A Rave Review!

I'm so thrilled to share this lovely review from Trish at Scent Hive for my Garden Walk perfume.  Trish has been kind and generous with her words and I'm thrilled to bits.

Garden Walk #1 is a perfume commissioned by Jessica Warren from Brownstone Brooklyn Garden District.  The fragrance was inspired by the flowers in the group's 13th Annual Garden Walk. The tour included 15 private gardens as well as several vibrant community gardens in the historical district of Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. 

Earthy notes such as orris root, ambrette and hay represent the fertile soil of these gardens, floral middle notes such as tuberose and neroli round it out and it ends with top notes of petitgrain and elemi. Even the bees are represented in this formula with the addition of honey absolute.

The perfume is $45 for 20 ml, or a sample vial for $3, and can be purchased on my website at or my Etsy store.


  1. Just tried this beauty. It's a gorgeous earthy floral — mostly petals, but there's a fleeting, distinct dirt/stem note. The top florals have a spicy element, a bit like a carnation, accompanied by voluptuous garden flowers. Nothing sneezy or sharp here.

    In the dry down: maybe it's the tuberose, maybe the orris, but it smells like buttery, muted floral, like a gardenia (sans indolic headiness).

    There's also a whisp of spun sugar about an hour along.

  2. Thank you so much for your kind words and beautiful description! It's so appreciated.
