It’s every part I may hope for in a rose fragrance, filled with complexity, shadow and lightweight; an olfactory “nose-gasm” (or rose-gasm) at each sniff. Opening with a moist and dewy rose, which rapidly morphs into one other facet of rose this one spicy, then one other rose as lush as a blowzy David Austin champion rose, the impact is one in all a morning go to to a proper rose backyard; shifting amongst varied varieties every with their very own distinct rosy scent. There are spicy roses, aquatic-smelling roses, roses which have the aroma of rose jam or pink rose Macarons from the bakery. A surfeit of roses till you head is swimming with rose overload. In response to Angela St. John,” Solstice Scents Orient Rose was speculated to be for Valentine’s Day 2019 and was so standard we bought out. Will probably be again in inventory by mid week (June 11th or so)”.

A real scented chameleon, Edge Of The Evening wears fairly otherwise relying on temperature. Once I first examined it in March, the climate was nonetheless chilly, and Edge Of The Evening was a ravishing traditional chypre, with the oakmoss, patchouli, and oudh taking middle stage like true divas. Now with the hotter climate, it’s far more gourmand with the spices, amber, and musk within the forefront. The chypre vibe remains to be there, simply dialed again. Whatever the shifts and adjustments, the perfumes wears terrifically in any climate, and to anybody who could be “oudh-averse” concern not, forefront or background, the oudh is masterfully blended to assist and floor the lighter notes, giving Solstice Scents Edge Of The Evening its very personal edge over related scents and making it that significantly better
Notes: Amber, oakmoss, patchouli, bergamot, black vanilla, purple musk, buddha wooden, clove EO, star anise EO, cinnamon, lavender absolute, oudh
