Hummingbirds Perfume Oil
Hummingbirds Perfume Oil
Aroma Palette is a fruity, slightly floral gourmand. Highlights include blooming tuberose, burnt caramel drizzled bananas, grapefruit and orange bursts, toasted cardamom, and carnival winds.
This enchanting blend will lead you down a path to a magical garden at dusk filled with rich summer fruits and haunting florals. Here, hummingbirds float above the most fragrant night-blooming tuberose as the faint nostalgic scents of a distant carnival periodically make their way into the garden. This blend opens with bananas ensconced in burnt caramel, grapefruit, and juicy oranges set against a backdrop of fragrant billowing tuberose. A touch of cardamom and a hint of carnival winds add nostalgic mystery to this blend, which settles down to a soft tuberose kissed with fruit phantoms.
If you're looking for a tropical diversion from the ubiquitous coconut suntan lotion and aquatic scents that dominate summertime offerings, look no further than Hummingbirds. I chose this as a freebie with an order last year when free samples were still a thing, and I found myself revisiting it time after time. I honestly wasn't sure about the notes because banana is not a scent I gravitate towards and white florals can be hit or miss on my skin. I do, however, adore cardamom in any form so it was nice to get a sample without having to risk a blind buy. Black Baccara is one of my favorite houses, but it's also the one I have the most trouble predicting how scents will react with my skin chemistry. I have often been disappointed with scents I considered surefire winners- but I've also been blown away by scents I would have never risked buying without sampling first. This is one of the latter.
If you love cardamom, this is the signature warm weather scent you've been looking for. The banana is unmistakably banana, but it is not that fake candy banana, even though this is very much a floral gourmand. It's truly the caramel that sweetens the whole deal. The tuberose adds the most elegant floral touch and does not overwhelm the other notes and there's not a whiff of indole on me. The citrus adds to that nice tropical vibe but I would not say this is "citrus forward". The banana and tuberose are more strong in the beginning but meld pretty quickly on dry down and, like all well blended scents, the notes work together to become something more magical that transcends the individual notes. Another masterpiece. Highest recommendations.
This was one of three perfume oils I recently purchased for the first time. I’m hooked! Upon smelling the oil in the bottle, the citrus is bright and rejuvenating while a beautiful, soft haunting floral sneaks up in the background. On my body, the citrus calms a bit, the floral pushes to the foreground, and the caramel banana makes an appearance. I’m in love and I can’t stop taking whiffs of my wrist!
This is just a truly unique and beautiful fragrance. I would have never imagined tuberose and banana together but they are something special here. The “carnival winds” note is what really amazed me. It’s there in the background, sort of like funnel cakes or churros ever so slightly coming through. Everything from this house is so unique and magic.
I’ve been exploring indie perfume for over a year now and finally decided to try BB. Tuberose, banana, and cardamom are 3 of my favorite notes so I HAD to try this. It is gorgeous! Starts off with a banana & cardamom combo, then the tuberose comes in and steals the show. Dry down is mostly tuberose with the warmth of cardamom, & the generally fruitiness of the banana and orange notes!
This is it. This is THE ONE. Oh my word it is intoxicating and pulls you in, deeply enmeshing you in heady aromas. Who knew cardamom and caramelized bananas could transport you to ancient lands full of mystery and intrigue? Mixed with tuberose and delicate floral scents, I’m so glad I took a chance on this one. It was not at all what I expected. Pure love.
