Lavender & Honey (one more time)
Ann Taylor is similar to Victoria's Secret in that perfume is not really their thing, but they dabble in it as a sort of hobby, producing fragrances as accessories of sorts. Because each of these companies has a reputation at stake, they do offer decent-quality olfactory wares which tend however to have a very short production life. With CHIC, Ann Taylor appears to have decided to recycle an idea that apparently did not go over well as a body products line, with the hope that a new bottle and a higher concentration might fare better.

Although for a minute or so CHIC seems as though it might be a fruity floral frag, once things settle down it becomes clear that honey and lavender are the real take-away, just as they were in the purple-colored HONEY LAVENDER body mist, of which I happen to possess what is likely one of the few bottles still in existence. I say this because I tend to nab the perfumic products of such "houses" as they are on the way off the shelves and out the door forever, at deep discount, more out of curiosity than anything else. Sometimes I end up a tad sad that they have been discontinued.

Not so, in the case of the honey lavender body mist, which never really sat well with me. I like honey and I like lavender, but I do find lavender a difficult note in perfumes. For some reason I nearly always feel that it doesn't quite fit--rather like the leopard spots on this new bottle: no connection whatsoever to the fragrance inside (n.b. formerly touted as a "soothing" and "uplifting" scent). CHIC is a fine, friendly ("soothing" and "uplifting"!) honey lavender, but nothing that I expect to last on the shelves much longer than the other launches of what used to be my favorite online clothing emporium (now under new/mismanagement).
