I know it's been awhile since I've done a "scent search" post. Life is busy ya know.
I have found not one but TWO scents I'm getting for my Christmas scent(s). I'm the fragrance wearer that is very particular about what I buy and wear. I have allergies and a very sensitive nose so I need to be very careful in choosing a scent. I don't know about you but I sure don't want to spend good money on a fragrance I'm not able to wear and enjoy it. I have to try a fragrance for a period of time before I buy it.
I'd seen Flowerbomb from time to time but I hadn't tried it despite it being introduced in 2005. Last weekend while perusing the fragrance counter I noticed it and gave it a try. I stood and smelled...and smelled... and smelled. I told the perfume chic I'd have to test it out a while before buying, but I thought it was a winner. After leaving with a sample on my wrist I found myself back at the counter a few hours later (about 6 shopping bags later). I still liked it after all that time passed. That says a lot since scents don't usually make it past an hour before making my nose itch, giving me a headache, or fading too quickly for me to even remember the name. ** Top notes shiver with fresh and sweet accords of bergamot and green tea. A heart is floral and opulent with intensive, sweet and pure Sambac jasmine, seductive Centifolia rose, freesia and Cattleya orchid. Musk and patchouli in a base wrap us with an oriental scent, while its milky and powdery notes gently fondle the skin. Very nice. I am inclined to wear it for an evening scent primarily, but I could be persuaded to wear it more frequently.
