HERETIC FLORGASM Fragrance Review

Lately we’ve been on a fragrance journey, with particular affection to the more transient nature of real botanical perfumes made from a higher-concentration of plants. Sometimes deemed by traditional perfumers as incapable of delivering that encapsulating full-bodied, long wear fragrance experience, we’d implore you to venture into this growing territory of new natural perfumes that replace heady cloaking with a subdued, personal experience.

Enter Heretic Florgasm, from the natural fragrance brand that brought us a candle that smells like Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina. Florgasm is a dream for floral lovers, described as

“Bright, seductive Jasmine flirts with Bergamot, a tingle of Pink Pepper, and a burst of Orange Blossom, in this 100% natural floral fragrance that stimulates creativity and passion.” 

Heretic

Florgasm’s breakdown of notes seemingly taps every beautiful scent note in existence: bergamot? Check. Bitter Orange? Check. Jasmine? You bet. Orange Blossom, Tuberose, Ylang-Ylang, all here.

TOP: Bergamot, Bitter Orange, Coriander, Lemon, Pimento Berry, Pink Pepper 
HEART: Jasmine, Linden Blossom, Orange Blossom, Tuberose, Ylang-Ylang
BASE: Hibiscus Seed

Wearing FLORGASM feels like an explosion of flowers, a decadent floral feast of the freshest, juiciest, rarest nectars, while the dry down develops into a creamy tuberose-dominant dream. What this lacks in synthetic longevity and sillage, it makes up for in that immediate burst of immaculate aroma, made all the more exceptional in that the juice comes from actual flowers rather than a lab. As synthetic-free scents are known to do, FLORGASM is neither cloying, nor overly sweet, it lingers luxuriously, then dissipates, almost like a nostalgic fever dream until you top off again, which we recommend.

If ever there was an argument to be made for personal perfumes, Heretic FLORGASM would be it, a discreet, intimate fragrance whose bottle you’ll want to keep with you and spray throughout the day with abandon.
