Contrary to the Muse’s utmost belief that Strawberry Fields was a legendary journey through Lennon’s head when he was dropping a tab, in actuality it’s a real place that he was talking about. Dontcha just want to believe that half his songs are all about a psychedelic acid trip? John Lennon is like the poster boy for good acid trips a la the un-paranoid journey.
But seriously…Strawberry Fields was the name of a Children’s Home next to John’s childhood home in Woolton. He actually played around the area and in a garden behind the actual home which was indeed named Strawberry Fields.
Dontcha love it? You get a review and FUN facts bout John Lennon. How cool am I?
I won’t bug you further with the details of Strawberry Fields (I know all sorts of fun trivia about the Beatles) but speaking on the topic of strawberries and fields and such is my lead in for Fresh Strawberry Flowers Perfume. Loving all over it lately after purchasing it during Sephora Friends and Family.
Check it after the jump!
Although in my mind’s eye I was thinking Strawberry Flower must smell like Strawberry…true but also quite complex, very fun, and beautiful. I purchased this because I wanted something a little different from Fresh and was getting tired of my normal adventures with Fresh Lemon Sugar. Having never smelled it prior it was kind of a spontaneous surprise me type of fragrance as I did order online (something you should never do, buy perfume online that is).
Fresh Strawberry Flowers Perfume combines fruity top notes of strawberry with a sparkling citrus that morphs the blend and creates a cross between fruity and tart. It manages to have a slight floral dry down but also dominates with a tart envelope of lemon, mandarin, and yuzu and a heavier underlay of strawberry. It’s quite interesting and very difficult to describe but just know quite lovely to say the least.
It’s supposedly limited edition and exclusive to Sephora but it’s been around a while now which I count my blessings for as I think I’ll pick up another. It’s an Eau de Parfum so a little goes a long way for plenty of throw and lovely linger. It used to be $38 but is now marked down to $24. It’s sported the $24 price tag for a while and in my humblest is a great value for the price considering it’s parfum and has a high oil content.
Overall, I love the combination of fresh, juicy strawberries with touches of tart citrus. A very fun blend that can work throughout the day, it’ll be a nice addition to my Spring and Summer perfume wardrobe.
Anyone have it?
