Hey, look! Axions!
Yemaya: Her ofrenda is a bounty of melons and grapes, strewn with the petals of the flowers of motherhood, draped with sea mosses.
In bottle: Melony goodness...
On me: This has an amazing scent-painting. Deep blue-green and shimmering. This is a strong and peaceful scent, like deep water full of life. Saltwater. (But no "aquatic notes - those are chemical ew on me, so I know they're not here.) It has amazing throw. Calm and rich. I've put a bottle of this on my wishlist.
Lear: A regal, commanding scent, but poignant. White cedarwood, blue sage and bay leaf.
In bottle: Sagey...
On me: This moves right past sage on me into bay leaf, a rich russet smell. :) This is one of those scents that everyone I know hates on themselves, but loves on me.
Scherezade: A master storyteller who possessed unfailing courage and compassion, a sharp, quick wit, and a true understanding of human nature. Saffron and Middle Eastern spices swirled through sensual red musk.
In bottle: Musky...
On me: Yep, musky. Let's wait and see if the spices come out to play. ...and they don't. Which may just be this imp; Alanya's imp of this was like a lighter version of Kathmandu. If you're interested in color impressions, this is a muddy brown.
Neo-Tokyo: Urban metallics and an ozone-tinged breath of electric light mingled with reedy bamboo, crisp mountain air, cherry blossoms, delicate orchid and a splash of playful, wet fruits.
In bottle: Ozone with a hint of floral...
On me: Fruit - a light fruit, with fresh air. A light blue scent. Not getting any bamboo, though. :(
