Pacifica perfumes was not a fragrance line that I've ever paid to much attention to until the other day when my husband and I were shopping at our local Whole Foods in University Heights. Spring has sprung here in Cleveland and this is the time of year that I find myself craving single floral scents probably because that's what's in the air! So I stopped by the pretty display of Pacifica products and what caught my eye immediately was the French lilac perfume. I adore lilacs, probably because they are such a romantic old fashioned flower and they remind me of my mother who was very fond of them because of their blowsy, fragrantly happy natures! She had a beautiful crystal vase that had been her mothers and is now mine that was cut crystal, narrow at the bottom and tall but wide on top just like a parasol. Lilacs and old fashioned snowballs and roses look just beautiful arranged in this vase and for me seeing her create her beautiful bouquets are very personal childhood memories that I treasure.
So , upon seeing the little tester of perfume I was immediately overcome with some of those memories and I sprayed myself with a bit of it. I found Pacifica's French Lilac to be absolutely lovely, with just the right touch of heliotrope and nectarine, ylang ylang and oakmoss, enough to convey the memory of such a sweet and special flower. What I wasn't prepared for however was my husbands response. He absolutely loved it and bought it for me on the spot . He said that it was literally one of the most romantic fragrances that he'd ever smelled and I could tell that it brought back memories of his own. Whatever the reason, I have been wearing it ever since. It's green enough of a perfume to be a little bit cool if necessary, but Pacifica's French Lilac has a very passionate heart. Like all of their other fragrances, it comes in a solid perfume which is very nice, as well candles, body butter and a finely milled soap. I encourage you to try it. French Lilac is a very sexy fragrance to enjoy this spring and so far I've worn it with cotton, lace and velvet. Try spraying a bit of it between your sheets for a very romantic evening experience.
