Organic Glam Citron Perfume


There is nothing quite so evocative as fragrance, it can transport you back to a certain time or place and it can have a powerful effect on our mood. I have been on the hunt for the perfect organic fragrance for some time and whilst I have found some lovely daytime fragrances I had yet to find the perfect more complex night time scent that could compete with more mainstream perfumes. That was until I tried this gorgeous scent from Organic Glam from the Organic Pharmacy. 

The Organic Pharmacy is well known for it's luxury high performance skincare and Organic Glam it's sister range has the most sophisticated range of organic make up I have ever seen, it's stunning to look at and the range has a timeless elegance to it that makes it incredibly appealing to a make up lover like me who uses organic products. I didn't realise there were fragrances in the line until my mother in law gave this to me as a gift, she is a fragrance lover and knowing that I love natural and organic products she chose this for me and I am incredibly happy she did. 

The perfume comes in a heavy art deco style glass bottle, beautifully packaged, these are real statement pieces the kind that you would want gracing your dressing table. I have Citron, but they come in five scents in total and I would love to add more to my collection. This is not your average citrus fragrance it is very sophisticated, one problem I have with organic perfumes is that sometimes they are not complex enough for my liking, this fragrance develops and changes over time and you can smell the different top, middle and base notes which I love. The lasting power is fabulous, again another complaint I have with natural perfumes at times, whenever I wear this I get comments asking me what it is, even hours after applying it. 

This combines Lemon, Bergamot and Morrocan Orange blossom and Ylang Ylang with base notes of patchouli and Neroli. It has a sweetness to it, followed by some warmer notes, I love how it evolves on the skin and keeps you guessing. The bottles are 100 mls in size which will last a long time, these are pricey at £120 each, but honestly they are absolutely worth it as you are getting a completely natural scent that is pure luxury. You can find the Organic Glam range here

  2. Sounds lovely! Do they do testers or sell in shops anywhere? I'm weary of buying perfumes without trying them first as they smell differently on everyone! x
