"my absolute favourite, develops on the skin amazingly and i can still smell it after hours" - claireHW

"Just lovely. Top notes of neroli and jasmine which hang around for the whole experience as the oudh and sandalwood come through. The ginger gives it a zing. I've worn it today on a rare heatwave summer day here in UK and it was beautiful in the burning sun." - tamsingregory7

"Smokey lemon, sweet neroli with a hint of sage and luxury - I'm in HEAVEN!" - theonelilium.dk

How to use:

At the heart of this evocative perfume sits deeply warming oudh and basey sandalwood, giving a rich spicy note. Spritz yourself and as it settles on the skin, light and zesty lemongrass is released and violet-esque orris oil is liberated from the blend. Inspired by resilience and emancipation, this fragrance weaves a thousand tales.
