Fragrance of the Moment

This month, I've settled on a new "signature" scent: one part refreshing with bright citrus notes and cool, high-pitched synthetic marine, and one part romantic with fruits and flowers on a light musk (not too sweaty or detergentesque - I dislike most synthetic commercial fragrances for household products) base. It's essentially an orange blossom fragrance following Jean-Paul Gaultier Ma Dame, with a gentle, semi-sweet gardenia heart, and ending on a lilac-musk base very similar to Guerlain's muscinade (as the modern guerlinade is known). The bottle is lovely except for the plastic bow. Miss Dior Chérie L'eau (my FOTM pictured above) is also similar in scent to Kenzo Amour Florale, a fellow limited edition summer '09 flanker, which I also wear but have yet to own (but hope to, soon). Thank goodness for great flankers!
