Friday Fragrance: Fresh Ocean Breeze Scent
Jakarta is raining cats and dogs, and don’t you just wish you’re somewhere warm and dry? Well, it’s not raining as bad anymore, but still, I’m yearning for a warmer and relaxing place to get away from the drama of the traffic during rainy days!
This whole situation reminds me of a conversation on fragrances with Affi. I asked her, on a rainy day like today, is there any type of fragrance that suits better for the weather? She recommended warm notes such as gourmand note, for instance vanilla, caramel or amber. Another choice is picking up a fragrance which reminds you of a warmer scenery.
That’s exactly how I feel when I picked up the Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua Woman. Just by looking at the bottle truly reminds me of the clear blue sky, not a gloomy one like what we’ve been seeing lately. Of course, the name give you a hint and expectation of the overall scent.
Once I spray it, I was transported to a beach – imagining that I’m not here sitting at my desk but instead standing somewhere with white sands between my toes and a clear blue sky above me. That’s what scent can do to you: transport you somewhere else. The scent is light, airy, crisp and feminine. It’s not too heady and reminds you of the effortless elegant style during your holiday.
The notes are pink lady apple, cucumber, apricot and white peony to open up the fragrance. Not the intense fruity floral first note, but airy and breezy one. Followed by a bouquet of white flower on the heart note consisting of jasmine, tiare, gardenia and magnolia. Remember the scenery of sunset where it looks warm but the night breeze starts to seep in? That’s how this fragrance closes, with Sundrenched Woods, Cedarwood and Transparent Musk.
If you, just like me, need a gateway from the routine of your tasks and need to be transported somewhere that is warmer and more relaxing, trust this fragrance to do the job, until the next real holiday.
And good news, currently Calvin Klein fragrance is having a special price for Eternity Aqua Woman during their exhibition in several malls in Jakarta (Metro Pondok Indah, Sogo Kelapa Gading, Sogo Central Park and Seibu Department Store) from 11 – 17 February 2013. So mark the date and get the perfume!
