Testing something as bright and sunny as Phoenix Botanicals Peach Tree Garden when there is snow on the ground should feel so wrong, but it doesn’t. Peach Tree Garden is a reminder that underneath the ice, there’s life. It’s a reminder that in a few months what are now bare branches will soon be covered with pastel blossoms.
Peach Tree Garden opens with juicy citrus and a “chewy” saffron. This enhances the warmth and ripeness of peach flesh .It wears as a juicy, fresh peach and woods, like bark. In the heart, Peach Tree Garden gets denser, reminding me of dried apricots or peach fruit leather. There’s a hint of blonde tobacco that adds a hay-like warmth to the season’s harvest. The perfume dries down to like a spice peach marmalade with a nutty, warm oud and patchouli.
Peach Tree Garden is a gorgeous peach fragrance. The oud and tobacco keep the fragrance from smelling juvenile. Being a botanical perfume, it doesn’t smell synthetic or go “shampoo-ish”. I have a feeling it would wear beautifully in the heat, but right now I’m enjoying it in the winter. It’s a reminder that warmer days are ahead.
Notes listed include saffron, yuzu, bergamot, peach, osmanthus, Turkish rose, tobacco, ambrette, dark patchouli, spices, labdanum, vetiver and oud. Launched in 2015. PERFUMER – Irina Adam
Give Peach Tree Garden a try if you like peach or osmanthus scents. Or if you like perfumes like Keiko Mecheri Peau de Peche, Jo Malone London Nectarine Blossom & Honey, Artemisia Saveur de l’Abricot, Bissoumine Souffle Sauvage, Annick Goutal Le Mimosa and/or Meshaz Ozmanthus.
Being a botanical perfume, it wears closely to the skin. Longevity is average. However, it’s the base notes of patchouli and oud that linger the most. The peach fades after a couple of hours. The overall feel of the fragrance is “sheer” but it doesn’t lack depth.
Peach Tree Garden comes in a few sizes. The 5ml retails for $38 at Phoenix Botanicals. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A harvest of fresh peaches turned into dried fruits and eventually spicy marmalade. It’s an excellent peach perfume.
