|Korres Black Sugar Oriental Lilly Violet Eau de Toilette|
Modern Greek Apothecary, Korres, came out with some lovely natural fragrances to tempt us with like this darkly luscious fragrance that arrived for this review. Imagine the sweetness of a gourmand and the haunting notes of a woody-floral in perfect harmony is how I would describe their new Black Sugar Oriental Lilly Violet Eau de Toilette.
This fragrance opens deliciously with its sweetness. Yet, it is not overdone but more of a sprinkling of sugar to coat the lily, which adds a delectable quality to balance the floral along with a splash of inviting vanilla.
The further this fragrance warms in the heart, the violet majestically emerges lending a mysterious allure with its woody quality. In the process, the fragrance evolves to become more complicated from those woods that seem to gently toast the sugar.
As this natural fragrance dries down in the base, the smoky sugar has caramelized against the floral and amber, making it even more scrumptious and irresistible at the same time. The result is a scent that you just want to wrap yourself and snuggle against with its genuine warmth and earthy appeal.
Every time that I wear Black Sugar Oriental Lilly Violet Eau de Toilette ($38.50) it feels like I am treating myself to a nonfattening dessert. If you want a fragrance to indulge in, then do visit Korres and check this delightful new fragrance!
