Tom Ford Soleil Blanc is the latest entry for the Private Blend series. Inspired by a private island with never-ending summer, they have listed only amber and floral notes. Okay, that’s precise.
Think sun-warmed skin, ylang, oils. Didn’t Tom do Azuree Soleil for Estee Lauder? I still love that. This is an upscale, much more refined Azuree Soleil. Very beachy, but not Coppertone beachy. A soft, buttery floral. If you like the summer skin suntan smells in perfume, this one is really good. I like it better than Azuree Soleil because it’s not as emphatic on being a suntan lotion. I’m thinking I’ll feel stronger about it as the summer comes on. It does remind me of Costa Rica, and that’s not a bad thing.
Good grief, I hate it when I get to the end of a review and find it was just a paragraph.
I am still wearing the Orlovs pretty much all the time. I’ve decided I could wear Cross of Asia pretty much every day and never be an unhappy perfumista. So it’s gone on the list to go on the rocket ship off the exploding planet if that day ever comes.
So let’s do some samples of Tom Ford Soleil Blanc in a giveaway. I’ll do four samples. I’m going to Paris in a couple of weeks. If you know of a new release (there’s a couple of new Guerlains, I hear) that I should make sure and look for over there, just let me know in comments. Otherwise, do you like beach fragrances at all? Not at all? Never tried them beyond Coppertone?
Do you like beachy scents? I’m still the biggest fan of the CB At the Beach for a summer beach smell. But I think tom Ford Soleil Blanc comes in right next to it. That is pretty good company for beach perfumes.
