My Thoughts

Oh la la!! One sniff of this perfume and you are transported back to Summer; walks in the park, floral gardens, holiday homes and long, perfect sunny days . It has a feel of peace and romance, it feels like nothing could go wrong when you are wearing this perfume. It has heavy notes of sweet jasmine mixed with orange blossom, green notes of grass and a hint of sweetness with the white musk and perhaps the smallest touch of vanilla or tonka bean. It’s romantic, feminine, elegant and quietly opulent. It’s noticeable without being overpowering and the jasmine notes last for hours before wearing off and leaving the white musk to linger on your skin way into the night. It’s romantic Summer days full of life and sparkling sun, it’s exactly what I want to wear to help me forget about the cold, dark spell we are in the middle of. J’adore Gigi!

Jardins D’Écrivains Gigi is available from The Conran ShopJohn Lewis and House of Fraser.
