Bvlgari Eau Parfumee Green Tea
This is one of my favorite "fresh" fragrances. I really like it when I'm in the mood for a crisp, clean scent. The top notes are tea and citrus, with the subtle florals, spices, and woods emerging through the dry down. It's delightful and always keeps me in a great mood when I wear it. I find it to be soft, smoky, sexy, and clean; in effect, Green tea, but 100 times better! In my mind, the coriander and smoked wood accord are what truly make this scent a standout among other green tea fragrances. I love this scent! This is now a staple of my fragrance wardrobe (I like to try out various scents – surprise, surprise!). I have to say I am hooked.

About six months ago I was sweeping through one of my favorite department stores and came across the tall striking green bottle at the Lancôme counter. I was in a rush, so I simply popped open the top and spritzed myself and quickly left. Within about a minute, as I was walking I got the most amazing sensation – it was the most wonderfully, citrus-y fragrance I’ve ever smelled; lime, lemon, and green tea. Unfortunately, life got busy as it often does, and I never got back to the counter… So when this treatment fragrance came to my desk you can imagine how I felt! This is THE scent of summer to me -- a semi-lotion-tonic-liquid-fragrance which actually cools your skin when it's hot. What is fascinating is that I've never gotten more compliments about a fragrance than when I wear Aroma Tonic. It's a great smell and not overwhelming. I can wear this fragrance for weeks on end and not get tired of it. It makes me feel so happy, positive and alive! This really is the ultimate light, fresh, summery scent! It contains notes of lime, cardamom, green tea, osmanthus and ginger. The tart lime note gives this fragrance an uplifting, refreshing quality. The staying power is better than average for a body spray, I'd say. I can smell it up to three hours after spraying five spritzes. This LASTS and LASTS. I sprayed this on after my shower each morning and by late afternoon I would still smell it. Also, for all you “bottle snobs” (you know who you are), the Lancôme packaging and bottle is simply heaven to look at and hold! It smells divine, but if you're not into green and/or citrus scents, this is probably not for you. Also, if you have dry skin, apply your body lotion/oil before spraying this fragrance all over your body as it does have some alcohol in it which can be drying. Note: A few spritzes of this in a light body oil make an amazing massage oil for yourself or your loved one! Amazing...

This thick, hydrating cream made my skin feel extremely soft & supple in the morning, after I had applied before bed. This cream is extremely thick, so I only need a small amount each time. Note: Start with less and add more if you need it, as I noticed that when I put too much on at first it actually made my skin greasy. It’s also very important that you warm it up in your hands before you apply it or else it won't spread on the skin. I also loved the fragrance, which was a very unique tea type of scent (like Earl Grey!). The results of using this week after week were just fantastic. I found that it gave my skin the type of intense hydration it needed, while also plumping and soothing my skin. I also got a lovely glow to my skin, and did not irritate my more oily parts in the t zone. I looked forward to my nightly cleansing ritual because I felt like I was really pampering myself with this crème. Only a tiny bit of Creme Ancienne is needed, so this luxury product really does pay for itself as it will last for at least 6 - 8+ months, if not more. On drier/colder days I would also use this as a day cream under my makeup and despite its really thick texture, it soaked in beautifully. This is the most amazing skin care product that Fresh has ever created.

This lip treatment is incredibly yummy, and yes does taste like lemon drop cookies. I found that this is best for morning use as a base for lip color to keep lips hydrated (those of you with very dry lips will need to apply to more frequently however—which is not necessarily a bad thing since it’s so heavenly tasting!). In addition it has a neat metal shape(it’s a bit hefty in weight) and that means it was easy to find in my bag. I love that the heavy duty twist on cap prevents debris or dust from collecting around the cap. It coated my lips with a protective layer that made them perfectly soft AND it has the SPF, which is a must! This is a lip moisturizer for when you want to treat yourself and smile every time you take it out of your bag. Note: For a great weekly lip treatment I would exfoliate with a washcloth and then apply a thick layer of the treatment before bed for super soft and luscious lips in the AM!

The scent is accurate (it really smells like jasmine, but not overpowering!) This product also moisturizes very well without becoming greasy. I loved applying this in the evening after my bath. I loved the velvety finish and true jasmine scent. This is a luxury purchase well worth it for the lovely packaging, effective moisturizing and divine fragrance!
