Long time fans of the classic prodigious oil (or Huile Prodigieuse to be more fancy and French) from Nuxe will be very happy to hear that the brand are releasing a perfume based on the hugely successful aforementioned oil.
I'm a bit of a perfume nut so when I first smelt this at the launch, I picked up on orange blossom (one of the top notes, which adds a lovely floral hit) and vanilla and coconut (warming base notes); for me the perfect combination of Summery scents. What I didn't pick up on were the top notes of bergamot, mandarin and heart notes of roses, gardenias and magnolias. Yes, I will be liberally applying this to myself at the first sight of a daffodil and I don't care if that means it's only Spring, I need some summery joy in my life now, dammit!
Let's also just take a second to appreciate that packaging, shall we? An elegant glass bottle with warm ambers and golds adding to that feeling of being on a sandy beach somewhere, instead of being in Dublin, commenting on the misery that is the current storms hitting the country.
Yes, perfume is that powerful.
You can buy Nuxe Prodigieux Le Parfum for €48.60 (for 50mls) in Arnotts from the 13th of February (just in time for Valentine's Day!) and in pharmacies nationwide from the 3rd of March.
