Solstice Scents First Flush
Farmhouse in Spring is Solstice Scent's first in their seasonal farmhouse series. It captures a humid riot of early to late Spring southern florals. Bright daffodils, narcotic citrus blossom (kumquat and orange), lush jasmine and delicate lemony magnolia paired with osmanthus flowers with their fruity scent reminiscent of apricots. This perfume is sunny and warm with a slight fruity nectar and captures a variety of flowers floating on the breeze. Sun-warmed earth and the gentle, slightly sweet and woody aroma of cypress woodsmoke from the burn pile of a neighboring tree farm weaves through the base. The light sticky resinous component of the woodsmoke has a hint of warmed golden raisins. This gorgeous fragrance contains a wide variety of rare and precious floral essences that impart a beautiful, natural and complex realism to the dynamic floral medley. Farmhouse in Spring features notes of daffodil, jasmine, citrus blossom, osmanthus, magnolia, cypress woodsmoke and sun-warmed earth. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
SOLSTICE SCENTS FARMHOUSE IN SPRING REVIEWS
Reddit: Farmhouse is a completely different animal. Holy shit, I did not expect this, I'm not sure if I like it or hate it, but it definitely is interesting. To me, this is like the farm version of Gulf Breeze or Sea of Gray, as in, it might be a little too on the nose for some. When I first applied it, I got strong, somewhat "old fashioned" floral soap, then BAM...barnyard. Not like freshly tilled garden soil, I mean the whole farm, horses, cows, theirs smells and all. Credit where credit is due, this is 100% making me think of a farmhouse in spring. The longer it wears though, the "horse manure" aspect mellows out and I get the raisin from the description, but to me is smells like very aged barn wood. It's a very distinct smell of its own, with an only slightly fecal earthiness and a dry, nearly spicy, sweetness. The floral elements have almost completely died down at this point and it's almost a sweet, cozy, resinous, dusty smell, but not at ALL like incense or traditional perfume. It reminds me of some patchouli notes which are described as "chewy" "sticky" or resembling raisins or tobacco with that dank earthiness, but none of that distinct patch-pong, if that makes ANY sense. This goes from soap florals to field of flowers near a horse barn to aged barn wood. After leaving it alone (not constantly sniffing) for a little while, I am still getting some florals in Farmhouse, but they're indistinct and just lighten the scent. The sweet, raisiny quality is still very much there but it gets less and less barnyard as it wears.
