NATEEVA is always a home run.
I have tried all of NATEEVA’s scents, except the newer ones I still have coming to me (St. Thomas and Dominican Republic) and they are ALWAYS a home run. I honestly don’t expect any less from the two other ones I have to try yet either; for $125 a bottle they better be.
They are exactly as the names suggest; those destinations in a bottle. Aruba is a very beautiful floral-beachy scent. The Neroli, Yellow Freesia and Musk make for a very beautiful beachy light but sweet floral. When it dries down, you can smell the amber finally start to peek through, but only slightly.
And I get a bang out of all these reviews that say the scents never last long. If you want to get the scent to last longer spray it in your hair or on your clothes. Scents will NEVER last long on the skin. Doesn’t matter if it’s a parfum, toilette, or oil. The skin is not meant to retain anything long on it.
