OK, OK, so the inspiration of Blackbird Ophir is a fictional trade planet and some pulp paperback storylines. I’m fine with all of that. I’m not here to debate what I think a fictional trade planet should smell like, but I’ll say this. This fictional trade planet smells a lot like what is in this Seattle-based brand’s backyard.
ROSE WEEK 2017 – A Tea Rose Soliflore
