Antonia's Flowers Floret


Antonia's Flowers Floret (1995) was made famous by its association with rapper Eve who was said to never leave home without a bottle of Floret stashed in her bag. I was lucky enough to have tested Floret a few years before that bit of perfume celeb news, back when Antonia's Flowers offered free samples of their luxurious niche line. Based in The Hamptons in New York's Long Island (just outside New York City), Floret hails from a florist shop. Redolent of sweet peas and ripe, peachy apricots, it's a beautiful combination of fruits and florals, fresh and sweet, with a hint of green vivacity, for summertime and any time of year.

I also recommend for you to try Tiempe Passate by Antonia's Flowers, made famous by Jennifer Lopez who is said to adore the blend of salty Montauk rose and ambery woods.
