The last two scents I have for you guys are Lavender Corset and Washington These were saved for last for Nadja, as they are not her thing :D The italicized scent descriptions are from Possets.
Such a pretty and old fashioned yet bleeding edge modern scent! Lavender Corset is more lilac than lavender, very feminine, long lasting and a persistent whisper of a fragrance. Like a corset it creates a perception about you but one about which others are barely conscious. It is magical, though. Perfect as a day perfume but not prim, perfect as an evening perfume but not brash. Characteristics: Lilac, musk, versatile, feminine, clean, sophisticated, long lasting, cooling, summer scent..
Lavender Corset is a very simple, yet pretty, perfume. The description is spot on, especially about the scent having lilac notes as opposed to lavender. It is the perfect lilac scent. Though lavender is renowned for its relaxation properties, I think lilac is just as calming (if not moreso). Lavender Corset is not for those who are into complex fragrances, as it's pretty one-dimensional. The lilac is the main component of this perfume at every scent stage. It is also a bit musky, though absolutely nothing like the overpowering musk in Silver Violets. The musk is very subtle and delicate, which makes it blend seamlessly with the lilac. I think this would be the perfect scent for spring or summer; but also for any hectic days where a calming scent would be beneficial. I could also see this as the perfect bedtime scent or even a linen spray :)
What do you think of when you think of Washington state? Apples, of course. But I put them with the sweet briar rose (which is actually its cousin and does grow well in Washington state), and a honey accord which is so smooth it is almost illegal. Finally I am topping this all off with an incense which weaves the entire thing together and you have what I consider an essential beautiful perfume fitting to represent a lovely place.
Cold sniff offers a very strong apple note. The Washington title paired with the apple note reminds me of the Twilight saga, haha. The honey really smoothes it out on the initial application. My hamsters would probably bite the hell out of me if they smelled this on my skin. They adore apples. I really have to concentrate to detect the rose, but I think a lot of that is due to the fact that Possets perfumes are so well blended. The incense comes out during the drydown, which is really nice. I like Washington more than I expected, it's really quite nice. :)
