Just a quick note, I’m very…very…….VERY behind on comments. I apologize!
On that note, let’s take a look at Caudalie Zeste de Vigne my new obsession. I’m a fruity sweet kinda girl, throw in a few foody scents too and I’m as happy as a clam. I like really sweet fragrances and in some aspects my fragrance preferences are somewhat immature.
However, there are times that I like more unique, unusual, and mature fragrances like Annick Goutal Eau d’Hadrien which is where Zeste de Vigne comes into play. This unique blend is one of three fragrances that Mathilde Thomas founder of Caudalie created which recreates the feeling of walking through her family’s vineyard at dawn, noon, and dusk.
Zeste de Vigne is inspired by a noontime stroll through the vineyard orangery, with the sun bathing citrus trees that delicately perfume the air with dazzling sparkles of tangy citrus, orange blossom, and lemon according to Mathilde Thomas.
For me, it’s bottled up sunshine with just the right touches of green!
My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale order was sadly lacking. What did you haul?
Mine consisted of Dior Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet Eau de Toilette.
How awful. But there wasn’t anything that I really needed or wanted this year. It seemed quite uneventful.
Did you haul Blooming Bouquet?
I love it but….!
Caudalie has a few new fragrances available at the moment and feel free to correct me one that’s been repackaged.
Caudalie Fler de Vigne Fresh Energizing Fragrance has been around for a little bit I believe and escaped my notice but it takes a prominent role among the newest fragrance creations from the brand.
Repackaged in a a flattering slimline bottle with Caudalie’s grape emblem embedded on the bottle this shouts freshness without ever having to smell the fragrance inside! Founder and creator of Caudalie, Mathilde Thomas, was inspired to create these fragrances to capture the feeling of walking through her family’s vineyard during the dawn, noon, and dusk moments of her day!
For me Caudalie Fler de Vigne Fresh Energizing is a fresh start that celebrates dawn with a burst of sunshine, rain, and the uplifting, energized feeling of a a new day ahead!
Majolica Majorca is a Japanese sub-brand by Shiseido. It’s one of my very favorite brands from Japan however in recent years I’ve kinda fell off the fan girl bandwagon since many of the releases haven’t really captured my eye.
During the Holidays, MJ released a new fragrance Majolica Majoromantica which I enjoyed very much and most recently with the Summer Collection they released a new limited edition version of the scent.
Let’s have a look!
Although I was already a Stila fan girl at the time of it’s release I still have flashbacks of my intro to Stila whenever I smell Creme Bouquet. At the time of the Stila Creme Bouquet Fragrance release I was still a bit of a Stila virgin. I think my first collection from the brand was the Picnic in the Park one….does anyone remember that release? CLICK!
About two years later or perhaps a bit more Creme Bouquet was released along with Jade Blossom. And, please, correct me if I’m wrong wasn’t there a third fragrance as well? The trio, as I recall, was meant to be layered together to create different blends and that was actually how it was marketed. Needless to say I loved these fragrances and was ever so happy when Stila recently brought back to full size of Creme Bouquet but I stand by my right to say it’s a damn shame they didn’t bring back the other two.
