Mardi Gras

(1 customer review)




Every year in late winter New Orleans puts on a grand party like no other. It’s a rainbow-hued, glittering, skanky, riotous, celebration of everything there is to celebrate, flowing in and out like a shiny snake amidst the flower-strewn, humidity-drenched, decaying streets of the French Quarter. Mardi Gras may present a polite, rich veneer of real orange blossom and vanilla, like a southern belle delicately munching on a beignet dusted with powdered sugar, but behind the pretty, festive costume are dark undercurrents of voodoo and hoodoo, midnight rituals and outrageous secrets that can only be unleashed under the protective camouflage of the innocent-looking mask. Released 2015. Notes: Orange blossom, neroli, cistus, benzoin, vanilla, civet, special musk blend.

    This was my choice for my first full size Olympic Orchids perfume, and I am so happy with it. New Orleans is my favorite US city, it’s where we went in our honeymoon ❤️. This to me smells like night blooming white flowers and something sugary, but that could just be me as I tend to turn things sweet. After a few hours I get something rich and almost amber, a sort of sweet Smokey resin. Thank you so much for this lovely blend, I can see myself wearing this all spring and summer. There is something so special and beautiful about these perfumes. They are completely unique so I recommend sampling, that’s how I am finding all of my loves.
