Today is a very special day! I had no idea there was such a day but I am so excited to celebrate. Saturday, March 21, 2015 is National Fragrance Day. This unofficial holiday celebrates the great fragrances of the world. When I was asked to share beautiful fragrances from around the world, I quickly accepted.
I love fragrance. I have a nice collection and I admire each and every one. I love the shapes of the bottles as they are all unique and have special meaning to the people behind the products. I chose three fragrances to feature! I chose them based on curiosity, the celebrities behind the fragrance and the commercials I have seen. Either way, I am so thrilled to share them with you!
I received Lancome La Vie est Belle Eau de Parfum. I knew immediately that I wanted to try La Vie est Belle from the commercials as it features Julia Roberts! The fragrance smells luxurious. It is rich in scent, long lasting and warms to my skin to where it becomes a part of my mood. I find the scent to be uplifting and bold. It even smells expensive! I rarely get to try expensive perfumes, but I know them when I smell them! They have different layers of scent.
Lancome La Vie est Belle Eau de Parfum is described as:
The fragrance that makes life more beautiful. La Vie est Belle introduces the first ever iris gourmand. The juice is made with the most precious natural ingredients, a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance with a gist of gourmand. It entwines the elegance of iris with the strength of Patchouli and the sweetness of a gourmand blend; for an incredible scent with depth and complexity.
I was unsure of what to expect from Le Couvent des Minimes Eau Aimable- Botanical Cologne of Love. I love the vintage look of the box and label on the bottle. The scent reminds me of being back in time to my childhood. It is a little sweet smelling and reminds me of happy times. It is unique and I can see myself wearing it any day or any occasion.
Botanical Cologne of Love is described as:
Treat those dear to your heart to an exquisite fragrance experience with Eau Aimable, the Botanical Cologne of Love, from Le Couvent des Minimes. Sparkling and delicious, this floral-fruity blend combines sweet orange blossom, citrus fruits and five beneficial plants to evoke sweet memories. The scent transports you to a springtime stroll through Mediterranean orange trees and conjures the fresh, juicy scent of summer fruits.
I chose to receive Outspoken Fresh by Fergie Eau de Parfum Spray because of the celebrity behind the fragrance. When I saw Fergie’s name on this perfume, I knew I wanted to try it. Fergie is a woman to look up to, she is unique and a mother. I love that she has her own style and a force of nature. Outspoken Fresh is mysterious and exotic. There are pops of unique scents every time I smell the perfume. I can see myself wearing Outspoken Fresh on any given day. I feel sassy when I wear it.
Exotic, bold and voluptuous like Fergie, the woman behind this fragrance, the intoxicating scent opens with a blend of sparkling citrus notes and crisp orange flower, enlivened with lush lychee-rose and vibrant blackcurrant flowers to transport you to a lush, exotic escape. Warm vetiver brings depth and sensuality to the fragrance as precious white iris and creamy sandalwood add an addictive, lasting signature.
