Eau de Parfum
Maria McElroy - Aroma M
Maria: Vanilla scents tend to have a cloying, candied effect. But not Vanilla Hinoki. Its key ingredient is a woodsy, smoky vanilla found only in Morocco.
As for the other ingredients: They kick off with light and sparkling bergamot combined with spicy, wake-up clove, cardamom, and nutmeg. These segue into more soothing mid-notes: cedarleaf, soft bergamot, and lavender. And finally the lingering drydown: exotic, animalic leather; incense-like patchouli; tropical, evergreen amyris; and cleansing, invigorating cedarwood.
Dave: Sacred wood - lemony and camphorous, on a soft bed of herbal, dry vanilla. A hot spring in cool mountain air. Uplifting and invigorating.
Geisha Vanilla Hinoki Notes: Bergamot, hinoki, lavender, leather, patchouli, amyris and cedar.
