Collection: Lady Justice
Status: Currently still available at The Rhinestone Housewife
Purchased: 1ml decant through Ajevie's Circles
Notes: Inspired by a spunky orange tabby kitten named after Gideon v. Wainwright. Apricots, golden amber and a saucerful of cream
In the vial: Dried apricots and cream with a touch of amber. It smells exactly like an apricot flavoured cereal bar.
On my skin: The apricots become sweeter when I apply the scent. Like I've just opened a tin of them in syrup. I also get way more than a saucerful of cream! It's an evaporated milk kind of creaminess and it stays throughout wear time. The apricots are only faint during dry down and I no longer get any of the amber.
Longevity: 10 hours plus. The cream stays around forever! I've applied this a couple of times in an evening and still had traces of it left the following morning.
Summary: Creamy apricots with a smidge of amber.
Verdict: This is an extremely foodie, comforting kind of scent. I like to wear this at home where I can frequently huff my wrists and inhale all the cream! I don't think I would ever wear Gideon in public though as I'm worried it may come across as sour milk to Other People. Not full bottle worthy, but I'll happily use up my vial indoors :)
