Concept: I have a normal day and a normal sleep schedule and then I have the ability to write a coherent blog entry.
So, I wasn't able to wear Violaceum today because I had an awful headache, so I'm going to review a different fragrance! Today we're going with Laila by Geir Ness!
So, this fragrance puzzles me a bit. I can't really find any notes anywhere, other than "floral notes" or "wildflowers" and possibly watermelon as well. Laila is a slightly older scent and it came out in 1995 so it definitely has that aquatic-floral 90's vibe to it. But what it actually smells like it soap. And I don't mean soap like a white ivory bar of soap in the shower, I mean like some generic Dial hand soap. Stuff they probably have at any given restaurant in the washrooms. And yet, it's not a bad smell. It's obviously very clean smelling, the florals are nice, the aquatic element is nice...it's even a little comforting. But when I realized it smelled like that pink bathroom soap that you come across all the time, it boggled my mind a bit. It makes me wonder what other people think of this fragrance. It's not too hard to come by, and it's also very reasonably priced at $56 USD. I'd love to learn more about it.
