L’Occitane Fleur d’Or & Acacia

20131128_141709Today I am introducing to you one of my very favorite skincare line of products L’Occitane. The latest in their line of products is the fragrance – Fleur d’Or & Acacia; An out of the world olfactory experience, a perfume that is capable of creating more than just a memory.

The perfume in the collection of Fleur d’Or  begins with, and maintains, an intense acacia-mimosa accord; and at first, this accord smells genuine. The lemon note in Fleur d’Or & Acacia’s opening serves as a momentary “booster” for the florals. After Fleur d’Or & Acacia’s authentic-smelling acacia-mimosa notes vanish, and that happens quickly, they are replaced by acacia-mimosa ‘chemicals’ that soar into space, and up through my nasal passages. Fleur d’Or & Acacia’s floral notes change from “pure” to modified; the effect is similar to finding a beautiful acorn or piece of driftwood and spray painting it gold with inexpensive enamel.

As Fleur d’Or & Acacia dries down, clean wood-musk comes forward, not quite reaching “laundry room” aromas but too clean for my taste. Overall, I would describe Fleur d’Or & Acacia as a flower syrup (sweetened with sugar/sterilized honey); it’s powerful, and, in the end, cloying. Fleur d’Or & Acacia is a hyper-feminine perfume; it has excellent sillage and unbelievable endurance. I would definitely recommend it to you all. It’s amazing for this festive season and holidays.



Would you try the perfume? Or have you tried it? Do let us know your thoughts!

    Every coastal area around the world is slowly becoming the
    hotspots for tourist destinations, not only for the scenic beauty but also they offer varied range of water adventures.
    A few hints include avoiding shops that use swimming pools to teach you
    in. Working as a Diving Instructor once you start
    doing it is not just a job, it becomes a way of life, a fantastic rewarding experience
    and a great way to teach people one of the things you love most in life: Diving.

Ever since I came to the UAE, every day has been busier than the other, then I checked into my room at Movenpick JBR today and instantly felt very relaxed.
This sunset is a testament to it, isn't it so pretty? What do you think?

One word that comes to your mind when you see this pic?The colors of fashion and the warmth of food comes together quite subtly at @harpersbazaarcafe in @citywalkdubai
As we had lunch there today, the atmosphere was more than relaxing.
Sometimes I wonder what it is I do with my blog. I think I found an answer to it . I collect experiences and carefully curate them to create a little museum of my memories with you right here.
