OroNardo by Xinú

WHAT I SMELL:  OroNardo’s opening is heavenly with creamy buttery lightly spiced tuberose that sparkles and buzzes with just the lightest of earthiness brushed with orange blossom.  The warmed perfume wafts and dances like sun-kissed florals in the Mexican summer breeze.  A greenish stem comes forward taking the perfume from the garden to the most luscious of bouquets.  This is tuberose that’s not heavy nor overbearing, but tuberose that’s fresh and lightly dewy and which is very much alive.  As the perfume continues to develop, the florals become lighter and rise into a heavenly aura.  Here the perfume resides in a true essence of floral harmony wrapped up in the lightest of powder.  Breathtaking.
