Bond no.9- Chinatown
Proud, perfect plum blossom perky and prim,
glows with oriental spices;
cardomom anchors the sultry cloud
as it hovers in the trees.

Red; the color of happiness,
luck and all good life forces,
rushes forth as it fills my heart.
The rich scent is redolent;
representative of an ancient civilization
with an elegant, noble tradition.

A bird's song trills while the gentle,
tangy notes accumulate.
Peaceful and luminous,
pink light quavers.

notes include- plum blossom, peach blossom, bergamot, peony, gardenia, tuberose, orange blossom, patchouli, cardamom, vanilla, cedar, guaiac wood, sandalwood.

Although the chief note given is listed as peach blossom, I keep getting plum blossom. I recently compared this to Tom Ford- Plum Japonais ​and the similarities were striking.

Loved this, especially - "The rich scent is redolent;
representative of an ancient civilization
with an elegant, noble tradition. "
Inspired me to order a sample to try it out!
