An Exotic Name, But An All Too Familiar Smell...
Blue Lotus opens with a dash of moderately sweet, fruity amyris and a touch of smooth vanilla before quickly transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart an initially smooth before turning moderately powdery yellow floral ylang-ylang emerges as the star with remnants of the fruity amyris and vanilla now in support, with hints of underlying creamy sandalwood rising from the base. During the late dry-down the perfume turns relatively dry and mildly powdery as the vanilla remains, now as the focal note through the finish eschewing its sweetness, with the sandalwood turning relatively stark as it joins as co-star. Projection is below average and longevity average at around 7 hours on skin.

I had heard so many good things about Blue Lotus going into this review that I strongly considered blind buying a hard to find bottle when it finally showed as again available... I am now glad I resisted the temptation as Blue Lotus really isn't anywhere near as impressive as its reputation, at least not to the nose of this writer. Oh it smells pleasant enough, and I confess I have no idea as to what a Blue Lotus flower should smell like, but if this is a good representation, it smells like ylang-ylang with a bit of sandalwood and vanilla mixed in for good measure. There really isn't anything wrong with that per se, but with an exotic flower name like Blue Lotus, one can't help but feel a bit let-down from the anti-climatic mundane development encountered on skin while wearing the stuff. The powder is also a bit problematic to someone like me who is powder averse. It never crosses the line of tolerance, but comes darn near-close. The bottom line is the $165 per 30ml EdP bottle Blue Lotus smells pretty good but unimpressive coming from such a talented perfumer with its exotic name, earning it an "above average" to "good" 2.5 to 3 stars out of 5 rating and a neutral recommendation to most except powdery vanilla and ylang-ylang lovers.
