Freesia - Le Cruex es Faies
This is sparkling fresh with delicious green sap and the distinctive Freesia notes of Violet, Lily and Neroli with a hint of Champaca. It dries down gradually, deepening into orris root, without changing the Freesia scent.
(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.)Named after the entrance to fairyland in Guernsey. Freesia is one of the 'mute' flowers, that doesn't give up an oil.
Eau de Parfum 50ml (also available as 30ml)
This Eau de Parfum is at 35% concentration, almost twice the percentage of many commercial scents. This option has the best silage of all (it travels furthest from your body) and has good longevity. There are no harsh, chemical notes and it dies away softly and gradually over 4-5 hours.
Pure Parfum ( 10ml or 15ml): The strongest dilution, but actually sits closer to the skin, with less silage than the options with more alcohol, but will last longer.
Cologne: 50ml - please see listing
