This time of year I start to crave spring, and that usually manifests itself by me craving, purchasing and wearing cool, fresh, sunny and yummy breezy perfumes, and turning my back more and more on the Oriental bombs and the smokey silage beasts. "The Vert L'Occitane en Provence" is just my cup of tea for the last days of January and it will be a favorite far into the spring and summer months!
Cool green freshness, citric zest, floral feminine beauty and herbal depth without that it is too much of one thing. It's a very elegant and yummy scent with an herbal dry-down, reminiscent of standing in the middle of an herbal garden in the Provence looking for just the right herbs to go with your dinner that is cooking on your Aga. Whilst you can smell the freshly pressed orange & lemon juice still on your fingers. On the way to the herbal garden you stopped and picked a jasmine or two out of the big terra-cotta flowerpots. Lost in thought you inhale deeply...and you can feel your lungs fill with a clean spring-air that already holds a promise of a summer that will be reminiscent of holidays with family & friends and lots of laughter. (Darn! This potion makes me lyrical!! lol ; )
A beautiful mood-lifter that is suitable for all occasions and moods since it's not the type of Green Tea scent that smells like you're wearing your morning tea. It's too well blended for that. Tea notes swirling around juicy citric vibes that have a strong jasmines note and a very well adjusted mate vibe. It's herbal without being 'medicinal', tea & orangey-like without being 'food-like' and has a wonderful balance of mate and jasmine.
It's addictive, I am wearing it often: (at home, work, leisure-time and on casual dates) and I must get another bottle to have it on stand-by for when the first spring-like days arrive!
Silage is: Yummy and pretty aromatherapy for body & mind -- Longevity is: depending on chemistry and amount of sprays. On me three sprays on skin and one on clothes make it last 5+ hours. Good luck and enjoy! : )
