First, here's Carol's wonderful review of Dutch Blue Hyacinth
Because of her post, we swapped and I received a glorious sample. Thank you Carol!
I have tried it a couple of times. I absolutely love it at first spritz! It is as if I went into my garden, pulled out a few hyacinths and smeared them all over myself.
But then...it fades. It gets whisper soft very quickly on my skin and I want to cry "Don't go, please don't go!"
I have to reapply very often, and mostly I do it to get that initial joy of hyacinth.
Oh I really wish it would stay longer.
Chanel Chance - I tried it at work yesterday and then ZING I got a headache. Was it because of Chance or was it because I was totally stressed over grant reporting. I'll have to give it another try soon as it is promoted as a light chypre. I like chypres. I do!
SJP Covet. I won a bottle from Signature Scent. I like this scent and I do wear it pretty often when I don't want to be distracted too much, and that isn't a negative comment at all. It is very natural on me. Here's a quote from fragrantica.com: "Covet opens with intensive spicy-green-mint note of geranium leaves, bright and luminous Sicilian lemon, lavender, and warm and slightly spicy chocolate notes. The heart notes are honeysuckle, magnolia, and lily of the valley. The base is darker, composed of cashmere wood, musk, vetiver, teak wood and amber"
Thanks SS! It's a wonderful addition to my collection.
