Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Nectarine Blossom

nectarineThe Elizabeth Arden Green Tea range always makes it onto my list of good value favourites. Never overpriced, always prettily packaged and universally pleasing: I’ve yet to find one I don’t like. Today (and a few months ago in Duty Free), I tried Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Nectarine Blossom.

As you may imagine, it opens with nectarines. Now, I used to dodge anything peachy in scent, but I’ve come round and I fully embrace it. After all, you can’t have Lanvin Arpege without peaches, can you? In fact, the notes here are nectarines and nectarine blossom, which makes this peachy with a hint of light florals. Thankfully, we’re not talking sticky peaches, but that light fruit aroma that smells so refreshing and tempting when you inhale the rosy skin of a ripe one.  There is of course, a nod to green tea and a spritz of bergamot to keep it zingy. The base is musk, but I didn’t discern any. You might though.

This is a playful, uplifting scent that will be a hit as soon as we have two sunny days in a row (Come on, British Summer- don’t give up!). It passes the office/commuter test by not being sickly or too sweet or too heavy.  The only teeny drawback I find with this range is that longevity isn’t brilliant. I’m getting about three hours from this, which takes you to lunchtime and provides another excuse for a top up.  At only £15 for 100ml, you can afford to be generous with your re-spritzing. Besides, I like putting perfume on. It’s refreshing and makes me feel good. Top ups are good.
