Product of the Day- Perfume

Today's product of the day is brought to you from Paris. Ok, no I didn't really go to Paris
to pick up from perfume, but it would make for a better blog post if I had, right?! 

While in ATL a few weeks ago I decided I wanted a new perfume and I wanted it to be 
something that was similar to my favorite scents, (Light Blue by Dolce and Gabbana and 
Flora by Gucci) but very unique in it's own way. I explained to the lady at the Nordstrom
counter that I am very sensitive to strong scents and I want something light, but feminine. 

After sampling and sniffing lots of different scents and going back to coffee beans to prevent
myself from passing out we came up with something that I really like. 

Hermes (pronounced with the H silent) has a perfume called "Un Jardin Sur Le Nil." 
I am pretty terrible with describing scents so I'm going to let Sephora do the job:

"Inspired by annual themes at Herm├Ęs, this fragrance is an olfactory stroll, in situ creation, in the footsteps of the in-house perfumer.
Jardin sur le Nil is a sensory stroll along the Nile River. A new translation of freshness: green, mouth-watering, and tangy scents. A fragrance of light and life, generous and sparkling."

When smelling this as compared to Light Blue you can definitely smell a more green scent. That
probably doesn't make much sense if you have never smelled anything like this, but it's very 
fresh, light, and it does have a certain orange citrus smell about it. I smell green above everything 
else though. Very grassy and summery. 

The price tag on this small little 1.6 oz bottle is hefty. I have never spent $90 before taxes on a 
perfume for myself, but this was a special purchase and weekend with Mdub. We both decided 
to pick out scents that we liked on each other rather than picking something out on our own. 
And when wearing our scents it would remind us of each other and our weekend. 
So cute, right?! : ) 

So, with all that said this is not something I wear everyday. I could wear it everyday b/c it is light
enough, but due to the price and it being more of a memorable purchase I choose to wear it more
for special things. I think it's one of those perfumes that really grows on you the more and more
you wear it. I wasn't 100% sure about it when I first started wearing, but after sporting it several times
I really do love it and look forward to putting it on.

  1. Aww... how sweet and cheesy :) I love my new perfume that I got for my birthday.. but now I can't remember what it's called and I am too lazy to get up and look. :)


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
