I am a fragrance freak! I love perfumes and colognes so much that the entire top of my dresser is covered in them. I have a tendency to purchase a ton for my husband as well. The sense of smell is magical. It can transport you in time and even an entirely different place. There is nothing like it. A new addition to my fragrance arsenal is the L’Occitane Neroli & Orchidee. It is a gorgeous, girly scent that is a bit mysterious… Maybe even mischievous!
“A tantalizing and lovely fragrance, L’Occitane Néroli & Orchidée blends the scents of two precious white flowers in a beautiful harmony. A heart of radiant neroli essence from the Mediterranean is blended with caressing white orchid absolute from Madagascar. Fruity bursts of orange and heart notes of peach complete the sensuous bouquet, which lingers delicately on the body throughout the day.” – L’Occitane
I am a huge fan of both flowers! Orchids are one of my favorite flowers because they are visually stunning and their scent is beautiful. And anything I have ever worn that has notes of Neroli is an instant love. I can also smell the fruity bursts they mention. I think that is where I am getting the mischievous feel from. Also, those citrusy scents are very uplifting and makes me smile with every spritz!
The fragrance on it’s own lasts for hours… I will even say all day. I sprayed this on me as soon as I opened up the box and when my husband got home 7 hours later he kissed me hello and immediately asked me what scent I was wearing. He never asks so you know it has to be amazing, right? I personally love this fragrance and have been wearing it non-stop. I find that it layers well with other fragrances, too — but it definitely needs to be the star.
Even though this specific fragrance lasts all day long, one of the best tips I have for those of you out there that are looking to extend the longevity of your perfume is to layer it. This perfume has a corresponding Shower Gel and Body Milk in the same fragrance. The Shower Gel is so fragrant and mixed with the warm water in the shower it really became an uplifting aroma therapy session. PERFECT for the morning shower! I immediately apply lotion once I get out of the shower and this Body Milk is silky, luxurious, and most importantly NON-GREASY! It smoothes on and sinks into the skin very nicely. I then spritz the fragrance on top and voila — EXPERT layering.
L’Occitane Neroli & Orchidee an is going to be my go-to summer fragrance this year without a doubt. It captures everything that I love about the summer. Flirty and sweet with a punch of exciting. I love it.
