I was blessed to receive this perfume as a gift from the amazing Dave Lackie-Editor of Beauty Departure Magazine. I love new fragrances, yet I try so few of them. This is a scent that I can not get enough of.
Julia Roberts is the face of this campaign, and it is easy to see why. The fragrance is light, bright and attention-getting, just like its spokesmodel. Retailing for $85 per fluid ounce. This perfume is very different. Although its floral, the Patchouli and Jasmine notes strike me the most. The finish is almost dry, like walking through memory and searching to capture it.
Beautiful and long-lasting this delicate scent lasts all day, yet is never overpowering. I would totally recommend it.
