|10 mL Eau de Parfum of Joan|
This is Sweet Anthem Joan. It smells like honeycomb, and I am enamored. It has notes of "beeswax, coriander, peony, tomato leaf, white mint" (from the website) and the description declares, "You won't hate yourself for loving this one - bright green top notes of tomato leaf, coriander, and mint are paired with soft pink peonies and a blushing beeswax."
Fret not, Sweet Anthem is still vegan; I'm not sure what kind of magical ingredient creates such an authentic beeswax scent, but it is indeed magical. I have the eau de parfum, so the experience is slightly different than that of a perfume oil. I spritz, and instantly I smell like the magic honey fairy. It's a cheerful yet romantic scent, if that makes any sense at all. Very feminine, very delicate, like the intricate shell and webbing of honeycomb, dripping with pale, golden honey. There is a hint of greenery, a floral breath, and the finish is undeniably beeswax, but never cloying or powdery. Reminds me of something like this.
You might think that this isn't winter appropriate, but I think it's perfect - the sweetness makes it comforting and close, and between this and Lucille, I've been spoiled for light, breathy, honey-esque scents. This one's permanent and available at Sweet Anthem. I'm also eager to try Edith - Meredith's Wintertiming 2012 beeswax feature.
