So recently I raved about L’Occitane’s Neroli & Orchidee scent and if it’s possible, I love another scent from the brand even more. We’re going to be talking about L’Occitane’s Cherry Blossom fragrance, or what I like to call it myself – one of the most gorgeous fragrances of the year so far and it’s going to take something very special to knock it out of the top spot.
I spoke a bit about it in my July Favourites video and I held it up to my head a lot to truly explain to you how much I love it and yet I felt that it thoroughly deserved it’s own post because you need to try this if you haven’t already. If you have tried it already, then why haven’t you told me about it?! Cherry Blossom. It’s fruity but not too fruity, floral but not too floral, has a light, airy, fresh and delicate feel to it and it’s a clear winner in work too. Every single time I spray it in work, someone will walk by the office and say “Oooooh you smell nice, what is that” to which I respond “Here, put this on you now and go in peace to love and smell gorgeous”. It’s this type of generous behaviour that has half the bottle already gone, but I’ve explained this before that when I love something so much like this, I want to tell everyone about it. I want everyone to experience it, to enjoy it and it’s an added bonus that I get to work with bridies that smell delightful!
Now I don’t know what Cherry Blossoms actually smell like but if it’s like this scent, then I’m hooked and need to go wherever they are. It also has notes of freesia and lily of the valley, balanced out with amber and musk. It has an air of freshness that will lift your spirits, and really is a delicate and feminine scent that is an outright winner especially with the girls at work. It lasts for a couple of hours before I need to sploosh myself again and once I do, all is well in the world. L’Occitane hasan entire collection in the Cherry Blossom family and finding that link for you there has just showed me that they have a rollerball version! I’m 100% getting that next time I’m in town because I’ve been carrying the big bottle around with me all the time, even to my cousin’s wedding last weekend! If you’re looking for a pretty, light, slighly fruity, floral scent that won’t offend anyone in the office, then you need to give this a whiff because I’m hooked! And give me another few weeks and I guarantee I’ll be finished this bottle of perfume. I’ve only ever finish one bottle of perfume before, so this is huge, considering I’m a perfume junkie/collector! At €45.50 for 75 ml, I’ll be repurchasing this when I run out, which will be in about 4.5 weeks by my calculations and inability to leave home without it. Cherry Blossom. Go check it out and thank me later.
