Freesia- Eau de Parfum
Sparkling fresh, this opens with the distinctive freesia notes of violet and lily. As these develop, a hint of champaca, hyacinth and neroli deepen the heart notes. A rich, green violet leaf and pink pepper help lift the delicious green sap that keeps freesias from becoming overblown or too sweet. The heart notes stay prominent for longer than most scents and the dry-down is more a softening of this; whilst orris and the continuing violet leaf add depth to the light floral quality.
(Each colour contains different volatile notes: the gold and white have more violet, the russet is peppery and the pinks contain soft citrus). The flowers also smell different when growing and cut - possibly why it's a rare flower to find bottled, but worth the effort.)
Longevity: 6-8 hours
Sillage: medium - less than arm's length
Pure Parfum/Extrait: 10ml, 30ml and 50ml
This dilution lasts longest but, as there is less alcohol, the scent is less volatile and so sits closer to the skin - it is more intense. Also recommended for sensitive skin which can be irritated by a more dilute scent with a large alcohol content.
Eau de Parfum: 10ml, 30ml and 50ml
All sizes are boxed.
