweet tarts. It’s not horrible. But, it’s not the sexy fragrance it once was. YMMV Everyone’s body reacts to scents differently.

Persephone was definitely a delicate floral scent, and it wore very well on me. The rose was the most noticeable scent, but overall it was a light, young floral that didn’t seem too “old lady” like so many floral perfumes seem to me. It reminded me just a little of my favorite non-BPAL perfume, Love’s Baby Soft, so if you’re a fan of that but looking for something with a bit more flower power, Persephone would be a great scent to try.

I’m not particularly fond of rose scents, but I received an imp of Persephone in my most recent order and decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the pomegranate note balanced the rose note creating a juicy tart rose. Don’t get me wrong it is still a “rose” perfume, but rose scents usually scream “grandma” to me, but the juiciness of Persephone feels fresher, younger. I’m still not sure if this is fully bottle worthy, so I’m going to keep the imp and sample it again. Overall, this is a fresh, bright, uber girly scent. Very pretty with great longevity.

Tangy fruity in the bottle, and still so upon application. Rose emerges while drying. The pomegranate seems to be preventing the usual powdery quality of rose, keeping it bright and sharp. The floral mixed with tangy red fruit remind me of hibiscus tea. Dry, the pomegranate is barely detectable on its own, having stepped back to boost the rose with a hint of juiciness.

The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself.
Inspired by and created for my beloved Tedwin: my eternal, beautiful, wicked Dorian Gray. Refined, elegant, and lovely, with a noble bearing and seemingly gentle air. This blend is an artful deception: a sweet gilded blossom lying over a twisted and corrupted core. A Victorian fougere with three pale musks and dark, sugared vanilla tea.
The sublimely beautiful, fiercely independent, impeccably cultured, fascinatingly worldly and witty courtesans of ancient Greece. A seductive and dazzling blend of golden honey, fiery patchouli, sweet fig and clove, and a blushing touch of ylang ylang.
Red musk, blackened patchouli, opium tar, inky oudh, champaca flower, pomegranate pulp, frankincense, and tobacco.
Evocative of the sea’s unplumbed mysteries. Gentle and lovely, but menacing and profound. Coconut, Florentine iris, hazelnut and opalescent white musk.
