Clean Perfume

I just had to steal my former office M-W-F’s signature scent. I wasn’t really adventurous with CLEAN variants, as I already love the original one. But, hers also caught my heart’s, or rather, my nose’s desire.

CLEAN Eau de Parfum is a light, breezy concoction of various fruity-floral notes namely litsea cubeba, orange, sweet lime canada goose down women canada goose 2015 collection, pink grapefruit, passion lily, rose geranium, and white musk. What I love about it is that it stays and lingers for a while without being overpowering. To me it’s a perfect scent for the young and feminine, but that does not exclude the “young at heart”. 😛

A friend of mine has been a fan of the Shower Fresh variant. One time, I asked for a spritz for some reason I couldn’t remember. She took a bottle from her purse, and handed over to me. To my surprise, it’s CLEAN, only tinged in a shade of blue (or cerulean). I took a whiff,  immediately loved it, and spritzed it onto my pulse points.

CLEAN Shower Fresh is a mixture of lemon, mandarin, orange, jasmine, lily of the valley, orange blossom, sheer woods and musk. It has a distinct floral-fruity scent with a hint of musk as base notes. The scent wears off easily, unlike the original variant. Nonetheless, I still love it, being the less feminine version of the former. Think of Davidoff’s Cool Water or D&G Light Blue. 🙂

I’m for fresh-from-the-shower scents, without being too musky, floral or woody. CLEAN has been one of my few favourites, along with Lanvin Eclat d’Arpege. I was happy to score a couple on sale; I got each for 50% off! Oh yes, I was in olfactory heaven.

Price: Php 1,800/ $38 for a 30 ml (1 oz) bottle, but I got them at Php 900 each. 😀

Review: Majolica Majorca Majoromantica

Majolica Majorca Majoromantica Perfume
Majoromantica box

Part of Majolica Majorca’s Fake Sleeping chapter, Majoromantica is a fruity-floral perfume in a lovely collectible bottle.

With just one drop of this honey-sweet aphrodisiac from the forest, it will take you into the mysterious forest filled with blooming flowers and fruits. Its thick texture blends well into the skin, giving off a combination of sweet and fruity fragrance.

Top notes: Juicy and Fruity (Juneberry, Strawberry, Raspberry, Pomegranate, Apple, Fig, Mangosteen, Bergamot, Lemon, Mandarin)

Middle notes: Herbal and Floral (Rose, Sweet Pea, Jasmine, Muguet, Gardenia, Chamomile, Clary Sage)

Base notes: Sweet and Romantic (Vanilla, Maple, Brown Sugar, Sandalwood, Amber, Musk, Oakmoss)

It may appear like a complex concoction just by looking at the top, middle and base notes; but, the combination proves to have a nice-smelling outcome which has made me so hooked! 😉

Lovely Bottle, Wand-Like Applicator

For starters, Majolica Majorca instantly wins my heart with their ever-lovely packaging. Each never fails to look very interesting and enchanting. The  Majoromantica perfume bottle is no exception. It really looks so pretty and sophisticated, much like a potion bottle you typically see on women’s boudoir. It also has a wand-like applicator that I use when dabbing the perfume on my pulse points.

Perfume Concentrate Consistency, Sweet & Juicy Feminine Scent

It has a consistency which resembles a perfume concentrate. I believe it’s more of oil-based than alcohol-based, hence the thick consistency. It has a sweet and juicy feminine scent that I really, really love. I religiously use it day and night. I think I’m addicted to it! It’s neither overpowering nor too faint. It’s just right to my discriminating olfactory senses. 😛

I think it’d go together with a girly outfit – think of Korean/Japanese dressy girls and Zooey Deschanel as a style peg.

Currently, I have 2 bottles of Majoromantica, and my first one is near empty! 😀 I’m thinking of whether I’d keep the second bottle for personal use or give it away for sharing. 😛 Let’s wait and see this August!

Price is at Php 995.
