Not a single mention of Ava Luxe on your site –- have you tried anything from that line? I've heard good things about Cafe Noir and I'm eyeing the licorice one, Absinthe, because I always eye the licorice one.
Yes, I know it's another of those perfume shops with a hundred different fragrances and a charming little story for each one, and I've been burned in the past by the artless iron blocks that often emerge from them. (Funny how the charming little stories are never actually about artless iron blocks.)
Look at Green Tara. Sandalwood. Oud. Vetiver. Patchouli. Amber. Labdanum, Benzoin. Rose. Musk. Lavender. Frankincense. Lemongrass. Lemon. Bergamot. Geranium. Peppercorn. Is there any way a fragrance with all those notes can't be artless? It just seems so reckless. And yet I want to try it. I'm on the precipice of another artisan disaster.
I've never in all my born days made it over to Ava Luxe, but this Green Tara looks to be chock full o'Katie-twitterpating ingredients. And I like the aesthetic and artwork on the website, too.
