Family: Floral Oriental
Notes: lemon tree flowers, orange from California, amyris from Jamaica, iris from Florence, vetiver from Haïti and musky amber
With your thoughts flying to the exotism of the island of Jamaica and your heart living in the romantic city of Florence, Maison Francis Kurkdjian‘s Amyris Pour Femme dwells between the sunshine and the earth, being the magnificent creation of the two.
It’s a sublime perfume, the most sensual and feminine I have ever tried on! The sweet, delicate and slightly powdery scent of the amyris tree is doubled by the extremely delicate and rare scent of the orris rhizome – the two of them make the core of this perfume. They are brought together by the brightess and the freshness of the citrus notes, and the earthy touches of Haitian vetiver and the amber base give body and structure to this otherwise “common” floral perfume – the oriental twist, I personally love in my perfumes!
I’m usually loving strong and empovering scents all year round, and I’m not so keen on florals or fruitty ones! In summer I like fresh scents like Annick Goutal‘s Eau d’Hadrien!
Not too fresh, not too floral, not too deep… Amyris Pour Femme is the perfect balance of everything mentioned above, which makes it in my opinion utterly feminine and an excellent transitional perfume. And when we all celebrate femminity and everything that comes with it, other than during spring, when everything is brought to live again by Mother Nature?!
What’s your favourite spring scent?
