I was really chuffed to find this sample in my LiveBlogger goody bag. I had smelt it whilst in the Orla Kiely store in Covent Garden with my lovely Mother & we both really liked it. She had used the tester and we noticed how well the scent settled down and lasted on her skin. It was lovely and fresh. Although at the time I thought it was’t a great summery scent.
So to find a sample in my bag made me very happy. I’ve been using is sparingly and trying to make it last as long as possible. I’ve been a huge fan of the Orla Kiely print as most people are. They are so recognisable and iconic now. I managed to pick up a dress in the Orla Kiely line released in UNIQLO & I LOVE IT. But im getting side-tracked, back to the perfume.
As I said I thought it wasnt a great summery fragrance but think it’s a lovely scent for Autumn as it has
‘Notes of uplifting Green Tea, Peach and Fig combine with natural Rose extract and delicate White Flowers. Base notes of Cedarwood, Sandalwood and classic Musk’
It’s a really warm rich scent that is easy to wear. I love it and my mum keeps trying to pinch my sample. So I’d say that is a good fragrance for most people. It’s so hard to describe a perfume & I think also fragrance sit and develop differently on everyone. So if you get the chance to test this Orla Kiely Eau De Parfum then do so. You won’t be disappointed.
You can buy this Orla Kiely Eau de Parfum online HERE for £55 for 100ml. I must also just mention the packaging is as lovely as you’d expect from Orla Kiely. It’s a real treat. Have you tried this or any other bath / body products from Orla Kiely. Let me know what you thought.
