Retro-Lush
Sappho is definitely very retro. The opening is clean, powdery jasmine, but it fades into the background after half an hour. If Lush Lust is dirty, lively Jasmine, this is the polar opposite (which doesn't have to be bad, I usually find Lust too much) - dry, very respectable, clean.

After that the fragrance is dominated by tonka and tobacco and becomes very heavy and sweetish. Sappho is still not smoky, on the contrary, and the sweetness is definitely not gourmet, but sometimes even reminds me of washing powder.
The sandalwood shimmers through every now and then, then again the jasmine powder, but both cannot get past tonka and tobacco. So the scent lasts for several hours, in this time it also has a very neat sillage (and since I am used to lush scents, I only sprayed once). It has hints of Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanilla, but at most as a light inspiration - Sappho is also much more powdery and heavy and contains hardly any vanilla.

In the end, Sappho gets smaller, he melts into a classic "generic lush after-scent", in which he smells what lush scents sometimes do, simply like a store mix, but very close to the skin. In this form you can still smell it the next day, but you can't be sure if it's really the perfume, or maybe a Lush soap or body lotion.

All in all it is a very nice, heavy scent, definitely something for the winter. I also find it rather feminine, but that's probably my bias as well - there will definitely be men who can wear it. I would advise everyone to try it, although I find it very difficult to test lush scents in the store, because the whole store smells so strong.
