Summary: Ah, Poeme... Mimosa, narcissus and a voluptuous bouquet of flowers in all their glory. Very deep and voluptuous. It's not daring but quite an old romantic at heart and positively womanly. Seriously, there are a million notes in there: blackcurrant, Himalayan poppy, plum, green notes, mandarin orange, narcissus, bergamot, peach, datura on top. Mimosa, leather, orange blossom, freesia, jasmine, heliotrope, ylang ylang, vanilla, rose, tuberose in the middle.
Summary: It's springtime and I am at my mother's. She has been cutting flowers from her garden and they have been in a closed up room overnight. I walk in the next morning. The air is dripping, cloyed, thick with the smell of her cut daffodils, freesias, more daffodils, narcissus, jasmine, hyacinth, flowering cherry, honeysuckle from the fence. A few green sprays and blossom from the mandarine tree or orange or lemon tree.
Summary: I finally bought it, lured by beautiful advertisements. It has a vintage feel because it smells full and rich, like a classy old lady. A golden honey scent with a little of linden, and after that very little change, it just stays on and does not turn nasty. It seems to be meant for special occasions and should be sprayed with a light hand. Most suitable for Fall and Winter - to go with heavier fashions - then it makes sense. The longevity is incredible.
Summary: What to say about this perfume? I smelled it on a friend and was blown away, it was amazing. Then I tried it on and...I don't know. It's a very familiar scent to me that I am not crazy about but the drydown....maybe the best I've ever smelled...ever! Kind of like smokey rich honey, just breathtakingly beautiful. Will I ever buy this perfume?
Summary: As autumn draws closer, I find myself craving Poeme. I first smelled Poeme ten years ago when as a young woman I was working in the clothing section of a department store at the mall. My coworker and I would sneak off and go sniff the fragrances. My everyday fragrance at the time was Clinique Happy, but when I sniffed the sprayer of the tester bottle of Poeme, I nearly fell over. I found it so incredibly unique, melancholy, and mysterious.
