TRU Fragrance – Hip Notes Summer 2013 Limited Edition Orange Blossom
I’ll be honest I am not one on the forefront of fashion, at all, I am not even in the race, but I can never say no to trying a new fragrance! Tru Fragrance, a leading boutique fragrance development company, has announced that their fragrance for this summer is Orange Blossom.
Something I never realized is that oranges are one of the few plants that bloom and bear fruit at the same time, and ALL parts of the orange tree are used in a fragrance – the flowers being the most fragrant. Hip Note Orange Blossom is extracted from these white flowers to create a “creamy, rich, floral sent.”
I was surprised when I read this quote as I had been spending part of yesterday walking around sniffing this fragrance because it DID remind about something from my childhood. I couldn’t remember exactly what, some lotion or shampoo at my aunt’s house that I really liked (The aunt AND the shampoo, lol).
This Hip Notes was created by Patricia Choux, a perfuner of fragrance house Takasago. She has a career in perfumery spanning 20 years! Having a hand in creating fragrances, including Marc Jacobs Orange Splash, Michael Kors Very Pretty and Jo Malone Blue Agava and Cacao, amongst others.
Tru Fragrance predicts that “Nostalgic Floral” will be among the top fragrance trends for summer 2013.
Even if you don’t follow fashion trends this fragrance is one I am sure most women can wear and enjoy. It is subtle, yet noticeable –something I like in a fragrance. Tru Fragrance description of it is as follows: “Opening notes of peach blossom and freesia combine with a driftwood accord. The orange blossom essence is expressed through a special Guimauve accord that blends warm marshmallow and gardenia notes. The base notes blend a unique sand accord, delicious almond milk and amber…”
I include this because it describes the fragrance so well and all the “notes” you can detect. I get the orange blossom for sure, and even the driftwood!
Definitely a fragrance to consider, but not think about it for too long as it is limited edition!!
