Wow, I’m testing a sample of the newly released Ubar and this is quite a fragrance. I love the strong and lasting rose heart note in it, grounded by a base that offers soft woods, ambery warmth, animalic depth, and creamy lactonic notes with a smidge of vanilla. I even like the prominent lily of the valley note, which often can put me off. The aldehydes add sophistication, as do the high quality ingredients. There’s some jasmine it it too, but the rose is more dominant. It’s a classical, elegant, very floral scent that some will find too strong, but it’s beautiful if you apply it carefully and enjoy this type of fragrance. Thank you to a sweet swapper for the sample.
I don’t have time to blend right now but am trying to test sniff a new scent now and then while I’m doing other things. This one caught my attention.
I forgot to say yesterday that while my cart is down you can still get samples of quite a few Sonoma Scent Studio scents from The Perfumed Court and at The Posh Peasant (they have slightly different selections).
