Night Flight to Venus by Living Libations

La Plume

After reading The Hermes Hippie’s truly epic review of Living Libations’ tantalizing offerings, there was no way I was going to resist making a haul of my own. I am still in the process of testing several of their products, but it has only taken me a few weeks to fall deeply in love with their utterly swoon-worthy perfume, Night Flight to Venus.
