Flash back five or so years ago to my first encounter with Esteé Lauder’s Bronze Goddess – I spritzed a little on myself and was fast on a mission to rub the scent off. Given the fact that two of the key notes are vanilla and coconut this didn’t really make sense as I love any kind of vanilla scent. I felt this way every summer when so many people around me were going nuts for the stuff until this year – summer hit and I’m all over the scent. I can smell people wearing it a mile off and it got to the stage where I had a spendy moment in duty free and had to get a bottle of my own.
In terms of notes, it’s a pretty busy scent in comparison to the other fragrances in my collection, but given the notes that now heavily dominate my current fragrance family, it’s no wonder this scent caught my nose. I’m never very good at the descriptive side of scents, so I’ve whipped a little something off the Esteé Lauder website to help make things a little more accurate…
Amber, Coconut Milk, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Vetiver, Myrrh
Juicy Mandarin, Sicilian Bergamont, Lemon, Pulpy Orange
Tiare Flower, Jasmine, Magnolia Petals, Orange Flower Buds, Lavender”
Et voila! Are you a B.G lover? Whether the answer is yes or no I think we should also just take this final moment for packaging appriciation – ombre yellow to pink with a gold lid – definitely the best looking bottle yet!
