One thing I can say with confidence is that nobody does incense quite like Auphorie. Every perfume from this house that I have sampled features incense in one form or another, and it is always a superior quality of incense than in any other perfume I can think of.
Please dont cringe at what I am about to say, but do you remember Sunflowers from the early 90's? I still love that stuff, and it was all the rage with 11-year-olds in my day. Elfen Spring is like the most beautiful version of Sunflowers imaginable. It's like Sunflowers with fresh gardenia and a deeper base of ambered musk. The scent drifts up to my nose for several hours. No problems with sillage nor longevity from two sprays to the wrists.
Elfen Spring is totally different from any of their other perfumes. It has more of a perfumey feel versus a dark, unisex, modern, no-top-notes type of perfume. It smells very high quality and very elegant.
I would also put Elfen Spring into the same category as Dia Woman because they are both floral, fruity, musky and feminine. So if you like fruity-floral, clean, and musky, please give Elfen Spring a shot. I want a full bottle pretty badly...and Heaven knows I will get one eventually!
Bottles ($99 for a 50-ml EDP) as well as samples are available at Auphorie's website.
