This rosy fragrance is inspired by a fictional character named Vespertina. The heart of the perfume features a rich floral triad spun of luxurious rose, jasmine and lotus gently reclining on a thicket of ancient resinous wood. The affect is an intricate seduction. Images of a golden Byzantine crown come to mind with the rubies, emeralds and opals replaced by precious essences from Arabian deserts and the lush forests of middle earth. This is a concept perfume, weaving in the different elements surrounding the heroine of the story.

Four grams, by liquid weight, of Vespertina Eau de Parfum are contained in the dainty spray atomizer. This is a true nature fragrance in a base of organic grain alcohol. The bottle is packaged within a pillow box including informational cards. One gram is equivalent to .036 ounces. I use grams because they convey an accurate measurement. The glass bottle is 1.5 inches tall with the cap on.
Here is an excerpt of a review by Beth at Perfume Smellin' Things:
"As with all perfumes made by the divine Ms. Villa, this making of this fragrance harms none yet has bewitched almost everyone that I’ve let close enough to enjoy it. Vespertina has a quiet energy , created in the monastic image of the heroine who has inspired it, yet is a very seductive fragrance that is completely full of all of the forbidden nuances and subtle inuendos that can’t help but inspire a deep hunger filed with equal parts desire and passion. Wear it at your own risk and enjoy the results. If falling that deeply in love with yourself isn’t worth it, nothing is..........."
