Perfume of the Day: Oriens by Van Cleef & Arpels
Oriens woman dreams of magic and mistery, of conquering the unknown, of embarking on a journey where the distance swallows everything. She embarks on a journey to discover who she truly is without the world, her bare soul…The only thing that burdens her are the roads not taken!
She loves submerging in other worlds, mixing sour and sweet, ice cream and sour cherries, the snortling sound when laughs too hard, an expected act of kindness, seeing snails snoozing off on thin grass leaves…
She dislikes emotional flexibility, the sudden attack of the cookie monster, perpetual laments, and indifference!
She imagines herself as a ladybug taking a nap on a raspberry leaf or a pinky finger taking a dip into a bowl of chocolate! Now that is how wonderful life is! It’s not about seeking pleasure in the smallest of things, but rather acknowledging the greatness of the things that make her happy!
The nose behind this fragrance, Bernard Ellena said that the perfume conjures the magic and mystery that stretched on the exotic silk route to Asia, so to me, this perfume is as magical as Tolkien’s stories. All you need to do is put on your magical glasses and try to capture the magic released in the air!
Van Cleef & Arpels’s Oriens perfume is subtly sweet, uncloying alchemic tonic of gourmand notes making love to sun-kissed florals, unique love story with a happy ending!
This perfume will comfort you in winter, excite you in springtime, relax you in summer and seduce you in fall!
Notes: mandarin orange, black currant, raspberry, jasmine, white flowers, patchouli, praline, amber and vanilla.
