Luckily I came across another discontinued beauty from them called Miel and Citron Pailletee shimmering on ebay and managed to get my mitts on this one.
I cannot capture the beauty of this bottle in pictures. This is happiness in a bottle. It has such an airy, sunny outdoorsy quality to it. Reminds me of sunny days and honey hives. Bees buzzing through blossoms gathering their sweet nectar. Miel Citron Pailletee has notes of Lemon, cut grass, Freesia,honey, orange blossom, Apricot and Vanilla.
I know honey and lemon makes one think of cold remedy teas but this is gorgeous.The lemon is very fresh in the opening and cuts through the honey beautifully.Honey and apricot notes takes over right away.The honey is very clean, light and natural. More of the white honey variety than the rich golden one.White chewy honey fresh from the hive with wax still sticking to it. Freesia doesn't make an appearance on my skin at all. Just lemon and honey and maybe a wee bit of vanilla mixed in with some natural green notes. It's not a complicated fragrance with mish mash of too many notes trying to take up the stage. It lasts a long time for an EDT and the drydown is honey ambrosia with a slight waxy feel to it. Simply gorgeous.
It comes in a beautiful honeycomb textured bottle with very fine shimmering mica pieces. Not at all glittery and doesn't leave your skin with that disco ball effect. I wish there was such a thing as scratch and sniff computer screens so I could share this with you. Can't stop smelling myself :)
Have you tried perfumes from L'Occitane en Provence? Do you think they should relaunch their honey line?
