My Summer Fragrance
Hey guys! How is everyone doing with this heatwave?
What??? What's the point of a heatwave if you can't complain about it? :-)
I'm joking... I'm loving this weather and today's post is an ode to my favourite perfume at the moment!
Summer has been very sunny and hot so far and I was really craving a light fragrance I could wear during daytime. Something light, fresh but still sophisticated and feminine.
I remember being a big CHANEL 'Chance' fan in my late twenties. I had a little sniff a few weeks ago when I was shopping and was very surprised... Whilst it gave me a huge burst of memories I didn't like it as much as I remembered. I used to carry the little twist and spray bottle everywhere with me and used up 6 refills! Isn't it funny how tastes change with time? Then I tried the lighter versions and completely fell in love with Eau TENDRE.
I'm generally into deeper, more sophisticated scents nowadays (having lived in the Middle East definitely opened me to a world of strong, heavy, woody fragrances) but CHANEL Eau Tendre is at the opposite side of the spectrum. It's so wearable and everything I'm craving at the moment. It is a beautiful fruity-floral, it's fresh, uplifting, exactly what I was looking for the hotter months!
I normally like to rotate my perfumes according to my mood but I have reached for this since the day I bought it. It's very soft and feminine, a scent that sparkles if I had to describe it in one word! It contains notes of grapefruit, quince, jasmine, amber, cedar and white musk. I find the lasting power pretty good considering it's so lightweight and delicate. It leaves a beautiful sillage and manages to stay fresh and crisp once it has dried down.
It's perfection in a bottle and will always be my summer 2018 fragrance, a very special season as my little monkey started to walk a few days ago!
Have you tried CHANEL Eau Tendre? What's your favorite summer fragrance?
Until next time!
