The languor and buzz of summer. What a serene time, perfect for the flowers, green, aquatic, and perfumy.

Possets description: Rich and deeply golden, Sunflowers is a scent which perfectly captures the radiance of Vincent's sunflower series. A thick honey base, drawn over with the fragrance of the green stem and a whiff of pollen, a background of saffron, and the distant perfume of a hidden woodland white flower. This is a perfume which will bloom on your skin with the heat and remain as a golden halo around you for the day, and a remembrance of the day into the night. Very sexy.
'Tis an ill wind that blows no minds
Sometimes scents come across as colors to me, and this one is accurate to its name - a warm yellow/orange with a tinge of brown/green. Someone on another forum mentioned that they were disappointed because this didn't smell exactly like sunflowers... which is strange because sunflowers don't really have a distinctive smell (at least not to me!) I'm lucky enough to live in the Midwest where the farmers will very occasionally plant a whole field full of sunflowers in their crop rotations; it's really just breathtaking to behold miles of drooping sunshine-yellow heads. The honey note here comes across more as the gentle sweetness of clovers than just straight sniffing a jar of honey and there's a definite floral background, not strong enough for me to really identify, but it reminds me of something soft and wild, like eglantine or mayflowers or buttercups. This is a fairly light scent on me that stays very close, though I do catch a whiff of honey when I'm moving around. Even after the initial fade it seems to last a few hours as a faint floral sweetness. If sunflowers had a distinctive scent, this is exactly what I would have imagined it to be - sweet and wild and ethereal. This will definitely be a scent I will use often over the summer!

Sunflowers starts off very honeyed, and I pick up the pollen note right away--the green aspect from stems and the soft wildflowers follow. Though there are some soft florals, as a whole blend this feels very golden to me, not really floral. This is lovely and a perfect rendition for Van Gogh's painting. It also surprised me with how Very long-lasting it is on me. This is a fragrance that to me says "perfect summer day."
