Paradise Lost

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.
