Veering a tinge more masculine than its woodsy soulmate, last summer’s delicious, oaky Bourbon, Amethyst is dominated by on-trend tobacco. But instead of going for the smoky, pipe bowl aroma of the dried leaf that the perfume’s name might suggest, Nirvana Amethyst opts for blond tobacco, smudgy and drowsy, like summer-dried hay. It is a perfect counterbalance for the heady honeysuckle that quickly emerges.
