Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Tristan and Yseult. His name should be Tristram though which is the old English/original name for Sir Tristram of Lyoness from L'Mort d'Arthur.The Celtic Trilogy Series arrived yesterday evening and I have decided to try Lyonesse first out of the three. For long time admirers of Teone's work you would be aware all three of these perfumes Lyonesse, Tristan & Yseult have had a prior history and then vaulted for quite some time. What wonderful news for Teone to reintroduce these scents so newer fans of her work like myself only a few years in could discover past compositions and perhaps get a glimpse of early underpinnings of her future endeavors. Her poetry and prose in the introduction of this series had me hook line and sinker as if she cast a spell on me to experience her views of Celtic Britons of a time long ago.
Lyonesse is so perfect for this time of year with the Cypress and Juniper taking the lead role and perhaps never leaving during the four hours I have now been enjoying it's interaction. Cambodian Oud gives the composition the necessary body along with cedarwood and Amber(amberette). This is a unique and quieter venture than say Black Spruce and The Path but share similar vibes. This like I said is less robust than the latter compositions that most are now familiar with but this doesn't mean it is transparent. I get young misty fields of dancing pixes and faires delicate in it's delivery but oh so enjoyable. Perfect too in a office environment to keep a smile on your face while not imposing its will on others. For the fans of Black Spruce and The Path which i am you have basically a forest environment perhaps in a Nordic Zone whereas this is more temperate perhaps young wet virgin grasslands in a marine climate starting to take root into a more complex environment.
For me two thumbs up and I can't wait to try the other two in this series.
Shout out to Teone she sent a free Mogra which I already have but love dearly. So exemplary customer service as always.
