Extrait de Songe
I must admit that I tend to overlook L'Artisan fragrances and don't try them often enough. After hearing raves about Extrait de Songe I was reluctant to cave in trying it but once Meg started raving about it I knew I had to try it.
The notes in Extrait de Songe according to Beautycafe are:
Top: Mint Leaves, Rose Essence
Middle: Orange Flower Water, Lime Tree, Green Hay
Base: Botany, White Wood, White Musks
I don't get any mint in here which I was thankful for and I've read notes of orange blossom in this fragrance but I don't smell orange blossom either. There is just a hint of rose. This fragrance is incredibly subtle with soft lime. I can swear I smell a hint of milk in here. The primary note on me is hay, think POTL but light, really light and a tiny bit of wood and musk. If you don't like hay in fragrances, odds are you won't like this one.
I never took much notice to how much I love the scent of hay but I adore it! Somehow, this fragrance reminds me of freshly washed clothes left outside to dry in the summer sun. Such a beautiful fragrance which is clearly meant to be worn during warmer months, but I think it's beautiful enough to spray year round. Without a doubt one that can be carried through from dawn to dusk. Ah, to the top of the wishlist this goes!
