It is freezing in Ohio today. There is frost on the ground. I am breaking out the winter coats and mittens. The fragrance I chose today....is something that smells like the first blooms of spring.
I chose it because I am not ready for winter.
This is a limited edition version of Pleasures inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow. It is a frosted ballerina pink with a gold label.
It is a bottle full of lady-like charm.
I am afraid that I have never tried the original Pleasures so I am clueless if the formula has changed for this edition. The notes I detected are lillies, violet, peony, a smidge of gardenia, and musk. There might be moss in there as well. It reminds me of one of my favorite fragrance's La Base. It is fresh flowers with a "forest floor note" thrown in.
It is lovely and slightly inappropriate for today's chilly weather.
I loved it.
It is available from September to December 2006. It is a limited edition.
The 2.5 oz EDP is $58 and is available at your local Lauder counter.
