C.O. Bigelow Winter Lemon Eau de Toilette Review
My dinner consisted of a bag of Smith’s Chipsticks tonight and my lips are puckered up as if I swallowed a lemon!
Speaking of lemons anyone try out the new C.O. Bigelow Winter Lemon Eau de Toilette?
Check it after the jump!
Winter Lemon suffers the same pains as C.O. Bigelow Lemon Eau de Parfum in the fact that it gets sucked up by my body chemistry and so does not last long. Le sigh.
Aside from that C.O. Bigelow Winter Lemon Eau de Toilette is a winner for me. Where as the older version is a true lemony scent that’s warm and sparkling this new version adds a little something extra into the works.
It’s crisper, fresher, it’s almost as if you can smell the coolness to it, like lemons on ice. The scent combines tart fresh lemon notes with fig, black currant, musk, rose, and sandalwood. First sniff it’s pure floral, on the skin it’s a musky, fruity, crisp blend with a warm underbelly, and final dry down is a strong dominate sparkling lemony note. It’s actually the dry down that really gets me buzzed as I love anything scented with lemon so I adore the fact that it dries down to such a mellow crispy lemon scent. At first the floral I get from sniffing kind of turned me off as I’m not big on floral but the dry down more than makes up for this so try not to pass it up if you get floral at first, give it a try and you’ll find the lemon really livens it up.
Overall, C.O. Bigelow Winter Lemon Eau de Toilette is a winner for me. Now that I have the toilette I want to haul the shower gel, body cream, etc…to layer up. The only down side is the scent doesn’t linger as long as I’d like and you’ll need a touch up inbetween but aside from that a very nice scent. Doesn’t quite remind me of the Holidays but does kind of get me in the mood for Winter and the cooler weather.
