Estée Lauder is having a moment. A serious moment, which has arguably come along with the introduction of their limited edition Bronze Goddess summer 2013 range. I have already spoken about their pure colour illuminating powder gelee (heat wave) in my haul post, but my new purchase wowed me even more than my first. Bronze Goddess skinscent is AMAZING. I know they do one of these every year, but I never paid it much attention. In fact, before this year, I had never really been drawn to the Estée Lauder stand that much, always opting for more 'fun' products from the likes of Mac and Benefit. But this collection has given me a new found respect for the brand, and this perfume has, I believe, started what I feel will be a long term love affair. As I have already said...
love at first sniff.
The coconut-y, vanilla-y, orange-y scent makes me so nostalgic for family holidays in Barbados and sun cream, beaches and tall, cool cocktails. It smells so exotic and lasts on the skin all day (something I consider important in perfumes...if I'm going to be paying the big bucks for a perfume, I expect it to LAST). It is so different from all my other perfumes, and I can see myself being loyal to it all summer long. The rest of the collection looks pretty exciting too, including a HUGE shimmery bronzer and a couple of pretty roll-on lip glosses. I don't think anything will live up to the Bronze Goddess perfume deliciousness however...it has set the bar super high. Seriously, do it. Shop the collection here.
Have any of you guys tried anything from the Bronze Goddess range?
