REVIEW: Evening Edged in Gold

Evening Edged in Gold, having been inspired by the elegance of evening (well, and the letter "E" - more on that in a second), creates warmth in the midst of an intoxicating night flower. Basking in moonshadows, trumpets of angels greet the night ...

In 1996, she began her formal perfumery studies at ISIPCA in Versailles, France. She moved to San Francisco desiring to blend her perfume skills with her love of design, literature and the arts.
