Wings of Spring
"The fragrance starts with green, a bit resinous notes, with fresh sweet spice (anise, coriander?) and cool aquatic and flowery notes like delicate smell of wet water lily. Polyfonic green chord in the start, colorful but not sharp. Fresh airy and woody tail with fruity notes appears at once (it seems to have synthetic origins). The fragrance gets warmer, suddenly transforms in gourmet with prevailing notes of milky fig, slight trace of cedar nuts, sweet creamy coconut and some exotic flowers. And then unexpectedly appears salt. This phase lasts for some hours. Green notes of the start become softer, they don't disappear but interlace and play with contrasted warm notes of creamy and flowery heart and fresh ozone and woody notes of the tail for all the time. The fragrance fades away gently in calm and soft milky and woody base.
Is it a reference to the wet rainforest? Remembering the theme of the festival, I imagine the jungle in spring after heavy rain full of thick spicy green leaves, creamy vanilla orchids, magnolias, water lilies (or whatever is floating in the ponds there, distant relatives of our Russian water lilies). And startling clear air with salty breeze from the ocean.
Wonderful, very beautiful fragrance, skilfully made. The composition is balanced, perfect and full of harmony. Vivid and bright, transparent, not annoying. Long, unpredictable and interesting revealing. Wonderful piece of work. I would gladly come back to it".
"Spring forest before blooming. Only wet soil, last year grass, wet trees and the smell of awakening, vital juices starting to brew in roots and branches. Strange but close to me in associative sense. I want this one".
"Bright and sunny start. But we are enjoying the sun for a short period of time, then experiments in physics begin. Dandelions and coltsfeet are blended together with roots and this smoothie is tarn, bitter green. In the background I hear the wet soil and water. The fragrance smells louder, colder".

Spring. Bright sunny day, it is warm.
Bright sun rays. A fountain in the small garden. The water flows with splashing fans into big shallow bowl. Its bottom is decorated with mosaic of chipped tile – waves and algae like curls. Sun flares. Streams of water sparkle with golden and multicolored flurries. The water is cool. Flowers, many bright spring flowers filling the air with their smells.
The melodic and monotone sound of water is relaxing. It is rhytmic. Birds sing, trees whisper in the wind. I listen to this music with eyes closed. Warm sun caress is like mother's gentle hand touching my head in childhood when I was going to sleep. The sounds get quieter and the space fills with soft pearly pink light. Soft warmness, silence…
Fresh, bright and light fragrance, opens up in time actively. Colletive image of spring flowers. I thank the Author for this fragrance".
"Interesting fragrance, it is like the white poplar bud before it opens. I like such ones. It is definitely made by a professional. The tail has become synthetic a bit, but upper and heart notes are excellent".
"More than 10 hours have assed since I've put this fragrance on elbow bend, and still I hear its trace – bitter creamy white gardenia and slight hint of mushrooms. I'm surprised".
