My office went nuts for Estee Lauder's Beautiful Love. They are huge white floral fans.
It starts off with notes of Pomelo Zest, Cantaloupe and Mango Mist. The cantaloupe was an interesting addition. I detected a very ripe almost dark fruit note. It is full bodied and rich.
The notes are Jasmine Absolute & Sambac, White Freesia, Magnolia, Marigold, Ivy Leaves, Pink Pepper,Tahitian Tianre, Tuberose Absolute, Rose, Osmanthus, Carnation, Black Violet, White Orris, Vetiver, Cashmaran(Does anyone know what note this is?), Heliotrope, Tonka Bean, a Whipped Cream accord, Sandalwood, White Moss, and Patchouli.
It is a gorgeous jasmine based fragrance. It has a very mild powdery drydown with the heliotrope,violet and white moss notes. This fragrance has wonderful sillage and lasting power. It lasted through the work day and well into the night while I was watching Grey's Anatomy.
BTW: Was anyone else disappointed with the episode?
I expected more bang since we had weeks of reruns.
Beautiful Love is a huge punch of pretty. Just lovely in every way.
It makes me long for spring and that first bloom of flowers, green grass and a bright blue sky.
I have been spoiled with a fairly mild winter...but I am tired of gray Ohio skies. I want sun and pretty.
