What we say:
It took me all of 5 seconds to decide this is my favourite fragrance launch of 2020. The fragrance is perfectly balanced. Sweet, but not too sweet. Floral, but not overly floral. And exotic without being completely unfamiliar. It has a beautiful floral scent thanks to sensual patchouli and the inclusion of Costa Rica’s national flower, the guaria morada. This is perfectly balanced by the sweetness of orange. It’s a fragrance I can see myself wearing to death in summer, but it’s not light enough to make it inappropriate for winter. In fact, you can totally pull it off in colder weather too thanks to the warmth of the floral notes. It’s an eau de parfum, meaning the concentration of the scent is stronger, so it lasts pretty much all day. This bottle is worth every cent, and you can be certain I’ll replace mine as soon as it’s empty.
