We are a perfume snob. We do not wish to be. We simply are. When we took our first whiff of Hipnotes No. 1 Spring 2014 Peony, it was love at first sniff. It is truly divine and while it has been a great deal of time since we had the opportunity to give a peony the olfactory attention that it must deserve, if it smells as good as this, then, it's past time that we did so!
Inspiration for this heavenly essence comes from NYFW SS14, Zac Posen, Ellis Saab, Balmain and Vera Wang. The initial nose is all floral. However, it is a delightful floral and not what one would expect. The essence remains true to itself until it fades. However, it stayed with us for the duration of a day. For some reason, this has otherwise been a real challenge.
The Peony Hipnote is available as a .5 ounce spray bottle, for $25.00. It is available here.
