Bath & Body Works Black AmethystThursday, August 21, 2008
I've made no secret of my love of all fragrances that involve Bergamot. I like it as a top note, as a middle note, and I like it to be mixed with almost anything. B&BW new Black Amethyst is now one of my favorite Bergamot scents. Really. Bath & Body Works.
I feel like I have encountered this scent somewhere before, though it may just be that the prominent mixture of bergamot and patchouli that I smell is fairly common. Even after the burn off those are definitely the most prominent notes on me. The Middle White Floral Notes then come out a bit more, especially the Gardenia and Freesia.
Top Notes: Bergamot Italian, Juicy Mandarin, Sparkling Tangerine, Zesty Orange, Waterfruits, Crisp Melon
Middle Notes: Lily of the Valley, Magnolia Blossom, Sheer Gardenia, Tuberose, Freesia, Peony Petals, Camellia
Base Notes: Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Vanilla, Musk
I think that overall this is a very classic fragrance, I'm hoping that B&BW keeps this one around for a long time!
Just one word of warning- it is definitely strong! One spritz will go a long way. This is the one you walk through the mist rather than just spray everywhere when you first try it out.
