Everybody here wants to come in sweet. But why not take our time and let love bloom? Rushing into lust feels so incomplete; Let’s balance our hearts before we resume.

Yesterday was about Vanille Intensee, so I thought it was only appropriate for me to taste Orchidee Vanille today for a side-by-side. So how was it? Well, I found Vanille Intense to be like a bottle of pure vanilla from the pantry – simple, enjoyable, great for layering. Orchidee Vanille, on the other hand, has the same burst of vanilla, but balances it out with an equal dose of floral (vanilla orchid?) which makes it smell much more like an actual perfume. While I appreciate the simplicity of Vanille Intensee, I enjoy more the full and balanced blend within Orchidee Vanille.

The complexities of a natural heart. The delicacy of delicateness. Un-bottle your love so that we can start. Do not be afraid, dear, in the slightest.
To put it simple, this is a bottle of beautiful vanilla straight from the pantry. Yesterday, I mentioned Bohemian Lime and how great it would be for layering. Well if you mix these two together – which I just did – it smells amazing! I believe Vanille Intensee already have some lime in it, so by adding layering Bohemian Lime on top, you take the lime that’s already there and INTENSIFYING it. This is actually the same concept I have for one of my fragrances – equal doses of vanilla and lime rotating around a strong heart of beautiful Jasmine. It will be amazing!
If you are a beautiful bottle of vanilla, would you keep yourself sealed tight and set away in the back of the cupboard? Or would you let yourself open up for the world to enjoy your beauty?
Poetry inspired by the perfume Bohemian Lime from Goldfield & Banks.
Your cocktail green-eyes – too warm to subdue. They lather my heart until I’m relaxed. Don’t over-power a moment with you. It doesn’t take much to rinse-off romance.
Bohemian Lime has a beautiful, juicy lime note – pinned underneath with soapy sandalwood. The main challenge with this fragrance is to create a completed fragrance that doesn’t include any ingredients that would overpower the lime – so that the lime remains the key note. Of course that means it will never be a power-house perfume, but Bohemian Lime is pleasing and relaxed for a chill day and would be great for layering into almost any “weightier” fragrance for more dynamics.
