Today I’m wearing Living Lalique, a beautiful powdery iris fragrance. I absolutely adore iris in fragrances like Guerlain’s Apres L’Ondee and Acqua di Parma’s Iris Nobile, but Living Lalique really works for me because it’s got a timeless elegance to it with a slightly modern twist. It includes nutmeg and also black pepper in the top notes which gives it a sparkling freshness and it dries down to this lovely warm comforting fragrance.
I do the traditional spraying my neck, decollete and wrist but I love it if I’ve got some fragrance on my collar, scarf or sleeve, so that throughout the day I catch a little hint of the fragrance and it gives me a moment of escapism.
