Amouage Blossom Love is launching in 2017. Disclaimer, I received an early release sample from Amouage.
Notes are bergamot, heliotrope, amaretto, ylang, rose, cherry blossom, amber, tonka bean, vanilla and suede. Reading the note list got me a bit excited and a bit afraid. A gourmandish floral? Could be great! Could be sad.
Never fear, it’s beautiful. It’s not as complicated as Amouage Bracken Woman, but it is not intended to be that at all. This is from the Secret Garden Collection and joins Lilac Love.
It’s not a complex cherry blossom, and the boozy and other gourmand notes are not prominent – gourmand hates can breathe a sigh of relief. It is a joy to wear and perfect for the spring that is coming or already here. I sorta feel bad in almost 80-degree Denver while y’all are getting buried in snow and ice and cold elsewhere. Sorry, I’m sitting outdoors while I’m writing this, enjoying the sun on my face and a slightly cool breeze.
I think mostly that’s what Blossom Love is – a warm spring/summer day with a slight breeze. It is very feminine and lovely to wear. You won’t be crossing your eyes all day trying to figure out what weird thing it is doing. But perfumes don’t need to and shouldn’t always do that. You will walk and smell the trailing spring and feel nothing but love. In the long drydown, there is a relaxing into that vanilla and tonka – sorta like the end of that beautiful summer day. This is one that I will be wearing a lot this spring and summer.
Winners of the March sample grab bag – Annjune and Otamom. Just click on Drop Us a Note at the top, send me an e-mail, remind me of what you won and get me your mailing address. I’ll send you a quick e-mail to let you know I got your e-mail and it didn’t land in a spam filter and then get it on the way to you.
I’ll do sample giveaways on Amouage Blossom Love! Just comment to be entered. I’ll give away four samples to commenters drawn at random! So this semi-retirement thing rocks. I’ve found a bazillion things to do with me time and feel busier now than I did, but this is the fun busy where I’m doing things because I love them and want to do them, not because I’m trudging off to do them like I was going to the gallows!
