Royal Lotus perfume is a 21st Century-specific design, containing only one wildcard from the 20th Century. I realized as I was making modifications on the blue and pink lotuses, that several of my aromatics had royal names associated with them, so I changed the name from Purple Lotus to Royal Lotus. It is a sweet and beguiling perfume, with a citrus cocktail opening that evolves into a slightly smoky rich and luxurious floral. The smoke dissipates, and a seamless floral extravaganza unfolds for hours. The sandalwood, tonka and ambergris base is lush and smooth, like the feel of a royal silken garment.
A slight spray of this unctuous perfume in your hair will reward you with at least 24 hours of floral and coumarinic, sandalwoody pleasure.
The notes include orange, yuzu, clementine, blue and pink lotus, queen of the night, jasmine, orange blossom, sandalwood, ambergris and tonka bean.
