Today I'm reviewing my two newest scents from LuckyScent. I was fortunate enough to get to preview them when I went to the Scent Bar in LA. Both are created by Michele Bergman who also created Black Gardenia. Both in darling glass bottles with ornate caps. They also come with cute black logo travel pouches.
The first fragrance is Black Amber:
Notes are: Dark and light Tunisian amber, vanilla, hint of patchouli
Black Amber is not necessarily black and dark and deep as expected. It is a nice medium amber finding its way somewhere between the medicinal and the powdery. Tempered with a touch of vanilla and a hint of patchouli, this is a very nice amber to add to any amber lover's collection.
The second fragrance is Black Lotus:
Notes are: Lotus, sweet floral notes, soft musk
Black Lotus is really a misnomer in this case. In fact, Mandy Aftel and Michele Bergman should have worked out a switch. Mandy's Pink Lotus is so dark and deep and heavy. While this version called Black Lotus, is light and sweet and well ... pink. Opening with a fruity sweetness calling to mind candy apples, it soon calms into a soft sweet floral on a base of light musk. Very sexy, clean and nice for those of you that prefer a slightly sweet skin scent. Although I love the amber, I think I'm partial to the soft sweetness of this one.
