Lately, I’ve been thinking about the beach quite a bit. I have yet to get there this summer but around this time last year I had the most amazing vacation in Bermuda where I visited arguably one of the best beaches in the world, Horse Shoe Beach. Memories of the pink sand, hot sun, cool breeze and blue water were enough to make me envious of my girl TDC who just returned from there. That got me thinking of the time I played hookie while in college. I went with the flow, went with the young lady that coaxed me into going and I didn’t have a care in the world. I so lived in the now. The air was crisp, it was clean, and most of all it was as much sweet as it was salty. How I wish I could do that now and not worry about my crackberry. Memories such as these were recalled as I was testing the recently launched fragrance by L’Artisan, Cote d’Amour.
Developed by Celine Ellena, Cote d’Amour is a 100% organic eau de tiolette which carries the Cosmebio label, certified by Ecocert. Its inspiration was a trip along the Loire Atlantique coast where the senses are delighted by a soft caress of sea air and sand, of scents of golden yellow gorse, heather and broom and a sensual mixture of soft resin and floatwood.
Of all the beachy/aquatic scents I’ve come across, this one possesses a salty note that really brings it to life and for that reason sets it a part from the rest of the pack. In about two weeks, I’m escaping for a little vacation and have been thinking what fragrance should I take with me. My decision has been made.
Cote d’Amour is available in an 8.4 oz Eau de Toilette for $155. Also available is a Natural Nourishing Cream, 1.7 oz for $50 and a Natural Soothing Soap, 3.4 oz for $$35.
