This perfume sample was sent from Aroma M for an honest review.
Giesha Vanilla Hinoki is the newest addition to Aroma M's evocative Geisha line. Featuring notes of: Moroccan vanilla, hinoki (or cypress), bergamot, clove, cardamom, nutmeg, cedarleaf, lavender, leather, patchouli, amyris and cedarwood.
Wild sweet oranges and tea from the orient, softly spiced and infused with flavor of vanilla bean pods. The sweet come hither nuances peel off to reveal a heart of lavender, medicine for the soul, accompanied by greenery from the cedar and cypress intertwining. Spiced oranges with age and vanilla velvet never disappear but continue to weave through the tale until the leather and woods appear. The orange strays but vanilla stays, lingering with the patchouli and earth base.
A beautifully rendered vanilla centric fragrance that speaks more of the woods and spice east origin than a sugared version from the west. Sophisticated, exotic and sensual. A spray parfum is $90 and the oil roll-on is $60. Do you enjoy vanilla fragrances? What types of vanillas do you adore?
