Sometimes there are things that catch my eye that don’t make the cut for a full review but are by no means less amazing products. These are featured as “Dollz Recommends”.
I’m a self-confessed perfume snob and it’s hard to convince me to look beyond my signature scents from Dior and Chanel. So when Kiehl’s Aromatic Blends Mist landed on the Dollz Beauty Desk, I didn’t expect too much from it. However since I love Kiehl’s (their new BB cream is a must-try), I decided to give it a try.
On first sniff I was absolutely blown away by the scent – just the right mix of sweet with a garnish of smoky makes this one sexy scent! And unlike most sprays or mists, this has notes that are activated over time with the heat of your body adding to the complexity. For the past month, my bottle of Miss Dior Cherie has gone untouched thanks to this and I can’t wait to collect the other three Aromatic Blends – Orange Flower & Lychee, Fig Leaf & Sage; and Nashi Blossom & Grapefruit (hint, hint, birthday present recommendation for me!). And since this is part of the Kiehl’s Aromatic Blends range, you can get matching body cleansers and body lotions as well.
