To me there is nothing more feminine and romantic than a nice - warm perfume that guide one's emotions into dreamland. I know it's been quite a while since I've reviewed a fragrance on my blog but these tiny bottles of heaven are very expensive and I don't often splurge on such luxuries. However, the beauty I am presenting to you in this post was only 15$ (on sale for 50% off at the moment) and it has become my go-to scent for this summer (and I am sure I will wear it in fall and winter - when I need to warm my soul a bit). I'm not exaggerating when I say that this fragrance warms up your heart/soul. Monoi by Yves Rocher has got to be the most romantic - delicate and sensual perfume in my collection. It reminds me of Huile Prodigieuse by Nuxe and I often wear the oil as a base before spritzing this perfume on (the notes are quite similar if not almost exactly the same).
I applaud Yves Rocher for truly knocking this one out of the ballpark because you honestly couldn't ask for a more feminine and simply perfect scent for the season. The top notes of this perfume are : Coconut, Tiare flower (a white flower), vanilla; and from my perspective there are some undertones of honey, argan oil (or some form of oil) and orange blossom. I mean - come on. These words don't to it justice. I swear if you close your eyes and smell this you can picture beautiful white flowers gently blossoming on a tropical beach whiles the sun sets. Yeah - that. I find this perfume to be insanely exotic - tropical - sensual - yet subtle enough to wear day or night.
Actually the scent starts off strong for a few seconds - then gently fades as minutes pass and after about 1 hour - only those really close to you can sense it. I want to point out that this perfume does not smell artificial or chemical in any way shape of form. The way it blends with your skin and sweat (ew I know but hey you sweat in summer no?) it produces a very soft - natural and feminine odor. I - am - addicted. The only downside is that the scent fades away pretty fast - after 3-4 hours it is completely gone. But if you put an oil base on your skin first it will boost the longevity quite nicely. So overall, what a wonderful perfume (well actually - Eau de Toilette but perfume sounds better to me). If you pass by an Yves Rocher and they still have this in stock - go check it out. You will not be disappointed. :)Thank you for reading - Don't forget to follow me if you like what you see! xox
