Whoo! There’s a perfume inspired by the state of Georgia! I’ve always wondered why there haven’t been more perfumes inspired by Savannah or at least the coastline of Georgia. A few perfumes have reminded me of Savannah but there aren’t many that claim the city as their scent inspiration. Nomaterra Savannah is one of the few.
Savannah is a raspberry green tea served with fresh grapefruit.The florals mingle with citrus and tangy raspberries. It’s all rounded out by a vanilla milkiness. The dry-down is a soft floral with white musk.
Savannah is a fruity-floral that is well done. But, it’s not me. You know how you’re flipping through a fashion magazine or walk by a boutique, you see an outfit and are drawn to its colors or print, you like it but you know it’s not your style? That’s me and Savannah. It’s like a floral print sun dress that my closet-goth self would never wear but someone else would wear throughout the summer. I have a difficult history with citrus scents and green tea fragrances. They just do not smell good on me. It’s my chemistry. I could see this one doing wonderful things on my Evil Scent Twins.
Now on the topic of “Savannah” perfumes, I’m still waiting for something more mineral notes, more salt air and more moss.
Notes listed include grapefruit, raspberry, magnolia, jasmine, green tea and white musk. Launched 2013.
Give Savannah Magnolia a try if you like fruity-florals. Or if you like perfumes like Dior Addict Shine, Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh, aroma M Geisha Pink, Sarah Horowitz Perfect Nectar EDP and/or Elizabeth Arden Green Tea. I perceive Savannah as a feminine fragrance.
Projection is below average and longevity is average. I’ve reviewed the perfume oil and those usually wear closer to the skin.
Retails for $55 at NomaTerra. A candle is also available in this scent.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Fruity-floral green tea. Not for me, but for my Evil Scent Twin 😉
