Perfume blog with abbreviated perfume reviews & fragrance reviews.



VohinaWHAT I SMELL:  Vohina opens as a rich, smooth honey laden floral.  It’s warm and slightly “bathtastic” as it feels like it’s suited for bath oil beads rather than perfume.  I think I am smelling the lavender at the base, but it’s very muted which is nice as lavender can often times dominate a fragrance.  As the fragrance develops the honey becomes deeper and the fragrance warms and it loses the bath oil characteristics.  Around the 30 minute mark a woodiness comes out that seems to dry the fragrance without losing the lovely florals. After another twenty minutes or so, the honey get’s a bit sharper and that creates an almost hairspray kind of edge to the fragrance, but it doesn’t detract from the overall fragrance. I find Vohina to be very soothing, peaceful and relaxing and a fragrance that could easily take the tension out of the day.

From the Huitieme Art Parfums website:

A sunny afternoon in the fields, velvety and floral with peach tree blossom and lavender honey resting on golden hay.

BOTTOM LINE:  This was my first foray into Huitieme Arts and it was a pleasant surprise.  Vohina is not earth shattering, but you don’t always need an earth shattering fragrance.  To me, it’s perfect for just knocking around on a spring or summer day.

  1. Sounds nice for spring & summer. I don’t much like the bottle though…
