EAU DE PARFUM Family: Woody aromatic Perfumer: Maria Mavromatis Year: 2018 Notes: Citrus, herbs, woods, vanilla, green notes Named after the southeastern region of the Peloponnese peninsula, a land with rugged mountains and fertile soils that give life to bountiful groves of citruses and olives, Lakonia opens with sweet citruses, we think there must be some orange, and lush, green foliage. We notice soft woods and an ocean breeze in the heart, leading to extremely subtle floral and vanillic tones. Lakonia is predominantly a sumptuously moist and earthy fragrance. It smells clean, yet its earthiness gives it a patchouli-like "dirtiness" as well. More complex than the notes reveal at a glance, Lakonia truly captures the spirit of its namesake. 100% Natural Vegan Certified cruelty-free by PETA Fragrance Quick Story This reminds me of waking up the second morning of seattle to portland bike ride. The dew the citrus gew i am stuffing while filling citrus aide in my water for the long day ahead. The grass and everything around with all the people snapping there shoes into pedals, pops of tire pumps coming off of wheels, clicks of the helmet getting on. Sitting up slowly putting my tent away as my thoughts are a little dart of why the heck am I here, why am I doing this again. Yeah this takes me to that place instantly. Fragrance in my opinion compared to Perfumes Notes Yummy smells like hard candy citrus openings. (big glass jar of candies you get from costco imported from the UK) For next fifteen minutes on my skin just fades into a citrus cologne. I start to get a leather fade into this. Heavy woods come into play with the green notes. Smell of leaves, but citrus has not left and a little sour on my skin as of now. This is one reason I prefer to do full wearing reviews. Citrus does move on and the souring was the herbs, herbs take over as the top note above some woods nothing distinct and dense green leaves. Herbs are in the form of parsley??? That’s a new one.

  1. Hi. Interesting review of my parfum! Lakonia is my most experimental and avant garde scent. You pretty much like it or hate it. The green and herb notes are coming from the petitgrain, blue cypress, and clary sage. Tonka bean is part of the base, so perhaps that is where you sense the leather. What retailer did you buy my fragrance from?

    This is my fragrance line and I am the founder and formulator. Thank you for the video. — Maria.
