I love the roll-on concept of this product, which creates a localised opportunity for the scent. I also love that it is made with ‘intent’ and reminds me to create intentions for the day. Conscious intent and community importance resonates with my set values.
The scent of this is super long wearing! It doesn’t last an hour and rub off on your clothing and dissipate into nothing – it stays all day long. I love that Melis work hard to ensure their products are ethically sourced and are superior-grade. This is super important because us as Australians need to support local businesses more than ever and it’s great to see that they source all of their packaging and ingredients from other local businesses.
An ultra-premium release displayed in an equally presentable bottle, I found the Motus No.7 to be the first of the products reviewed to truly capture the upmarket socially-conscious consumer. I really enjoyed the application process and the woody notes of this release, in particular, the subtle use of sandalwood.
My husband is a big fan of this one and I love it on him, too. I think it’s very masculine with musk and woody notes. He’s so relieved to have found a Natural Cologne that gets a big thumbs up from both of us!
Rejoice: both my husband and I love this scent! He’s a big fan of “the sweet aroma”, and says “this scent suits me:”. He also loves the roll-on glass bottle; “it means you don’t waste anything”.
