Gabriele Strehle Strenesse

In simple white hues, Strenesse comes in one of the most beautiful presentations I've seen; the milky, almost opaque juice in pale blueish-white is also mysterious and appealing. It comes from one of my favorite designers, Gabriele Strehle. The scent itself is a hypersweet, somewhat ozonic-musky Gourmand with prominent almond notes. Like the packaging, it smells milky to me, like sugared almond with cream, and all with an easy-going, sporty air about it.
