Kitty2Shoes's Review of Inflorescence by Byredo

There must be a note in Inflorescence that my nose just cannot pick up. The first hour of so of wearing this I didn't smell a thing. Frustrated I applied a bit more, shrugged my shoulder and went about my day. Some time later I started to get hits of Magnolia and Lily of the Valley. And then I started to smell like a Downy April Fresh scent dryer sheet.

Eventually this did morph into bits of other florals and in the end it wasn't terrible, but there are better lighter and fresh florals out there, especially in the Guerlain Aqua Allegoria range and Jo Malone. I went with neutral rather than thumbs down sheerly because I must be nose blind to the top note.
