Happy May Day! Magnolia The Great
Let's talk about one of the iconic flowers that evoke the month of May: Magnolia. It smells like the way it looks: creamy, velvety and exotic. It can be described as having a delicate creamy floral scent with a hint of lemon, spice, and vanilla. You can smell the lovely flowers of the Magnolia Grandiflora tree blooming from early spring through the summer. Magnolia is a flower evocative of the Asian culture and is also one of Louisiana State symbols. Creamy magnolia blooms in the crisp spring air are the fulfillment of a gardener's winter dream. The scent is released in the fresh morning air when the petals are adequately hydrated, and again in the late afternoon when direct sunlight passes away from the flowers. A quick sniff of magnolia flowers at any time is sure to reveal a pleasing fragrance; a few blooms in water perfume a room. As soon as I find myself under one of these Magnolia trees, my steps invariably slow and I dawdle a little to savor the scent. My lingering under the magnolia tree isn't entirely innocent, the fragrance is sensual and turns on my human brain!

First things first, there are four main faces in the smell of Magnolia: the green, the woody, the aroma of white flowers, and the creamy, almost milky note. Why do I like Monotheme's magnolia scent? Now I will reveal it to you. The cologne greets you with a blend that expresses its smoothness already in the top notes, where green chords cleverly intertwine with fresh citrus notes. There is a creamy, indolic, and very white floral accord. Some modest citruses keep it clean and lifted before the scent slowly advances towards the richer, warmer, and sweeter heart, although that citrus backbone does hang around; more on that later. Nevertheless, the opening is nearly full of sweet citrus accords.

After a fresh opening, it takes on an almost salty character. Flattered by a bouquet of white flowers, allegedly jasmine, the grace of Magnolia explodes in the heart, which, majestic and noble, celebrates a well-bred beauty. White flowers bring radiance and fruity smoothness to the composition.

I've been wearing this one spray for good two-three hours and have yet to arrive at the woodier and muskier drydown. The citrus is gone. Instead, along with the faint creamy and grassy vibe, I get a slight whiff of something herbaceous. It could be basil, I don't know, but it's there on my masculine skin. I love aromatic herbal notes in sweet perfumes, so this is a plus for me. I think this is a bridge to the woods. When the woody facet comes, it is all about blonde woods, a blend of almost rosewood and the smoother, more milky silkiness sandalwood. The dry down of the composition lastly seals its emotional charge, thanks to a winning combination of intense woody notes and the most refined musky touches.

Monotheme's Magnolia is a glowing art crafted from the duality amid creamy wood tones and delicate floral notes, with subtle green and white accents. It can rock about in the daytime, in a suit, at a wedding, an elegant luncheon, dinner or other events. It is sensual and dramatic without being blatantly seductive. Perfect for spring and summertime.

As a side note, Monotheme is a collection of perfumes born in Venice and based on single-theme fragrances, created by Lorenzo Vidal from precious essential oils to cover the entire perfume variety. All the scents draw their inspiration from a single prevalent raw ingredient, Magnolia, in this case, without scratchiness, chemical nastiness, or the mighty, ambroxan, iso-E super, or excessive amounts of white musk. I am shocked how much this perfume resembles Essence No 2 Gardenia from Elie Saab.
