November 20th

Hello friends! I have recently gotten really into a perfume that I swapped away quite some time ago now and recently repurchased. That happens from time to time...I swap something away that wasn't necessarily a "dislike" or even a "neutral" but rather a "like but not a love" and then end up regretting it, and then repurchasing it. The first one that happened with was Versace Crystal Noir, which I now own again and love. The second, which I've been wearing most days at work recently, is Elle L'Aime from Lolita Lempicka. I'm not sure why this scent is so captivating to me right now. It's definitely a more summery scent, but then again, I always end up wearing perfumes during the wrong "season" for them.

So I ended up buying this from a lovely lady all the way in Hawaii because she was selling the set that came with the limited edition bracelet that matches the bottle. I have a lot of trouble with bracelets since my wrists are so small, but this is an adjustable cuff one and it's gorgeous. But, the scent of this stuff. As you guys may recall, I don't usually get on with lime scents so well. Burberry Brit is a notorious example. I've tried to love the EDT and EDP of that and just haven't. But this one is lovely on me! It's mainly coconut, lime, jasmine, vanilla, and ylang-ylang, with some bergamot and a hint of myrrh thrown in for good measure. It's a very dry lime, not sickly or juicy. It wears very well in this weather, and it's refreshing while still being cozy. I'm happy to have it again!
