Sweet yet well-rounded - that's the Éclat d’Arpège Gourmandise Lanvin (P2,998/ 50ml). It's invigorating upon first spray with Sicillian lemon and lavender smoothly scenting the skin, but then it develops into a sweet glow of green tea and peach blossom. It comes down to a musky cedarwood and amber base which I find stays with me all day.
The packaging is quite playful and girly, something that Lanvin (as a fashion house) is best best known for. Strings of illustrated candy surround a hazy lavender globe. A topper with a huge faux gem crown this limited edition bottle of delight. It's like a gaudy bauble from a princess's table, don't you think?
I highly recommend this to girls who like musky scents with a layered light saccharine top. It's a sophisticated fragrance - don't let the toy-like bottle fool you! This would be the kind of person who looks too frilly and empty-headed at first glance, but turns out to be smart and discerning once you get to know her. ;)
So there you go! Does this look like something you'd try?
Éclat d’Arpège Gourmandise Lanvin Fragrance is available in all major department stores (Landmark, Robinsons Department Stores, Rustans Department Stores & SM Department Stores) for PHP 2,998 50ml.
