It’s not often that I review fragrances. It’s not that I don’t get a bunch of them sent my way (I have 4 on my desk right now), it’s just that I have a specific scent type that I stick to; clean, fresh, not musky or heavy. Anything that even borders on the verge of old lady isn’t for me. I want something light and feminine where you can catch just the right amount of the scent when I walk by.
If you’re into the same sort of thing, you’ll love Elizabeth Arden’s Green Tea Cherry Blossom ($30). It’s everything I love in a scent; clean, light, green, with a hint of sweetness without smelling like candy or a dessert. It’s a balanced sort of scent where the green and the floral offset and one doesn’t overpower than the other. I first spritzed a little on my arm, then my drapes so the scent would fill my office, and in a diffuser in a hallway. Soon my whole house smelled like this sweet spray. I’ve since been wearing nothing else. I figure at 9 months pregnant with my limited wardrobe which consists mostly of ‘cute t-shirts’ and tanksI can use a little pick-me-up in whatever form that may come.
