[Review] Poesie Perfume - Arctic Monkeys


Collection: Playlist Collection Summer 2015
Status: Available
Purchased: 2ml Bottle via Ajevie's Circles Group Order

Notes: Barely there, light violet floats over a blend of ripe unctuous banana and sweet warm amber, transforming what you think you know into something quite unique. Soft as the fur of a golden capuchin monkey, and wild as the beat of his heart. Perfect for lazing in the jungle, concrete or otherwise. Notes: creamy ripe banana, sweet amber, ethereal violet.

In the bottle: Violet and just-ripe bananas. It's floral and fruity in equal measures.

On my skin: This goes slightly herbal on me when first applied, but then the banana becomes a lot stronger. I get a touch of amber while wet, which is all warm and not too overpowering. As the scent dries everything becomes a lot creamier and I find myself catching wafts of that sweet amber throughout wear. If I close my eyes, I can imagine myself sunbathing in a garden full of beautiful flowers, whilst sipping a banana milkshake. This is such a lovely scent.

Throw: High
Longevity: 3-4 hours.

Summary: Very true to description. Violet, bananas and sweet warm amber throughout, becoming creamier as it wears.

Verdict: I really like this. I'm waffling on whether or not to buy a full size, but as it feels like more of a summer scent (well, it was part of a collection released during Summer), I think I'll probably hold off for the time being.
