A HoneyComb and Lemon Fairytale
Cut a thick wedge of lemon rind, pith and flesh, drop it into your good quality black Ceylon tea. Now take a chunk of sticky waxy honey comb from the container, hold this up to your nose, smell the waxy hexagonal nooks and crannies with a touch of powdery pollen. Now nibble a bit on the wax, extracting the floral fructose with a touch of the green herbal clovers and orange blossoms they dined on the make this liquid gold syrup. Toss it in the tea cup now and swirl, inhale as the wax melts and the lemon rind releases not a sour, but a smooth citron oil note. Smell the almost musky sweet vanilla note and the volatile tannins from the tea steeping. Stick your finger (or a clean knife if you've got OCD) in the jar of apricot jam and spread it on a tiny sugar coated Russian tea cake while you wait for the tea to cool. Taste the rich tangy over the top sweetness of the jam. Sip the tea. Now cover yourself with tiny sparkles and float off into the forest to play with the other mythical fairies...you've just experienced Miel & Citron with Shimmering effects.

Seriously, though this not only makes skin appear luminous, it smells quite alluring in warm weather and Sherapop is quite correct, I timed it and it took my local Yellow-jacket wasp infestation about 45 seconds to send out a hunting party after me. It's quite Yummy!

Beware of Wasps!
I wouldn't want to be wearing L'Occitane MIEL & CITRON PAILLETEE SHIMMERING anywhere near a swarm of wasps, but this stuff smells lovely. It's all about honey with a touch of lemon. Although I've tried a number of perfumes with honey as a minor note, this is the first fragrance which features honey as the centerpiece.

This composition seems to me more aromatherapeutic than perfume-y, but it smells scrumptious, and I also love the shimmer imparted by the tiny pieces of mica suspended in the liquid, which would look beautiful on bare shoulders under the hot sun. But, again, I'd be careful not to wear this honey-rich elixir in the great outdoors. This is basically the last thing to pack for your African adventure!

Although I have not tried the original, I like this simple presentation of lemony honeycomb--in a honeycomb-textured bottle--quite a lot. Very natural and precisely as sweet as honey! MIEL & CITRON would mix very well with all sorts of oriental perfumes, especially in cases where one wishes to amp up golden honey notes that seem too subtle.
