Delicious vanilla and soft oriental florals,
This review is from: Scents of Time Maya Mystic scent of the Americas Eau De Parfum 50ml (Misc.)
The very initial notes are very green, slightly mossy, and the waft of incense – the copal incense and the verdant foliage coming through, along with an undercurrent of ozonic influences. Beneath that, a distinct layer of tropical flowers and night blooming jasmine. After several minutes the fragrance melts into the night blooming jasmine leading the scent, underpinned by strong currents of rich cacao beans and creamy vanilla. This delicious scent is almost good enough to eat. It isn’t terribly long-lasting, after about an hour it fades to just a lingering hint of chocolate and vanilla yumminess, but it is delightful. A scent for all seasons, and appropriate day or night, Maya feels smooth and sophisticated, but not necessarily old or young, and sensual in a soft deliciously creamy way rather than animalistic or spicy. Definitely one of my all-time favourites. It's a pity Scents of Time went out of business - I use my perfumes from them very sparingly now, lest I run out.
