    Those notes seem a bit “screechy” to me.

    • Robin says:

      Gosh, hard to tell from a list though. But could be!

  2. juicejones says:

    They must have had some vanilla lying around. I don’t understand why that is in there.

    • Robin says:

      Really? You guys read more from the list of notes than I do.

      Ayala Moriel said on Twitter recently that vanilla was the salt of perfumery…

      • kindcrow says:

        Wow. That is the perfect description of vanilla in perfumery, IMO. There are so many times when a perfume is missing the grounding influence of vanilla.

        • kindcrow says:

          OTOH, the vanilla in this one does seem out of place to me. The muguet seems out of place, as well. The rest of the ingredients combine to sound like a linen spray or high-class air freshener, IMO.

    • des esseintes says:

      If the birch is birch bark it will more than enough take the sweet edge off the vanilla. Birch leaves aren’t extracted to my knowledge. I think they headspaced it for a Calvin Klein masculine.

    I don’t want my memory’s ankles to swell.
