Raw Spirit Perfume Reviews – A Roundup

Raw Spirit Winter Oak

Here’s three quick reviews of Raw Spirit perfumes:

WINTER OAK

Notes listed include clary sage, Italian bergamot, pepper, lemon, geranium, saffron, mate absolute, clove bud, olibanum, suede, oak, oakmoss, cedar, Haitian vetiver, patchouli and musk. Launched in 2014. PERFUMER – Harry Fremont

Winter Oak opens sort of foody like lemon pepper. It’s zesty-spicy. As it dries down, it’s like sage and yerba mate tea. So, it’s green, musky but there’s a bitter astringency. Like many of the other Raw Spirit perfumes… Continue reading

Hiram Green Slowdive Natural Perfume Review

Hiram Green Slowdive

Ever since I fell in love with Moon Bloom by Hiram Green back in 2013, I knew this new brand wouldn’t disappoint. Five years later and I still love Moon Bloom, a luxurious tuberose soliflore. I’ve also loved a few more from the brand (like the waxy orange blossom, Dilettante). With the newest launch, Slowdive, I’m even more impressed with the brand than I was before!

When I first sprayed Slowdive, I gasped and said, “ORANGE BLOSSOM HONEY”. It is a… Continue reading

Parfums de Marly Delina Perfume Review

Parfums de Marly Delina

Do you ever see a perfume bottle and already know what it smells like before even trying it? I feel like the packaging of Parfums de Marly Delina basically says it all. This ornate pastel pink packaging looks like it belongs in Marie-Antoinette’s apartment. It’s one of those bottles that is presenting itself as traditionally FEMININE as it possibly can.  So, of course, I expected a floral and I expected for that floral to have a lot of roses and peonies. Guess what? Delina… Continue reading

Ormonde Jayne White Gold Perfume Review

Ormonde Jayne White Gold

When it comes to Ormonde Jayne, I’m one of those people that prefers their florals. I love their style of taking something that could otherwise seem dated or overwhelming and make it feel lightweight and new. And not just light, but light, as in rays of light. I’m all about Ormonde Jayne’s radiant florals. White Gold is like the epitome of a radiant white floral.

White Gold is a radiant jasmine. It opens with the sort of pink pepper meets orange zest that has become a… Continue reading
