There's a bottle filled with the scent of summer, and that bottle is Clarins Eau des Jardins, part of the Clarins "Well Being" line.
This refreshing fragrance spray just evokes happiness, warm weather, flowers and yes - summertime.
If you use Clarins' treatment fragrance classic Eau de Dynamisante, Jardins is a softer, lighter and slightly more "rounded" scent (as opposed the more sharp citrus in Dynamisante).
Jardins has citrus and fruity notes with touches of beautifully blended florals.
The notes start out so clear and are filled with enough citrus and crisp fruity notes to completely awaken my senses at any time during the day. Then, with time, the scent becomes a bit more of a floral and finally the dry down is very woody, light and dry.
As for the bottle and outer packaging, here again we have the familiar Oval shape that their equally beautiful Eau Dynamisante is housed in. This time however, the color scheme and bottle colors correspond perfectly with the summer months and taking along for travel. Especially so is the packaging for the companion Eau de Jardin Uplifting Shower Gel (shown, left) which is another great way to wear this scent on especially hot/humid days when you might not even want the spay version.
However, the Eau des Jardins spray can be used throughout the day room temperature, or as I occasionally liked to use it - cold straight from the refrigerator on a especially hot day.
There's no alcohol, so it can also be used as a light facial mist and hair mist as well. Another bonus! Clarins formulated this summer fragrance to also be worn safely in the sun.
On my skin, the fragrance has the average lasting power of a "cologne-strength" fragrance, which in my case, was about 3 hours after a morning spritz. Then I usually refreshed it about 1-2 more times during the late afternoon/evening.
I also got a ton of compliments when I wore it, so it will be in my permanent summer scent rotation now! - RLB
