It feels like ages since I did a Fragrance Friday…and having had a quick look at when the last one was posted, it was in December last year! How did that happen!? To be honest, it’s mostly to do with the fact that I’ve got a few fragrances that I really like (and so tend to stick to) so I haven’t been inclined to add anything new to my collection, especially since I try to wear any fragrance I feature quite a bit so I can get a good idea of how it feels, but there are a couple of newbies that I wanted to share with you, starting with this little pretty from one of my all-time favourite skincare brands, Omorovicza Bagatelle de Gabrielle.
Omorovicza Bagatelle de Gabrielle, to be brutally honest, is a bit of a crowd-pleaser, which is apparently one of the worst things you can say about fragrances, but in my (humble) opinion, unless you’re a real fragrance connoisseur, finding a fragrance that isn’t especially complex but smells gorgeous is actually very okay. The Omorovicza Bagatelle de Gabrielle is extremely pretty and feminine with notes that work really well with the impending warmer weather. On first sniff you’re immediately struck with the citric Bergamot and white flowers, both of which are dominant notes that stay with you throughout. The top notes are Bergamot, Freesia and Lavender, Orange Flower, Muguet (lily apparently!) and Tuberose sit at the heart and Tonka Bean, Creamy Woods and Sandalwood give this fragrance a warm and woody base. If you’re looking to update your fragrance wardrobe for the warmer months without putting in too much thought then the Omorovicza Bagatelle de Gabrielle is a great choice, as even though it’s quite traditional, it’s still niche enough that you’re unlikely to end up in a room where you’re all wearing it, so it ticks both boxes.
