I recently ordered a set of minis from Yves Rocher and included in that set was a cute little 5ml bottle of Yves Rocher Secrets D’Essences Neroli. The Secrets D’Essences is a superb range and frankly, you can’t go wrong with any of them. The standard is higher than the low price would lead you to expect.
Sadly, I didn’t get on with Secrets D’Essences Neroli as I simply don’t like Neroli on its own. I’m not saying this is a bad perfume, but it’s not for me. I prefer my Neroli in a choir, rather than doing a solo. If you are a Neroli fan, you have found a real treasure here and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
So why am I not taken with it? Well, there is the faintest hint of orange jelly in the background, then some white petals desperately trying to get in the door ( and I really want to let them in, but they are too weak to barge in). Then there is the honey, which I always, without exception, find too sickly in perfume.
So if oranges, honey and a flutter of white petals is your thing, then this is a safe bet. If you like your Neroli next to sturdier ingredients, then this is probably not for you. Don’t forget about layering though- this would be good with musk or a green scent over the top. If you’re on the fence, you can buy a purse spray on the Yves Rocher website for just 7GBP.
