“He did not hear Molly saying in as soft a voice as if she were talking to herself, ‘I wore mine just as they were sent,’” –Elizabeth Gaskell, Wives and Daughters
The latest perfume from Puredistance, Opardu, reminds me of wistful scenes from bygone eras. It has a delicate vintage quality. Based on carnation, Opardu also includes tuberose absolute, purple lilac, jasmine absolute, and gardenia. The carnation is just a dusting of spiciness, vaguely clove-ish, while the notes that really shine are the lilac and gardenia. The lilac is green and youthful, whereas the gardenia is smooth, elegant, and a little melancholy. It’s a beautiful, striking contrast.
The perfume was created by Annie Buzantian. For another review of Puredistance Opardu, see Eiderdown Press.
