No shortage of good times over here at Belle Belle. But I am paying for it with a very mild case of the sniffles today. Doesn’t help that we had almost a week below freezing and then it was in the 70s yesterday. Holy temperature swings. I even turned on my AC last night. I will never understand this Oklahoma weather. Either way, to celebrate spring-like conditions, I am reaching for kate spade new york ‘live colorfully’ parfum and slathering on the body cream. Talk about an instant cheer up!
‘live colorfully’ is a more floral version of my signature NEST Fragrances Midnight Fleur, but still has that amber/musk/vanilla that I crave. The florals and citrus add brightness that transforms on my skin. On me, it dries down to something more gourmand but I still get the occasional burst of lily.
- Top notes: mandarin, pink water lily and star anise
- Mid notes: tiara flower, golden gardenia and coconut water
- Base notes: amber, radiant musks and Tahitian vanilla
As can be expected from Kate Spade, the packaging is hefty and exquisitely designed. I love the fresh and vibrant burst of colors which looks so cheerful on my bedside table. And the square, architectural body cream is sophisticated fun. Nordstrom exclusive. Shop the post:
