The opening of For the Scent of It Grand Soleil is undoubtedly some of the vibrant and uplifting I’ve ever skilled. The highest and coronary heart notes bring to mind what poet Robert Bridges muses “a summer season backyard in rainbow clouds.” From a billowy musk emerges a glowing yellow lemon that might put a smile on a sourpuss and a fantasy “orange blossom water” observe that’s concurrently ultra-realistic and illusory. Pink goji berries add a tart sweetness and when paired with purple shiso leaf, a singular and curious fusion. If by now you haven’t reached fragrant ecstasy, simply await the jasmine observe.
