Rounding out our Irish month, I saved the best for last!
Meet my new perfume, and soon to be yours too:
Did you know there was a line of Irish perfume, made in Ireland (in County Wicklow in fact)?
Now it only stands to reason,when you think about ti, but how many of us do?
So when I read about it on a beauty site, I couldn't wait to try it!
Inis Energy of the Sea is a sparkling, clean, unisex scent that captures the coolness, clarity and purity of the ocean. Inis is the Irish word for 'island', and the fragrance was inspired by Roundstone Beach, on the wild western coast of Ireland. A truly unique, discovery fragrance, people say the scent of Inis makes them feel close to the sea - no matter where they are.
I have to agree- it truly takes you back to the beach and Summer. Miss Grace agrees- she smelled it without me telling her what it was, and the first thing she said was "ooo the beach". Go figure! Even the top of the bottle is made to resemble a shell, and the frosted bottle to remind you of sea glass!
Inis Energy of the Sea has top notes of lemon,bergamot, and neroli to bring the freshness of sunshine on your face, while heart notes of lily of the valley and geranium (one of my favorite flowers!), are delicate and fresh like a soft summer breeze on your body. Accompanying base notes of sandalwood oakmoss, nutmeg, musk and clove, give an earthy warmth, like sand between your toes.
I usually wear or Bulgari Mon Jasmine Noir or Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue, during Spring and Summer, so this Inis Energy of the Sea scent was very similar, in the clean scent area, and instantly appealing to me.. Appealing to the kid too, as she keeps asking "Can I have it?" That of course is a resounding NO, as I have found my new Spring/Summer perfume!
The scent is very subtle, as it is an eau de toilette.I would recommend getting one of the additional Inis Energy of the Sea products like the lotion, bath gel or mineral soap, to help build up the product on you. For me it seems to last really well for about 6-7 hours, before becoming faint. I need to get the roll on, so i can reapply when I'm out all day, but otherwise I am very pleased with how it mingles with my natural scent. As you know, perfume can smell one way in the store, but very differently on YOU after an hour or two. Which is why it is recommended that you spray some ON your wrist and wait an hour to determine if it is really for you. With this Inis perfume, I had people stopping and asking me what I was wearing, it was so appealing! Friends asked what my new perfume was, and said it was defnitely "me". Woo hoo- success!
The ocean is a place of wonder and magic, its energy and beauty is the inspiration for Inis the Energy of the Sea. Fragrances of Ireland never tests their products on animals and has been the core funder of the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group , which is dedicated to the protection, conservation and better understanding of whales and dolphins in Irish waters and across the world. Their work helps ensure that the seas of the world will be a source of delight and joy for generations to come. So you know when you buy one of the fragrances from their line, you are giving back!
