Hothouse

Fabienne's description: Hothouse--proving once and for all that natural perfumes don't have to be dull and old lady-ish....Hothouse is a rampaging animalic scent without a trace of real animal ingredient. Think that plants are pansies? Wrong. Ylang ylang gets busy with jasmine and the room instantly becomes 10 degrees hotter. Remember, plants are Nature's little opportunists, they have to attract the other creatures or else they don't get to keep on, right? Well, try this one out. Unabashed, brash and bright, one of our naturals. Part of the Valentine 2009 collection.

oh my. animalic and bright is right on the money. there is definitely in-your-face jasmine in here! i'd suppose that is what creates the "animalic" quality, which on me, is quite evident. the other florals somehow combine to a very "yellow" or "chartreuse" fruity-citrus (lemony) type scent. it is sharp, with greenery in there too. all that is while sniffing close to my arm; there is something more delicate in the throw, about which my poetic brain says "orchids" but i don't know that for a fact. i have never smelled a perfume quite like this one and while it isn't something i'd often reach for personally, it is unique and evocative and if you are a fan of big and imaginative floral scents that wake you up, you might love it!
