CaFleureBon Reviews ZELDA
“When I learned that Shelley Waddington of En Voyage Perfumes was creating a scent based on the life of Zelda Fitzgerald, I was anxious to try it, as Ms. Waddington is an accomplished perfumer.
“I was instantly surrounded by a cloud of rich, honeyed blossoms. The big waxy blooms of magnolia represent Zelda’s wild Southern Belle roots and the woman F. Scott Fitzgerald fell for. Throughout the life of the perfume is that full, plush scent to make us think of a lively, brilliant woman.
“The drydown has a wonderfully smoky quality that speaks of the shocking notion of ladies smoking cigarettes; of glittering debauchery, the scent of skin after a night of play, and, at its darkest depths, of a life lost to madness. The fragrance has a vintage feel, but thanks in part to the spunky top notes, also has a complexity that brings it to the modern age.”
