Love is Nearer Death is the Alkemia version of a floral powerhouse…a heady, deep and complex floral blend, it can be a little TOO much lol intoxicating comes to mind…I keep forgetting to buy a FB of this, it is perfect for occasions where you want to make your presence known, not really an every day type of scent ( for me at least!)
Love is Nearer Death is far more dominant on spicy orientals than the white florals; ylang ylang, carnation, and orchid are the most detectable notes, heavy enough to contain a little indole, with a creamier projection from the tuberose. The scent doesn’t change too much with the drydown; maybe a little sweeter and more watery from the lotus, with a hint of something vanillic. If theres’s any jasmine present, it must be of the soapy variety as in Foxfire, and found far into the background.
This is a very floral scent, but reminds me of flowers blooming on a humid and hot summer night.The tuberose and orchids come out to me more than the jasmine, but it is overall a complex and lovely floral scent.
