Then, narrowing down a Brooklyn-wedding-day perfume for Texan-family-favorite Ashley Echols (value contemplating since olfactory experiences are saved as long-term recollections, y’all), I dropped the Liis discovery set right into a dozen-ish choices from totally different manufacturers. Sans steering, Ashley picked my best choice, Rose Struck, for her ‘refined, particular’ celebratory scent.
