Hey folks. Need to smell good? Like roses? I have a perfume recommendation for you – Cartier’s Goutee de Rose perfume. This is a light and airy scent that will not overpower you with it’s rosiness. Even though this is a rose scent, it is unique, fresh and light. If this perfume was a person it would Audrey Hepburn (and who doesn’t love Audrey Hepburn).
I don’t think that I have ever smelled anything like Goutee de Rose before. There’s a little bit of rose combined with a little bit of lemon and sugar. I looked up the translation of Goutee, as I was not familiar with the word. Translated from French – it means tasting. This perfume is a “tasting of rose”. A perfect description of this perfume, sometimes the French get it so right, you know?
I purchased Cartier Goutee De Rose through Birchbox’s Scent Sampler which for $25, sends you five perfume samples and a voucher $30 towards purchasing your favorite of the five. I had purchased this sampler with the full intention of buying Hemult Lang’s Curion, which I love and had been eyeing for some time. Instead I fell in love with Cartier’s Goutee de Rose perfume and used the voucher for this fragrance instead. These types of sample/voucher boxes make great gifts, as there is usually something for everyone and scent is so personal.
Anyway, if you cross my path and I smell delicious, now you know what I am wearing this summer.
What are your favorite scents? Have you had any experiences with scent samplers?
