“I can’t over-emphasize how important an exquisite perfume is, to be wrapped and cradled in an enchanting scent upon your skin is a magic all on its own! The love affair created by a good perfume between you and other people, you and nature, you and yourself, you and your memories and anticipations and hopes and dreams; it is all too beautiful a thing!” ― C. JoyBell C.
We don’t often think about perfume the way described here, but, for me, it’s an instant pick me up. I don’t have a ‘signature’ fragrence, and I go through phases of fluctuating between florals to something musky – sometimes in a single day. The perfume I wear depends on my outfit, the weather, the occasion, and most importantly – my mood!! I wear it whenever I remember, sometimes first thing in the morning & last thing at night, & several times in between. I absolutely LOVE perfume. I always throw a bottle in my bag as I’m leaving the house.
Yesterday, at lunch, I discovered I had two (not a rare thing for me to find multiple bottles that have cumulated in my bag over few days). My girlfriend tried them and wants this one (below), so this blog is dedicated to my beautiful friend, KP, who brings joy to me every time we meet, much like this perfume.
Featured Fragrance: L’Occitane’s Néroli & Orchidée Eau de Toilette
Its sent is subtle, long lasting, sweet and fresh, and it totally draws you in. Try it out. If you like Citrus blossoms (who doesn’t?!!) or Néroli, you’ll love this!! Néroli is an essential oil is produced from the blossom of the bitter-orange tree.
Description: A tantalizing and lovely fragrance, Néroli & Orchidée Eau de Toilette blends the scents of two precious white flowers in a beautiful harmony. A heart of radiant neroli essence from the Mediterranean is blended with caressing white orchid absolute from Madagascar. Fruity bursts of orange and heart notes of peach complete the sensuous bouquet, which lingers delicately on the body throughout the day.
A special mention to my girlfriend who introduced me to SO much I’m grateful for, including this perfume, …someone who is love personified, who’s beauty is breathtaking, and who’s heart is bigger than the universe can hold – Anu, I love you.
