About a year ago, I read THIS article by Monica Skye Miller about a perfume she had made for Nina Simone, and that her Fuzzy Blue Blanket is similar to that scent.
Of course I had to order a sample as I adore Nina Simone. On her Perfume Pharmer blog Monica Skye Miller details the notes of this wonderful elixir as follows: "top notes - Martha’s Vineyard Linden Blossoms, Blue Chamomile, White Roses: heart notes -Coffee Flowers, Musk Roses, Rhododendron; base notes-Antique Musk Tincture, Ambergris, Costa Rican Jungle Grown Biodynamic Vanilla, Iris Root, Violet Leaves."
To me, it is not a summer scent - it's perfect for this rainy spring we have been having for months. The beautiful way the florals interact with the heavier scents of coffee, vanilla and musk have a magical way of keeping this from being too heavy. On initial sniff, FBB made me think of " head-shop ", but on my skin, the florals lift it up to being much much more.
Today, I brought a sample to my friend Shelle - in the course of transferring, I spilled most of my larger sample - now I must purchase a bottle! In the meantime, my bedroom smells fantastic!
Has anyone else tried this?!
