I decided on Eau des Merveilles for SnS today. I love the jus and the bottle equally.
First the bottle: It sits charmingly on a side (it has two) leaning slightly right or left. Or on it's back to display it's glassy, colored, roundness almost devoid of markings, looking like a beautiful marble or a drop of water. Sitting on it's front, the shining stars (orange bottle) or constellations (blue bottle) totally captivate me. The stars on the orange bottle also look like sparkling sand, nodding a reference to the beachy salt notes of the scent. Whether it's the orange or blue bottle, the jus inside looks and moves like water - not perfume, in keeping with "eau" des Merveilles. I could stare at the bottle all day.
The fragrance: Oranges, pine needles, salt-covered dry weeds and grasses on a sunbaked sandy dune is what this smells like to me. Also, there's the scent of the the sea spray when a wave crashes onto the shore. Throughout the day, the gentle fragrance wafts in out of my consciousness, making me smile when I'm reminded of it's presence. And I always think "Oh, that smells so, so good !!".
