    l've gone for Un Matin d'Orage EDT, which was apparently inspired by a Japanese garden after the rain. lt's also one of my all-time favourite fragrances, & perfect for a damp spring day.

    l've gone for L'Ete en Douce today. l know it's supposed to be linden, but l still maintain that it mainly smells of lilac. ;)

    l don't tend to do subtle when it comes to perfume, but l've gone with L'Ete en Douce for today. The perfect soft & pretty scent for a spring day. :)
