Back in March, I joined the #30plusblogs Twitter chat in conjunction with Miller Harris (#mh30plus) to talk about fragrance memories and how certain scents can remind you of a beautiful afternoon or an amazing evening (or smelling Lynx makes you think of being 15 and all the boys spraying cans of it on in the hopes of attracting a mate).
They were also running a competition to win one of Miller Harris’ new fragrances; Citron, and I was one of the lucky ones to win a bottle. I was really excited as fruit is one of my favourite top notes; I did a post last year about my favourite scents which you can read about here. (*Warning* This was one of my first posts and the photography is absolutely shocking – I might have to update that soon!)
Citron came in this beautiful bottle with flowers etched on the back.
It has top notes of Sicilian lemon, Seville orange and Jamaican lime. To me the top notes smell like a holiday, wandering through cobbled streets while the sun is beating down on you and a cool breeze ripples through your hair. The mid notes include marjoram, mint and basil which feels cool and refreshing. The base notes of cardamon and cedarwood give it a slightly masculine feel and to me, it smells slightly spicy and dangerous.
For me, the scent is a lot deeper and woodier than I’d normally go for but I’m definitely going to give it another go because the lemon top note is just exquisite.
