Sorry, folks, that I don’t have more for you, but I’ve developed one of those annoying late summer colds where you don’t feel out-and-out awful, but just generally yucky, and of course, the old schnoz is off-kilter. So I wasn’t able to do any of the live sniffing I wanted to for today’s post. Instead, I’ll share this from earlier in August.
On a recent trip to the big city, I saw this tube on Neiman’s MFK counter. I tried it cautiously, because the juice itself, although nice, is not really my cup of tea.
But I was pleasantly surprised. My hands felt moist, but not at all sticky or greasy, even some 5 hours later, and the hint of fragrance worked nicely, even with the various sample spritzes I was wafting. The cream diffuses somewhat the laundry-clean aspect of the juice and gives it a soft, pleasant hum of scent.
I could see how this would be lovely slathered on apres bath or shower, on a day (or night) when you might not be wearing fragrance, but want to be silky soft and very lightly scented.
Now with my current budget, I’m not going to spend $60 on a 5-ounce body product, but this is nice for what it is, and you could do a lot worse. Plus, it’s got a matching shower gel which looks divine. And I do like their pretty gold and white tubes.
Note: I realize that after some comments he made a while back about bloggers, Francis Kurkdjian is not the most beloved perfumer around these parts. However, he is undoubtedly a major talent, and anything he does is at least worth trying, so please, nobody shoot me. 🙂
