Personally, I love flowers, they have an ability to brighten up a space and can add some sort of a personal touch too; no matter what colour you like or what scent you prefer there is generally something out there for you.
This spring the floral trend has made a pretty big mark, from floral prints, dainty flower jewellery designs, wedding season bouquets and lastly, the floral scent.
However, as much I adore flowers and all that they encompass, I have never been a huge fan of floral scents until I found a very special and, personally a very universal scent.
When looking back at past habits, and perfume splurges, I’ve seemed to always lean toward scents that have wood/bergamot or oud notes in them, but rarely ever floral. From Dior’s Oud Isphahan, Armani’s Oud Royal and even Jo Malone’s velvet rose and oud I definitely managed to pick up a trend.
This spring, I decided I wanted to change things up a bit. I wanted to go a bit more florally, and sweet; but with saying that, I didn’t want something too fresh or too sweet. After spritzing around a few scents and browsing through many recommendations, I found a scent that I just kept going back for more of.
Giorgio Armani’s Privé collection, in the scent Pivoine Suzhou.
“Inspired by the beautiful gardens of Asia, this scent opens with notes of juicy mandarin, pink pepper and raspberry, with floral base notes of peony enhanced with essences of rose, amber, musk and patchouli.”
It is the perfect balance between a fresh and sweet scent and a musky oud one too.
I wear this scent every singe day and cannot get enough of it, but it it’s not just me who loves it. I have worn many different scents, but two in particular have been complimented time and time again, and one of the two is of course, my trusty Pivoine Suzhou. It’s a truly elegant scent that can be adored by almost anyone who gives it a chance.
