This "Irridescent" perfume is spicy and sweet and warm and cool all at once.. depending on the amount it is heated, it will smell differently. In cool weather it is a soft floral with earthy undertones, and in warm weather spices and woods will emerge. Over time it changes from bright and sweet to dark and whispering. The scent is not overpowering, but a light veil of delicate chords, all layered in a way that create a shimmering effect. This one was so fun to make, and different than what I normally create. The violet leaf and vanilla are offset with coriander and nutmeg, grounded with sandalwood and lifted with grapefruit. A central element of spruce and lavender cools the otherwise warm tones.
