Tokyo Milk Mix and Match: Garden State No. 100/Scent #2
Please note the "Interesting Fact" posted just below the picture of the perfume vial (above). Hopefully I won't confuse you as I try to explain further...
102 White Sage & Lemongrass is actually one parfum that comes in a set with two other fragrances called "Mix and Match Eau de Parfum". Each parfum in the set is meant to be a building block accord of just 2 notes which you can layer -“Mix and Match”- in any combination with the others to create a unique fragrance. There are 4 possible combinations but you can, of course, tweak the ratio of various elements to personalize the scent. The parfums come in spray vials for easy layering.
102 White Sage & Lemongrass is part of the Mix and Match Set called Garden State No. 100 which contains:
101 Patchouli & Tundra Moss, a kickin' strong, straight up patchouli.
102 White Sage & Lemongrass, an herbal, slightly chemical lemon.
103 Turned Earth and Cedar, a pungent, earthy cedar compost.
Individually the component fragrances are pretty heady (they are listed as “eau de parfum”) and I don’t think most people would wear them solo.
My favorite combination is to layer on 102 lemon & 103 cedar. That combination creates a credible fragrance that has a unique character and depth I'd prefer to many designer label fragrances. I found that the patchouli in 101 Patchouli & Tundra Moss is fairly overwhelming so it may require a 2 to 1 application of one of the other parfums to balance.
I hope you understand why I have posted the same review 3 separate times. The idea behind this product is a bit unusual for the Parfumo review format.
This strikes me as a nice, inexpensive and fun fragrance gift ($18) that might actually be used and appreciated since the receiver is not stuck with a single fragrance they may not like.
