Estēe Lauder- Bronze Goddess ($65/3.4oz)

Hello there!

Estēe Lauder Bronze Goddess is all the glory of summer in a bottle. I picked mine up from Bloomingdale’s towards the end of March. I’d never tried it before. As you can see I’m down to half a bottle so I figured this was a fine time as any to publicly profess my love. Bronze Goddess is a Eau Fraȋche(fresh water) which per my Internet research means that it contains 3% or less perfume oil. I don’t have a travel sized version of this yet so I don’t reapply it throughout the day. I’ve found that if I wear this to work people I meet within the first two hours will comment on how nice I smell. By lunch time there is just the slightest trace left very close to the skin.

I’ve listed the fragrance notes per the experts above. The coconut, the amber and the vanilla stand out the most to me with this one. When I wear it I’m transported to that perfect spot on a beautiful beach with just the right mix of shade, breeze and sun. It is such a delicious, warm and stimulating scent but it’s light enough to not be cloying or headache inducing.

From what I read online Bronze Goddess is usually only offered up to and through the summer months. If you live in an area where the temperatures are going to start to dip soon I think this would be a great fragrance to stock up on to remind you of warmer days.

Estēe Lauder has an impressive amount of companies in their portfolio. My first perfume experience with them was a birthday gift of Beautiful from my father as a teenager. I liked it back then but they seemed to have changed the formula so I stopped wearing it. Several years later I was gifted Aromatics Elixir(Clinique) which must work really well with my body chemistry because I’ve had people follow me on the street to ask me for the name of my perfume when I wear it.

Have you tried any of the fragrances from the Estēe Lauder brands? Tom Ford is under their umbrella. The next time you are in a department store check out the new Tom Ford private blend perfume Soleil Blanc then mosey on over to the Estēe Lauder counter and check out Bronze Goddess. Let me know what you think.

Have a great week!

      Hi there! Aromatics elixir is always a crowd favorite for me. My week was busy but that's usually the case. I hope everything is going well with the new camera.
