Seatonica's Perfume Reviews
Hyacinths, raindrops, earth
For me, the trajectory of Neil Morris' Rainflower progresses from the opening green sharpness of hyacinth through damp earth to musky pink flower, which may be the lilac and/or tulip. In its evocation of spring Morris' creation reminds me of Issey Miyake's Florale but is more full-bodied by comparison, the latter staying thin, sharp and watery on my skin - a fragrance for waifs not women of the pre-raphaelite kind such as my good self! Rainflower is the assertiveness of the season rather than its transience: hyacinths boldly pushing through humus, bedecked by raindrops and making heady the air. Can you tell that I love it?
