While the winter is still in full swing and it has even snowed in London this year (shocking!), I am already looking forward the spring. One way to get in the spring mood is to wear floral perfume and today I open up my bathroom cabinet to reveal my own collection of floral scents.
L’Occitane Pivoine Flora Eau de Toilette Roll-on
Again, another L’Occitane great product that can travel with me anywhere since it’s only 10 ml. Peonia Eau de Toilette is made of peony extract from the south of France and captures the subtle aura of this beautiful flower. This luxurious portable roll-on contains a more intense version of the fragrance for fragrant touch-ups throughout the day. Other notes include bergamot, grapefruit, rose petals, sandalwood and white musk. I absolutely love how roses, peonies and freesias smell, so I am always on the look out for fragrances with these notes. They tend to be less heavy, but still are very feminine and sensual, and lovely for both day and evening wear.
Vera Wang Truly Pink Perfume
Got this one a while ago and love it so much that I only wear it on special occasions. It’s been discontinued, so it’s neither easy to find nor cheap. This lush, floral
fragrance was inspired by the grace of a single rose and includes white freesia, lychee blossom, cassis, pink lily of the valley, pink rose accord, peony, iris, and sensual woods notes.
L’Occitane Rose 4 Reines Hydrating Face Mist
After salivating over it for a couple of months, I recently got this dual pack of hydrating mist in Aeroflot Duty Free. It’s brilliant since each bottle is 50ml, so it can go into hand luggage and it’s absolute staple for air travel when facial skin gets dry and dehydrated. Enriched with natural rose floral water, the mist helps refresh skin while preserving its optimal moisture levels. It also contains relieving active ingredients that lessen irritation, leaving skin calm, soft and comfortable. Can be applied under or on top of makeup any time of day, leaving a light rose scent.
Bodyshop Atlas Mountain Rose Eau de Toilette
This fragrance I discovered by chance looking for something else in Bodyshop. “Escape to the valley of roses” invites new Atlas Mountain Rose collection. Inspired by dawn in a field of blossoming roses, this bright, dewy eau de toilette from our Scents of the World fragrance collection features a blend of floral accords. Besides rose, it features citrus, cassis buds, spices, musk and amber. Spray it on your hair or behind the ears and you will smell like blossoming rose all day long!
DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Eau de Parfum
Lastly, I like DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom perfume. Inspired by NYC’s blooming Central Park, this light-hearted and intensely feminine scent showcases a mix of luscious fruit and delectable flowers. A blend of sparkling grapefruit, cassis and sun-kissed apricot meets a heart of sheer muguet and petal rose, wrapped in luminous jasmine. The apple sensation finishes with a body-lingering base of blonde woods and smooth skin accords. Both alluring and delicious combination!
