Summary: It has been mentioned before but here it is once again: Half Cashmere Mist (Donna Karan) and half Nanadebary (original pink) makes for a comfort, feel-good, don't think about it too much, perfume. The Penhaligon website says there is caramel, powder, green apples, nectarines, jasmine tea, violets, cyclamen, lily petals, amber, vanilla, warm spices, and musk.
Summary: Some fragrances are so tightly woven that it is difficult for me to sense some development – let alone notice all the notes. Such is the case with Penhaligon's Artemisia. First, I do not have a precise idea about what this plant is supposed to smell like. And then the naming might lead us a bit astray since this fragrance is not really herbal. Artemisia is an oriental, not a fougère.
Summary: My review is for the powder as I am allergic to fragrances. The powder smells like the fragrance except milder. I use this daily. The ingredients are fine for my sensitiveness except for linalool which is an irritant but my body is less allergic than my face. So my armpits do not swell up :) I really like Penhaligon's fragrances. Very subtle and regal. Not in your face. Androgynous and suitable for summer.
Summary: This is the most feminine fragrance to me. I am normally an all out in your face bold oriental style girl. But, the femininity of this one bowled me over. It is a lovely ballerina in a soft veil of pastel florals. It is just beautiful and I had to have it just because of all the girliness it evokes. For those days when I am feeling contentedly feminine.
Summary: Wow, this scent is strangely addicting. I bought it decant a few days ago, put it on, and soon forgot about it. But, as the day wore on, I kept smelling tiny whiffs of something very pleasant. My first impression was that it was totally forgettable, but somehow, i keep coming back to it. And this is probably the tenth time I have put it on since I got it.
Summary: This is a nice pretty 'safe' floral, it is not ground breaking in any way but is a fragrance that you could easily wear every day and not annoy people. The dry down is quite sweet and creamy, the SA was also wearing this perfume and on her I could detect a a slight citrus note but sadly on me this was not present. Is it bottle worthy, for me personally I don't think it is, as I have many florals that I would choose over this one.
Summary: Fresh fruit and flowers softened by velvety vanilla/okamos/musk base. Feels somehow like perfumed milk, but better than that sounds. Lovely for a while, but ends as basically a clean musk not unlike Avon Soft Musk, which costs way less. So I like it a lot, but won't be buying it.
Summary: If I was a new mother, Artemisia would be my go-to fragrance; it is that soft and lovely in its drydown on me. When I dab just a tiny amount on my wrists, it’s a very soft spoken, milky skinscent with just a little bit of sweetness from the fruit and a lightness from clean flowers. Unfortunately, it becomes almost impossible to notice in a matter of minutes. I quite like Artemisia's nectarine when I can smell it, but it’s not very easily noticeable on my skin.
Summary: I love this fragrance. I`ve been wearing it for a long time now and I agree, it also reminds me of fall, this is where I reach to it most often. I can smell the lily, amber and vanilla most but it also has a fruity aspect. When my best friend was pregnant this was the only fragrance she could tolerate on me. In my opinion this has a way too girly bottle because the scent is not girly at all. It is very soft, understanding and just... adagio in music..
