(lyrics The Go Go's)
MAC's Asphalt Flower is a fragrance from the Trend 2009 collection. I believe this is a reissue from a previous collection. It is a dirty violet with ylang and buttery iris petals. The drydown is a powdery cloud of incense, patch and vanilla. The scent comes in a whippet slender bottle with a roller ball applicator.
Violet fragrances are usually ladylike and slightly prim. MAC managed to twist the violet into something quite wicked. Cavewoman from Makeupalley stated that it had a very downtown vibe. That description nailed it. It is a modern libertine, rakish fragrance.
I might be far from being a libertine due to age and opportunity.
But I want to be bad.
It retails for $20 and it is currently at your local MAC counter.
