Cute came to mind first? It smelled a bit bubblegummy on first application, bright and pink. Apple blossoms, I assume? However, now I can smell a slight booziness from the mead, but it’s very soft. The vanilla comes out later and is very soft.
Right out of the vial I get honey and yeasty sourness, that’s the mead! Like the prettiest beer ever. Now on my skin the apple blossom turns up first. It’s a lovely clean, light floral, very much like warm weather in an orchard. This changes as it wears, I get more vanilla on the drydown, with honey trickling in around it and just that naughty note of mead. It stays fresh and outdoorsy though. It’s sweet and wholesome yet also mischievous. I absolutely can imagine tricky little pixies peeking out of the apple tree branches.
Longevity is good, but by the end the fragrance has transformed from what it was initially.
This is super pretty. It’s fresh apples hanging in the distance, with honey oats close by. The grass is subtle but noticeable, and it really does smell like standing in the cool sunshine on a spring day.
