As the weather has warmed up, its time to trade in our hot cereal for cold cereal. Lostmarch Lann-Ael is the “cold cereal” of gourmands. It’s filling but never heavy.
Lann-Ael opens as this sweet creamy Korean barley tea (bori cha). It’s barley and vanilla with a hint of fruits (that remind me of dried mango and freshly sliced apples). The heart really does remind me of grains and milk. Lann-Ael dries down to a vanilla cream. In my opinion, Lann-Ael is a special gourmand in that it is actually “refreshing” on a warm day!
Notes listed include buckwheat, cereals, milk, apple and vanilla. Launched 2007.
This is an EDT so projection and longevity are below average (but I think this is average for an EDT). I get about 5 hours of wear from it on a warmer day. A lotion and shower gel are also available in this fragrance and maybe layering would help with longevity?
The 3.4 oz EDT retails for $85 at Beautyhabit. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Buckwheat and vanilla-scented milk. It’s one of those soft, milky, comforting fragrances. And it’s one of the few that could be called a “summer gourmand”.
