Spoiler alert: I have smelt every fragrance which perfumer Maria McElroy of aroma M has ever released, and this is by far my favorite. I can’t be bought, sold, coerced, cajoled, and I’m not remunerated for my work – as is the case with all writers here at ÇaFleureBon. If I tell you that Maria McElroy sent me a ‘little something to sniff’ last month and that I immediately fell into olfactory paroxysms, it must be Love. Not conditional affection – the sort where something is fascinating, creative or novel but you wouldn’t end up wearing it very often. Her new perfume oil and eau de parfum aroma M Geisha Botan by Maria McElroy (Japanese for peony) are so beautiful that they make you ache: this is Wearable Olfactory Art. First sniff of reveals aroma M Geisha Botan by Maria McElroy is voluptuous Moroccan rose (from Maria’s recent visits there) and buttery sandalwood flanked by a pair of cordon bleu vanilla sentinels. I feel peony implied, because scent profiles tend to overlap (rose is likely the more complex, with hundreds of components). You want to immerse yourself in it – meditative, soothing, healing-through-beauty. We have a draw for a sample each of aroma M Geisha Botan by Maria McElroy (oil and EDP) for one registered reader in the USA. The random winner is helenlam.
