I became drawn to the blend of white florals in Lys 41 - a blend of jasmine, tuberose + lily - which I was surprised with since overly floral or decadent parfums are the ones which bother me. [To be clear, my throat doesn't close up bc of allergies, just leftover PTSD from relatives that would bathe in bottles of disgustingly strong perfumes + then hug young children, leaving you in a blanket of scented filth.]
Then, I watched as Marcus did something I've never seen before: he created a fresh batch to be bottled right before my eyes. This is the attention to detail that the brand is known for - fresh scents blended with respect, and personalized labeling to remember the date it was created + the magician that poured the potion. While I did this for myself first, I went back a few weeks later to create a personalized scent for my mom for the holidays which she loved.
The interesting thing that happened immediately were my colleagues asking me what I was wearing. Apparently, this scent was mixing wonderfully with the Neutrogena Sesame Body Oil that I slather on in the colder months [night + day difference, ladies], creating an even more personalized scent. [I honestly get more comments on the days when I'm wearing both than the days I forgot the oil].
Note: if the price gives you sticker shock, they offer 0.5 oz sampling for $6 each if you want to test them before you fully commit.
