Product Review: Sweet Anthem Perfume - Lucille Perfume Oil

Check out my previous post on Sweet Anthem here!

The second perfume oil I tried out from Sweet Anthem was Lucille. Here is the description from their website:

"From an old Germanic ballad: The linden-maiden rests beneath an illuminated grove / night-blooming jasmine fastened in her hair / Surrounded by the memory of ash and smoke and trove, the linden-worm takes flight / off they climb together, through the salty air...Notes: Amber, Jasmine, Linden Blossom, Rosewood, Sea Salt, Tonka Bean."
When I first put this on, I was hit by how sweet and almost fruity it was -- which is strange, considering there is no fruit in this scent. The jasmine and linden blossom really stand out, making for a heady, youthful floral bouquet. I noticed that the amber and rosewood took a back seat on this one, and I barely got any hint of sea salt or tonka bean at all. However, considering that linden blossom is one of my most favorite scents, I didn't really mind.

 As I mentioned before, the first fragrances I noticed were sweet and fruity. Very uplifting and bubbly. I would definitely say that this is the free-spirited little sister to the previous perfume oil I tried, Rebecca. As the day wore on, I did notice that the scent faded quite a bit, but that's to be expected, I guess. After a few hours, I could pick out the musky amber and rosewood over the sweet florals. However, by the end of the day I couldn't smell anything at all on my skin. Alas! It was lovely while it lasted.
