Eric Buterbaugh Florals
Eric Buterbaugh Florals Apollo Hyacinth is one of seven perfumes launched by a florist who caters to the stars - he is the resident florist for the Four Seasons LA. After years of working with flowers where much of the scent has been pruned out, Buterbaugh has launched a series of perfumes centered around specific flowers that smell great. He gave Firmenich free reign to create the floral series without regard to market research or cost. This is a line of very plush, luxe soliflores.
Eric Buterbaugh Florals Apollo Hyacinth is focused on the stem of the flower and not the petals and has a green lean with a touch of sweetness from the pear and a great woody underpinning. Notes of hyacinth, lily of the valley, angelica seeds, Asian pear, neroli, galbanum, oakmoss, cedarwood and Haitian vetiver. Created by perfumer Alberto Morillas.
Fragrantica: "It’s perfect. First 10 minutes smells so green and fresh (almost aggressively, as though there was a lot of lime in this) and...like a hyacinth. The dry down is mellow, soft, like when you put highly fragrant flowers in a large hallway and the scent dissipates perfectly in to every corner - not too strong, yet not weak either - you notice it when you walk in but eventually it just becomes part of the atmosphere and makes you feel happy. It loses that aggressive quality as it melts with the body chemistry and becomes a vibrant, soft, effortless hyacinth-lily fragrance. It’s really, really wonderful."
Fragrantica: "Beautiful, elegant and refined green floral fragrance. Perfect for Spring/Summer. The scent manages to remain quite nicely dry"
Fragrantica: "Beautiful!! Really green, fresh and exhilarating, with such a pretty lily-of-the-valley, and I definitely smell the stems of the flowers. It's also got lovely woodsy, musty, earthy, slightly smoky elements in the dry down. And the pear adds a beautiful sweetness."
