Hey, tomorrow morning I’m taking off for Alaska for a week with my mom and two sons, it’s a gift for my mom’s 75th birthday. Sweltering here, it’s hard to imagine that in a day or two we are going to be plunged into rainy 40s, 50s and 60s. But I am so looking forward to a break from the heat.
And what perfume do you think I’m tucking a whole bottle of in my suitcase? L’Artisan Seville a l’Aube, you silly gooses. From clutching that first little piece of scented paper Denyse gave to me in Paris last November to bogarting that teeny vial for the last few months, to now spraying with wild abandon from my own damn bottle. Can you tell I’m stoked? I do have to give a brief disclaimer like Robin did. I’ve known Denyse for several years, and I always look her up when I’m in Paris, and I would have never said anything bad about this scent. I would have just done what I do with the other 7,000 fragrances released every year that don’t inspire me enough to write about them, just not say anything.
I adore this, it is liquid sunshine. And as it sits on your skin, it just seems to sun warm it more and kiss it with lovely, lovely orange blossom. This isn’r a an indolic orange blossom, it doesn’t feel smutty at all, it feels warm and languid and sensuous, warming everything it touches with its happy warmth.
That I’m a
Big Ole Orange Blossom ‘Ho
is an indicator that unless the ground up duck feet and put it in orange blossom, I’m going to at a minimum like it. This goes so far beyond that, I can’t even say. I’ve been wearing it nonstop, spritzing myself before I go to bed just so I can smell it when I get up. Hmmm, I should spray my sheets with it! If you aren’t down with The Orange Blossom, then you can just skip on past this review, not buy L’Artisan Seville a l’Aube – leaving more for me to scoop up because that Limited Edition thing is concerning – and wait for one of those new Tom Ford Tribbles that are popping up in September or October. L’Artisan Seville a l’Aube has released now in Europe and will be here in September
