Parfum Du Jour | Le Soft Perfume Parisian Rhapsody
It’s no secret that I’m completely obsessed with Le Soft Perfume’s Striptease Flowers or any other kind of solid fragrance for that matter, and that obsession has been further fueled by the recent launch of their Parisian Rhapsody* fragrance which the brand describes as ‘des notes comme des libellules amoureuse dans le ciel de Paris‘. If my basic French serves me well I believe Parisian Rhapsody is intended to be reminiscent of loved up dragonflies gliding through the skies of Paris; now I’m not entirely sure of that, but what I am sure of is that if you were to bottle up a balmy Parisian day by the Pont de l’Archevêché you’d have Parisian Rhapsody.
Top and middle notes of wild orange, red berries, rose, jasmine and nutmeg combine with heart notes coumarin, vanilla and musk – it’s very sweet and floral, and when I first swiped Parisian Rhapsody on my wrists I was immediately reminded of how similar it is to the Bali James Maiko Body Oil*. I think it’s a great idea to play around with a fragrance by either pairing it up another or slathering on a moisturiser with similar notes, and the Maiko Body Oil really heightens up the sweeter notes in Parisian Rhapsody, only the body oil gives it a certain figginess.
