Your Nasomatto China White review prompted me to take a quick sniff of my sample. It's a sprightly little thing, even out of the vial, the perfect perfume for a woman who talks too fast, walks too fast, collides with passersby, veers off in conversations, veers off in relationships. It's Holly Golightly. It's Holly Golightly if Holly Golightly bought her own perfume and didn't rely on creepy old men with their barrels of Chanel No. 5.
I got all of this just out of the vial. Imagine when I finally wear it.
I also tried B Never Too Busy to Be Beautiful B Scent, the lemon-rose. Unfortunately, the sample bottle comes with a surprisingly wide opening and I accidentally poured too much of it (basically, the entire bottle) into my hands. It's extremely likable and I can see why Tania Sanchez is charmed by it.
But the lemon-to-rose ratio is similar to standing in a kitchen shaded by a large lemon tree, washing your hands with lemon soap before squeezing fresh lemonade and grating the remaining rind for a lemon cake or lemon meringue pie or lemon tart or all three when your mother suddenly appears and offers you some lemon tea cookies. Oh, and across the street and three blocks down from the kitchen is a little rose garden.
Quite a zesty summary of B Never B Scent. I like how often your mother appears in your perfume considerations.
No, this time it was YOUR mother, not mine. My mother is a hardcore Italian and would never serve anything as refined as lemon tea cookies. To lemon tea cookies she'd scoff, "That's what white people eat."
The entire world considers my mom white. But not her. And in her mind it's the lemon tea cookies that make the difference.
