WIMH: Eau de Orla

I received a sample of the new eau de parfum from designer Orla Kiely through my membership with Whats In My Handbag (click the link for free membership!).

The self titled perfume was created in a perfume house in Paris and is inspired by nature.

The actual packaging of the full sized perfume is a glass bottle in the shape of the flower head you see on the drawing above. The lid is orange like the petals of the flower and overall the bottle is unique and would look cute sitting on a dresser.

The scent itself has light floral notes and is described as having "natural extracts of rose geranium and bergamot, subtly balanced with fresh fig and a hint of chocolate". Generally I'm not so keen on floral scents as I find them to be too strong and musky. I prefer fresh, fruity fragrances, however this perfume is absolutely beautiful. It has a youthful, fresh, pleasant sweet smell and is perfect worn in the summer or colder months. This is definitely on my list to buy as my next perfume!
