Roxana Illuminated Perfumes Fleurish is a natural perfume dedicated to night-blooming white flowers. Why go looking for inspiration when nature gives us something as lovely as jasmine?
Fleurish (isn’t that name great?) opens as a collision of white florals. It’s like a minty jasmine, banana-y ylang and juicy jackfruit. It’s a heady tropical floral that really does flourish on the skin. It starts to wear like pineapples and indolic jasmine with a hint of green. With wear, the full-bodied jasmine fades into a dry, bitter sandalwood with dry resins. There’s a trace of honeyed jasmine petals and a certain “lived in” accord that I’m guessing is costus.
Fleurish is a simple fragrance, but that’s the point. It’s showcasing the natural beauty of night-blooming florals. I highly recommend sampling it if you haven’t ever sniffed natural jasmine (and white floral) notes in perfumery before. To me, this fragrance reminds me of dusk on a tropical beach – the smell of white florals, dry woods and slightly dirty skin/hair.
Notes listed include three types of jasmine, Mysore sandalwood and precious woods.
Give Fleurish a try if you like natural white florals or jasmine. Or perfumes like April Aromatics Tempted Muse, HEELEY Bubblegum Chic, Aftelier Palimpsest, Honore de Pres Vamp a NY and/or April Aromatics Nectar of Love.
Projection and longevity are average. In comparison to the parfums and solids, this EDP most definitely projects more.
The .036 oz spray retails for $52 at Roxana Illuminated Perfumes. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A flourishing white floral. It’s a good natural jasmine perfume, but it’s also a great reference for anyone wanting to experience natural white florals.
