The perfect summer scent-Yves Rocher's Neroli Eau de Parfum

Disclaimer: I received product in order to facilitate a review. My opinion is always 100% truthful. I will never recommend a product that I didn't like. Your opinion on said product may differ from mine. 

One of my favorite times of year to wear new scents is during the Summer. That is when a variety of my favorite fruity new concoctions like to come out. It's also when I love to carry a smaller version of my favorite perfume to get an instant reboot during the day. Scents like Neroli, by Yves Rocher accomplish that for me.

My first thought "Please don't be another overpowering floral scent"  and to my happy surprise, Neroli is nothing like that. It is described as a musky floral combo, but to my senses comes a fruity floral, yet spicy perfume.

As always, this scent is encased by their ever growing gorgeous packaging, in a heavy duty plastic with a pretty milky color that blends into a clear background from the bottom up. 

Upon first spray, I smelled a very orange citrus fruity scent, then I detected a certain spice to it.  A few minutes later after rubbing my wrists together, it died down to a lightly sweet, floral, yet fruity and spicy scent. Neroli is a very feminine and refreshing scent, perfect for any woman. Not at all overpoweringly sweet or spicey. Just a nice union of unique notes. I find it very unique, incomparable to anything I have ever smelled.

To give you a better idea, here is a breakdown of the notes.
  • Main notes: Bigarade and Bergamot. I definitely detect a lot of the Bergamot, which gives the spicy note.
  • The heart of it: Orange Blossom and Neroli. Neroli is an essential oil that is distilled from the flowers of the Seville orange.
  • Base note: Musks. My nose detects very light notes of this. I love this perfume and I hate heavy musks, so that should give you a good idea.
The lotion isn't thick or thin, it's just right for a light moisturizer in the summer and left my hands smooth. It is an exact duplicate of the perfume, along with the shower gel, which was pleasant to use this morning. I paired everything together and I feel like my scent may be lingering all over the place. This stuff has staying power!

I also recommend adding other fruity scents to compliment, such as more orange blossom layered on top or even a sweet orange citrus scent if you like it sweeter. 

Neroli is all natural and made with a list of ingredients that is not a mile long. This fragrance and it's ingredients have not been tested on animals, as with all their products. 

Those of you sensitive to perfume sprays, I usually cough when I spray perfume and I noticed I didn't with this one. 

You can purchase Neroli  perfume for a competitive price of $37, the lotion for $16 and the shower gel for $14. Free Shipping when you spend only $40!
