Wellspring

The essences and description of a new perfume release: An explosion of bright bubbly flowers, with honey notes, in a gentle bed of light woods, and the spicy sensual scent of lotus. And that’s just at the start. This is a romantic scent with great longevity settling into a rich amber. A warm, sweet scent reminiscent of youth yet sophisticated.

Longevity

Fragrance becomes subtle and soft at the 8-10-hour mark.

0-10 minutes:

Starts at the bottom of a barrel. Sour and sweet grapes, white cognac dance together. It is floral and fruity, and sour, and sweet. Spicy and warm. Beyond the wine, there is a hint of lotus and lily, and a delicate caress of warm ginger.

10-20 minutes:

Warming up to a bottle of sweet white grape champagne.

20-40 minutes:

The florals develop, becoming soft, peppery and warm.

Final Thoughts:

This fragrance lasts 8-10 hours, with the spicy floral notes taking shape later and staying true. This is a meditative scent, based on ancient Egyptian formulas, one used for spiritual refreshment.
