Garnet: (Birthstone for January) A fragrance that is as deeply sensual as the smoldering red hue of the stone for which it was named, Garnet melds with and transforms the wearer’s body heat in an enigmatic alchemy. This tribute to the stone of love begins with a luscious and seductive watermelon top note. Garnet’s full, inviting middle note accord of gardenia and Moroccan red rose absolute languidly lies on a sumptuous bed for amber, vanilla and must that both radiates and beckons.
Garnet is a rose/patchouli/amber blend with faint fruity overtones. This is a rose for people who hate rose and a patchouli for people who hate patchouli. It's so seamlessly blended that it smells like neither. This is definitely a "vintage"-smelling scent and it transports me back in time to another era, when the world was more magical and superstitious. And glamorous. Garnet is sexy and mysterious, like something you would find in a French bordello in the 1920s. Nothing headshoppy about this at all, it is classy and sexy. Worth every penny, I will buy it over and over." - a review by P.
