Lime blossom dream
Q... how did this happen?!!! I never thought I would... But I'm in love :) In the lime blossom.

This fragrance has converted me and such an effect on me that I would give all my fragrances for this.

Yet it is only a very gentle, dimmed, almost fleeting green breath, which I absolutely want to capture.

It is like a feeling of spring, a tingling sensation in your stomach full of excited anticipation, like the hope that everything will be all right and that all worries will vanish.

I am transferred to nature, on a day between spring and summer, and I smell the green leaves of the trees and the lime blossoms. Not honeyed, but clean, slightly flowery and penetratingly fresh. It is like breaking a lime branch and tasting the blossom and the juice of the branch.

I hardly take fruity nuances, only at the beginning the slightly waxy, bitter taste of the Neroli and in the course a very discreet, barely perceptible, herbaceous note. These ingredients form the link with the original fragrance "Eau d'Orange Verte". A light wood tone is added to the base, which combines wonderfully with the others to create a very natural, relaxed, green natural tone.

Therefore it is especially suitable for leisure time, but also for all other occasions, as it will not disturb anyone. Ideal in spring and summer.

And it's refreshing! Like a sudden blast of air that blows through you once and leaves you happy and smiling.

Sweet by no means, as the name - sweet orange water - suggests.

On my skin I perceive it for about 5 hours, whereby it is very close from the beginning.

I don't know who created this fragrance, maybe already Jean-Claude Ellena, who joined Hermes at that time - there's nothing about it on the internet - but he should urgently get another order to revive this fragrance!

I am in love... and have surrendered :)
