Kiehl's Orange Flower & Lychee Fragrance

Kiehl's new Aromatic Blends Collection features four intoxicating fragrances designed to take you on a sensorial trip around the world. The perfumes in each trio of fragrance, body cleanser and body lotion have been inspired by a rich variety of destinations. 

The Fig Leaf & Sage fragrance echoes spring in Provence - a combination of the scent of the air beneath the fig tress and the delicate aromas of the herbs in the surrounding fields. Vanilla & Cedarwood is a delicate balance of ying and yang - the feminine, smooth, smoky and slightly sweet vanilla sourced in Uganda and the masculine, raw and earthy Virginia cedarwood. Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit uses a unique extraction technology to draw out the delicate scent of nashi blossom, mixed with ginger and Brazilian pink grapefruit.

My favourite of the four fragrances is the deliciously sweet, creamy, yet slightly citrus Orange Flower & Lychee fragrance. I am not normally a fan of orange blossom, but the sweet rose like lychee and honey notes blend beautifully with the bitter orange.
 
"The Orange Flower & Lychee recreates the atmosphere of late afternoon in a Moroccan garden. The orange tree absorbs the warmth of the sun during the day then exudes its strong distinctive essences as the air begins to cool in the evening, while the lychee lends a soft and sweet aroma reminiscent of the roses growing nearby."
It's always great to layer products to ensure your favourite fragrance lasts all day, so I think it's fantastic that Kiehl's has launched these trios. All the products smell amazing, as well as being kind to skin and containing only the best and most effective ingredients. I particularly like the body lotion as it is light enough to apply in hotter weather or in the morning as it absorbs quickly and feels soothing. They also contain botanical oils, butters and glycerin to ensure skin is nourished without silicones and is well hydrated for 24 hours.

Kiehl's Aromatic Blends launch in Kiehl's stores from September. The fragrances will retail at £48 for 100ml, with the mist £26 for 30ml. Skin softening body lotion will retail at £24 for 250ml and body cleanser £19 for 250ml.

Are you looking forward to Kiehl's new range of fragrances? Which scent appeals to you most? Do you like to layer scented products? xxx
