Coral is a soft, powdery blend of souvenier Orange Blossom oil (in the little wooden orange bottles), sweet mimosa, and notes of vanilla. It is slightly creamsicle-like, but beeswaxy, too. It has the enchanting vibe of a balmy Florida afternoon. Being a Californian, I do not associate this particular orange blossom note with California. Instead it's the heavier, more nectar-like aroma of Florida orange blossoms, suspended in humid air. It's tropical, happy, and carefree. Irresistible.

Citrine is a lovely, gentle honeysuckle fragrance with hints of sweet pea on a base of mild sandalwood. It smells like flowers from nature, which is impressive and unique in current fragrance formulations. It used to be that perfume-lovers complained when notes smelled "synthetic", but, I fear we've smelled synthetics for so long, we think perfumes are supposed to smell like assembly-line manufactured goods. Citrine, like all Sage Machado oils, hearkens back to days when perfume was an art form, and we wore fragrances as marks of our individuality.

This is more of a spicy Oriental than a fruity-floral, for sure. But, just my luck, the watermelon note takes center stage. I'm not a fan of fruity, aquatic, or, especially, melon notes in my perfumes. The watermelon ruins what might be beautiful to my nose. I think the strong rose notes enhance the watermelon and blackberry notes, which makes sense...that deep juiciness. To me it's watermelony rose and patchouli. I wish my skin brought out more patchouli and some amber to dim the fruit. I don't dislike Garnet, but I wouldn't enjoy wearing it.

Turquoise is so refreshing and pure-smelling it seems to cool my body temperature. It's hard to describe: It feels sharp and cold in my nostrils, like mint, but it doesn't smell like mint. It reminds me of spring water, fresh air, and light spicy flowers. Turquoise is an outstanding fragrance for those who are uncomfortable in heat, and want to smell like a splash of icy water. Lasting power is very good.

Sage is GREEN. It doesn't smell like a perfume, it smells like fresh sage and flowers. The sage note is so true to the plant it makes my nose itch. If you ever played outside, rolling on the ground, doing cartwheels, playing kick-ball...the grassy emerald scent left on your skin and clothing is the essence of Sage. The cucumber note ruins it for me, but that's a matter of taste, not anything wrong with this masterful blend.
