Sappho is one of five perfumes which are only sold at the Florence, Italy Perfume Library store. But Lush Uk has them temporarily on their retail site uk.lush.com
I happened to be on the site looking at the mothets day producys and saw them there!
I wanted to like Sappho so much. I bought it because the ingredients vanilla, jasmine, sandalwood, tonka, orris, tobacco and anise seemed perfect.

Especially when the description said this:
You’ll love this if you like:
– Powdery vanilla scents.
– Vanillary perfume.
– Sunny sapphic sensuality on a Greek island.
But when i spray it on, it smells great for a minute then these note come through thats like licorice, jaine and tobacco and this overrides the lovely vanilla quality.
If the licorice-y note wasnt there it would be so good, but unfortunately it burns my nose, just turns strange and is way too strong with my body chemistry. The part thats left over loooonngg after its dried down hours later is aactually kind of nice
actually kind of nicely soft and vanilla like, but it takes literally hours to become this nice scent. I think Lush shpuld take the anise out of it.
“Fell in love with a girl?
Bittersweet and inescapable, this ode to a striking poetess, the Tenth Muse, will shake your senses. Classical orris entwines with carnal jasmine to enchant deep desires.”
