Carolina Herrera Garden Party

I admit that I love Carolina Herrera. I love her personal style and the things that she designs. I see her picture from events and I just want to grow up to be her. She looks calm, collected and fashionable without being a fashion victim at all times. All of this is very good. So, I was excited to try out her new summer fragrance. If I could have just a little bit of her aura by wearing this fragrance I would be bathing in it every morning.

Top Notes: Grapefruit, Pineapple, Lemon
Middle Notes: Jasmine, Rose Petals
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Cedar

Glancing at those notes, you would think that this is a very fruity, bright summer fragrance. Really, it's not. It's primarily a woodsy scent on me, mostly cedar with a light note of pineapple when I first apply. The affect is fresh but grounded, not something a young teen would wear. With the dry down the Jasmine does start to sneak out a little bit, adding a small floral leaning but still keeping Cedar in the forefront. Slowly the Rose Petals come a little bit more into the scent, adding a little more depth with the floral scents, though the Cedar is definitely still present, making this very much a woodsy floral.

Overall I found this to be very sophisticated, and not what I expected a "Summer" fragrance to be. Definitely one I'll be reaching for all year round.

Available exclusively at Nordstrom

  4. Isn't cedar more of a scent designed for men's products?

    I would agree that most young women do not want to smell like wood.
