Forbidden Love by La Fleur By Livvy

This Eau De Parfum is an Oriental floral fragrance for women with hints of White Lotus, Lily Absolute and Orange. This is created by the natural perfume creator Olivia Larson, and is 100% Natural and Vegan.

The scent is inspired by the Japanese Geisha tradition.  A young Japanese man in Kyoto is in love with a Geisha. “I see her silhouette as she gracefully floats in Zori. Her obi tied in a simple knot. The nape of her neck is exposed as she turns around the corner at the street lamp. She has no idea that I wait for her passing each night on her way back from the tea house. Her kimono smells of a rich scent; a combination of orange blossoms, vanilla and lilies laced with tobacco. The Cypress trees and full moon heighten my senses. At that very moment, a gentle waft of burning incense catches my breath from temples nearby. I am in love with her but she can never love me back for it is forbidden to love.”
