A Mother's Day Journey - Review and Giveaway
Sunday May 11th is Mother's Day. If you are looking for ideas look no further!
I have worked with Harvey Prince since their first fragrance, Ageless, was released. You can see my original review here: Ageless. Harvey Prince is not only one of my favorite companies to work with (wonderful people!) - they are also an organization that creates truly unique and innovative products. This is not an easy accomplishment when you think of how saturated the market is for bath and body products. Find out more about the company HERE.
I regularly use Fling and Ageless and love both!
Recently I was given a bottle of a new scent - Journey.
Out of all of the Harvey Prince Fragrances I have tried, I have to say that Journey is the most feminine. It is a beautiful, soft scent but it is not weak nor is it cloying. With a marriage of a variety of unique floral notes and earthy undertones, this scent makes a subtle but lasting impression.
I normally do not like scents with floral base notes - I usually prefer a fruity or earthy scent with underlying floral notes. This scent is definitely primarily floral though. What is really interesting is that I and all three of my girls loved it. We all have completely different tastes and it is extremely rare that we all like the same thing.
I could not put my finger on what Journey reminded me of but I finally realized what it was. When I was very little I spent a lot of time at my grandmother's house. She used to let me go through her jewelry, makeup and perfumes - ts scent is very similar to one that she used to wear. If I had to describe it I would say a very feminine and sophisticated, warm, sweet floral.
When first sprayed, Journey gives off a Gardenia like scent. As the top note dissapated, the scent was slightly powdery and sweet. Slowly the other scents emerge creating a wonderful floral scent.
Notes: Indonesian Clove Bud, Australian Sandalwood, Moroccan Rose, French Bergamot, Indian Tuberose, Japanese Orange Flower, Lebanese Cedarwood, Turkish Cyclamen, South African Freesia Style
