Riddle me this, BPAL...
Who on god's green earth can take a fairly straight forward scent like, say, the unpronounceable
The ghostly White Women of the Scottish highlands. They seduce unwary travelers by night with their unearthly beauty and mesmerizing dancing. They engage their victims in a wild, hypnotic dance, and once they reach exhaustion, the demonesses exsanguinate their partners with their vampiric kiss. Talk about a quick courtship. Grapefruit, white tea, apple blossom and ginger.
In the imp one can clearly smell grapefruit and a kind of floral/tea aroma. It is light, pleasant, with a real kick behind it.
Then put it on and get.....lilac! And not fake perfume lilac, but the actual smell of being a little girl and going outside the play under huge purple cones of blossoms. I can only guess that it must be the grapefruit that evokes the sharp tang of fresh greenery.
*raises hand* That's me. I'm her. Lilac. From grapefruit, tea, ginger and apple blossoms.
This, this can only be described fully as being my new Happy Place scent. I am just in love with it, though utterly perplexed.
