In Honor of Spring, A Draw

Noticing the unseasonal weather across the United States, with five inches of snow in the Pacific Northwest to eighty degree weather in the Midwest, I am certain most of us may have missed the first day of Spring - officially Tuesday, March 20th.  It also happened to be my baby boy's 19 month birthday.  My, how time flies!

In honor of this flourishing and prospering season and all of the beautiful fragrances matching it, I am offering another draw from my collection.  This time, it involves a mystery.  The featured fragrance comes from an understated yet stylish and timeless house.  The juice is most suited for Spring, inspired by a country garden, but can be worn year round and layered.  The notes range from floral to stimulating and I find it delectable.  To demonstrate its softness, I will also share that it was one of the few fragrances from my collection I could tolerate during pregnancy. 

Please enter by commenting below.  I will send a generous decant to those who can identify the house and the fragrance.  In the absence of a winner meeting that criteria, I will conduct a random draw.  Winner announced Monday along with a review of the chosen fragrance!

Edited to add: I will offer the following hints since I realize I am being very cryptic here!  First, the house hails from England.  Second, the fragrance features a white flower native to tropical and subtropical climates.  I hope this helps!

I wanted to go with Gendarme Sky since you raved about it during your pregnancy, however, it doesn't quite fit the rest of the criteria. So possibly, Montale Fruits of the Musk. Thank you for the draw! LeanS12(at)gmail(dot)com

I have no idea which house is understated but when I read your description first thing that comes to me my end are perfume of Elisabeth Taylor. Don't know why. :D
Anyway, thanks for the draw!

I'm sorry to say, I have no idea what house or fragrance this may be
Should be very gentle, though
Please, enter me the draw if it gets to the random phase, thanks

happy 19 months birthdayto your son and happy spring to all

Gendarme Sky is so soft and fresh, it definitely fits the bill for pregnancy safe. However, the one I am thinking of is much more floral! Thank you for entering.

I have loved a few EA scents, including Green Tea and Red Door.

Thank you for your lovely comment! I realize I have not given enough hints on this one!

I will give this another shot: Could it possibly be, Phul-Nana from Grossmith?

I am enjoying this blog very much! Thank you!
