Happy 4th of July & A List of My Favorite American Indies
“It opens with neroli, tangerines and a subtle spicy warmth. If the opening were a color, it’d be the orange/rust shades found in a blood orange peel. It wears as a citrus-cardamom with pretty citrus blossom florals. The rose appears in the heat; yet, it isn’t “rosey”. The rose is sheer and only intensifies the citrus in the perfume.
