When I first tried Biotherm Eau Vitaminee I wrote it off as being a soliflore that smelled like Tropicana Orange Juice. However, coming back to it today, I can see that I didn’t do it justice. Eau Vitaminee is how I imagine I would smell if I was just leaving a very expensive spa (imagination will have to do for now!)
I would bracket this with Askett and English Essential, Clarins Eau des Jardins and Jo Loves Green Orange and Coriander. Eau Vitaminee is a delightful blend of citrus: Oranges and Lemons make for an effervescent opening. The notes smell fresh, crisp and authentic. The middle note is Jasmine ( although I wouldn’t have said so) and the base notes are Freesia and Musk (which I would say is an accurate description).
This may have been better placed in Summer, but I think we need a spritz of something fresh in winter when central heating and rib sticking food can make us feel in need of something light, and a reminder of sunny days and sparkling, ice cold drinks is always welcome as the nights grow dark.
The price is nice at around £30 for 50ml, but even better on eBay.
