Turquoise: (Birthstone for December) Named after that vivid blue-green stone favored as an ornament across continents throughout the ages, Turquoise is an effervescent scent that stirs the spirit with oceanic beauty. Its youthful, enlivening top note accord of blue chamomile, grapefruit, cassis and ozone elements glistens like fragrant, sun-kissed sea spray. Turquoise’s base note accord of watery, flower-infused musks melds with mysore sandalwood for a dry down of freshly subtle depth. Certain Native American tribes revere Turquoise for its healing properties, which arguably are shared by the timeless, deep blue seas of the world that also inspired this fragrance fit for a mermaid.
"I don't normally favour aquatic fragrances, but this is different. A little strong at first with the grapefruit and blackcurrant creating a fresh sea breeze, and these notes hold on for a bit. But soon, the white flowers appear with the Blue Chamomile and it becomes an almost ethereal potion with the sandalwood and musk slowly bringing out the warmth, like sunlight shimmering across the water and touching on lotus blossoms, with a hint of fresh green leaves. Not long after that, it begins to whisper to me...to come to the water. This is what a water nymph or a mermaid might smell like, or what she would wear if she wore perfume." - a review by B.D.
