As i mentioned before, last month i had the pleasure to be invited to attend a Roger & Gallet event for the launch of the new L’Homme range and the new spring fragrance Fleur d’Osmanthus (see here).
At the heart of a Chinese garden of Eden… It all began with a daring bet. Today, it has become a promise. The promise of letting you savour the sensory experience of Happiness. In the confines of the Chinese valley of Guilin is a garden that looks and feels like Eden. Across its terraced hills spreads a very rare and precious plant, the Osmanthus.
I personally clicked immediately with the fragrance, firstly because of the beautiful story behind it and the promise of being an essence of happiness and secondly, i adore anything with orange blossom scent.
Strangely, the scent is not a eau de toilete or eau de perfume – its described as a fresh fragrant water.
With top notes of mandarin essential oil and orange zest, heart of osmanthus, grapefruit and neroli on a woody base of tonka bean and sandalwood, Fleur d’Osmanthus delivers a fresh, clean and uplifting scent.
The fragrance is perfect for someone who enjoys fruity, clean scents, but don’t want to smell to citrusy.
If you are a fan of layering fragrance, there is an amazing body range available:
Perfumed travel soap with a very cute holder 6 euro
Foaming Shower Honey 13,50 euro
Moisturising fragrant body lotion 13,50 euro
Fresh fragrant water 39,00 euro (100ml) and 17,00 euro (30ml)
N.B. All products were provided as part of a very generous goodie bag, i am not paid or
affiliated to Roger & Gallet. This was my honest opinion as always.
