My Spring and Summer "IT" Fragrance
I like to pick perfumes that represent certain periods in my life so that any time I re-use them, I instantly get reminded of a precise moment, person or event. This spring and summer will be very different for me compared to the last few years. I'm not a student anymore so I'm actually finding April and May to be rather relaxing as I'm not freaking out about any deadlines. Of course with the warm weather coming here, and the longer days, I'm excited for beach adventures and holidays and this scent really captures the essence of a fun summer - light, long lasting and unique.
And for those of you wondering, I didn't ditch my Molecule 01 perfume, I wanted to just reinvent myself a little and try a new fragrance that I intend to use to help me capture in my mind what's going on in my life at the moment, and as Gucci has become my favourite luxe brand this past year, I thought I would go all out and add their scents to my growing collection of perfumes. Bamboo* is advertised as the fragrance for the confident and sexy woman and features top notes of bergamot and base notes of sandalwood and vanilla.
Personally, I deem this to be an all day/ everyday scent and the age bracket is pretty open, but I would place it in "ladies in their 20s and above" section. The bottle is quite unique and features a boldly cut art-deco style glass facets. I like the fact that it's meant to represent bamboo's characteristics of strength and confidence with femininity and poise. I don't find it to be overwhelming at all but it does linger on for almost the whole day. I would top it up if I was going on a night event just to refresh myself but overall its lasting power is decent. I get complimented whenever I wear it and I look forward to using it up in the next few months.
What's your current spring and summer scent?
