Lancome AROMA TONIC - Energizing Body Treatment Fragrance

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...
