Don’t you just love how refreshing Spring is? I’m very much looking forward to lighter meals, less bulky clothing and footwear – and a new fragrance to suit! Just released is the new spring fragrance for women, Green Tea Yuzu Fragrance by Elizabeth Arden.
Green Tea Yuzu is the newest addition to the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea family of fragrances. Instead of the usual green tea blends with florals, it’s time for citrus to shine!
Originating in East Asia, Yuzu has been used for thousands of years in traditional bathing rituals to celebrate health and wealth the New Year. The inviting aroma of floating Yuzu fruits fills the cold winter air with a sense of calm and well-being that energizes and fortifies the body.
With the arrival of Spring, the Yuzu plant celebrates the new season with an explosion of white blossoms that infuse the air with its fresh and alluring scent. A hybrid between the mandarin and the Ichang Papeda, Yuzu blends perfectly with the crisp refinement of the original Green Tea, adding a touch of refreshing energy to this new fragrance.
“There’s an uplifting and refreshing beauty and elemental purity that the Yuzu fruit can bring to the senses, whether you experience it in tea, cuisine or even for therapeutic purposes. I was inspired by these unique properties, and wanted to pair them with notes that I felt reflected the lively and lighthearted personality of the fragrance wearer.” Givaudan Perfumer, Rodrigo Flores-Roux
I’d have to wholeheartedly agree that Green Tea Yuzu is very uplifting, like a surge of freshness. It’s like my favourite body wash and mist – one that makes people remark on your nice fresh scent without being a strong noticeable perfume. It’s the perfect change to welcome spring!
