The opening of Wisteria is centered on carnation with green-citrus notes: crunchy, crisp, fresh, with a sort of abstract and “contemporary” feel of cleanness. Accords of spices, aldehydes, red pepper provide a sort of nostalgic, slightly retro feel, but “deprived” of the thickness and deepness of vintage perfumes. Shortly a sort of hologram of a traditional green-floral-spicy scent. I also get a subtle white-rose floral breeze which is really thin but palpable, soapy and crystalline, which gives Wisteria a touch of gentle colour, also softening a somehow quite “angular” blend. On the very base, dusty white-greyish notes of musks. Overall Wisteria is a modern, sharp, clean perfume, rather pleasant and unexpectedly powerful despite its “thin” texture. It’s much linear too, though, so it can be a bit boring after a while. Also not the most original or creative scent around, but more complex and fascinating than it may seem, mostly because it is basically a synthetic scent with a sort of dreamy, “glowing” feel of organic earthiness perfectly blended with a luminous, icy feel of abstractness. A bit like watching a digital rework of a faded polaroid picture (or listening to a glo-fi band, if you know the genre: that “synthetic nostalgia” type of inspiration). Didn’t make me fall of the chair, but nice!
