Sarah Horowitz Parfums What Comes From Within: Peace

12 Mar

What comes from Within: Peace is a personal pool party in a bottle. Thank you for the lovely sample, SHP.

WCFWP starts off with soft fruit sherbet creaminess and pool-side aquatics, as well as Sunlight beating down on the cement around the pool. There is an uplifting, citrusy-brightness that lingers in the afternoon air.

My friend in high school had pool parties every Summer, and this sweet fruit with musk and citrus + aquatic notes captures those eternally happy days. Projection is good but not outrageous, as is longevity. It lasts all day and into the evening, drying down to a skin scent for the last two thirds of its life. I agree other reviewers that the aquatic musk can become a little much after you’ve been smelling it for hours on end, such that I am a little eager for it to disappear already towards the end of its extremely long life. This, however, is the fragrance’s only downside.

As it develops on my skin, I suddenly see a tremendous tray overflowing with bright watermelon wedges. On the wooden patio table surrounding the tray, are Ring Pop Candies in bright wrappers boasting two tropical flavors swirled together.

Relaxation. Peace is less a remote, tropical destination, than it is someone’s decked out backyard, where you are always welcome to sit around listening to top 40 radio with tropical Popsicle in hand.

There is an over-sized plush towel with your name on it if your lips start to turn blue, and you can even spend the night if you want to swim more the next day.

What Comes From Within: Peace is the scent of simple consolation in a world full of intense change. It’s an invitation to put everything else aside. To kick your feet up and relax in the bright, warm, afternoon light.
