  1. The steamed milk is STRONG so if that’s your thing, check this out. It’s cool because it smells just like a hot cup of tea and the lavender is really nice, but the sourness of the milk note is too much for me to handle, so I can’t wear this.

  2. I was convinced going into this that I would prefer the version without lavender, but I have to say it’s masterfully tempered here. Not overwhelmingly lavender-y at all. I really appreciate that. It’s about on par with London Fog for me on initial bottle sniff, and I’m super excited to try them both side-by-side. On my skin, the lavender is still playing a very minor role and I AM STOKED. This smells like the perfect cup of tea, slightly warm, oh-so-gently sweetened, and just a splash of milk. The lavender is giving it a soft herbal complexity instead of screaming “LAVENDER”. I am sensitive to that note, so this is literally blowing my mind. I legitimately did not expect to like this so much! The dry down is delightful as well. It trends towards how LF wears, lightly creamy vanilla with tea, then much later goes flat milky white tea, which is still cool because I don’t get to smell that on my skin much without it turning. I could go with either one of these quite happily. I might favor this one since I’m digging the restrained lavender, but both have left an impression.

  3. Creamy, calming, milky, sour, and lightly sweet. Milk (does have that sour aspect that true milk notes have), lightly sugared lavender, lemony Earl Grey, and a hint of non-gourmand vanilla.

    The milk seems to be the strongest note. If you like Moloko Plus, you’ll probably like this (though the milk in this seems a little more sour than the one in Moloko). On the flip side, if you don’t like Moloko, I really doubt that this would be a good fit for you.

    Love and recommend to anyone who enjoys lemony tea, lavender, or milk notes.
