BPAL: Lorelei

BPAL Description:

A tragic heroine from German lore. In despair over a faithless lover, she threw herself into the Rhine. In death, she has become a siren that haunts that river to this day, luring sailors to their doom. Neroli, sandalwood, ylang ylang.

My Notes:

Vial:  Neroli! You know, oddly enough, this smells a bit like...sushi. In a good way. By which I mean it's got that sweet aroma, underlaid with a sour tang. I am not picking up that thick, ropy, tropical scent of ylang-ylang.

Wet:  sweet-sour-floral, with traces of the sandalwood underneath. It's making me hungry.

Drydown:  the sweet and sour fade off quickly, though, leaving a bouf of ylang-ylang, but tempered by the neroli and sandalwood so it's not an assault on the nose. I still get traces of that sweet rice vinegar smell, though--I've decided that's the thing that's making my tummy go "sushi!"

Dry: This turns into a nice, light woodsy-floral, with hints of citrus and spice. And occasionally sushi. The sushi is mostly in my cleavage, where volatiles tend to linger longer than on my wrists.

Mmm. Sushi.

Not a bad scent, but not destined to be a favorite, I think.
