Summer Scents: C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum Review

When word of C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum hit the Muse was quite hyped for a sniff. She loves all of the C.O. Bigelow Lemon Collection and the general idea of a lemony fragrance along the same vein absolutely thrilled her to bits and pieces.


Check out my review of C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum

Considering the formula is inspired by it’s Lemon Body Cream I was all about hauling this as quickly as I could get my greedy hands on it. I admit I was worried they’d end up messing it up with notes it didn’t need especially since the description reads of green lemon leaves, creamy undertones, and a warm white musk. That sounds all nice and lovely but honestly the Lemon Body Cream is more about straight up sweet, tart lemon without all the unnecessary extras. You know what I mean dontcha?


I was pleasantly surprised that it does indeed smells simply like lemon, particularly like C.O. Bigelow Lemon Body Cream. No fanfare here it’s just sparkling, fruity, and sweet, with a round of tartness which blends it out to a happy effervescent note that the body lotion lacks. It’s quite lovely and light, beautiful for Summer wear.

I absolutely love it.


C.O. went all out with the packaging on this guy as well. It’s a large glass bottle that’s 3.5oz in size but feels way larger. Right now it’s Buy Two C.O. Bigelow items and Get Two Free including this fragrance which regularly retails for $34 USD so if you have a friend (or just overindulge yourself) you can split the costs between the two of you. It retails for $34.50 USD and I think it’s well worth picking up. I admit I was slightly disappointed that it didn’t last longer on my skin so I was left touching up after two hours or so but regardless it’s such a nice Summer scent that I can’t resist Muse Approving it for purchase. If you absolutely adore the C.O. Bigelow Lemon line or you’re just simply a lover of lemony scents this one is for you. Truly a great blend for Summer!

    I love the fresh smell of Bigelow Lemon body lotion. My store nearest me has gone away, so it’s nice to find another.
