The first time I saw Paradise Lost (Keiko Mecheri 2011) on Instagram a few years ago I was instantly curious to try it. I knew I would find it fascintating. I do.
It’s a passionate but discrete fragrance. The wild florals are kept under a well sealed veneer of citrus and elegant sandalwood. You can smell them and they move you…but not too much.
Actually, to my nose, Paradise Lost is a little buttery too. But buttery in the way L’Heure Bleue is buttery. Really, in other words, it’s a very nice fragrance. It’s warm and cool all at once and perfect for anyone who likes it.
Top notes: bergamot and lime. Middle notes: jasmine and tuberose. Base notes: bourbon vanilla, musk, sandalwood.
