Magnolias are back in town. Their bare branches adorned with buds and incredibly huge flowers that resemble celestial lotus.
Their scent is exotic and intoxicating. And of course there is a huge variety between colours and particular genus. Pink, purple, white... Some are more tea-like, others exotic and spicy, redolent of ripe fruit. Others are ethereal, citrusy or oily-aldehydic.
Each smells different. I've written much about magnolias in the past, so this is just a tease and an invitation for you to revisit the article from 2013 titled Magnificent Magnolia, and enjoy perfumes with this note this spring.
