Mood Scent 4 Joyful Spritzing!
It is Mood Scent 4 time again! Where Portia (now on A Bottled Rose), Sam (I Scent You A Day) Megan (Megan In Sainte Maxime) and I write about a joined subject each month linking fragrance to mood or occasion. This time we picked joyful spritzing!
For me joyful spritzing means, perfumes which always cheer me up. I chose 4 fragrances starting with a perfume full of joy, April Aromatics Ray of Light.
April Aromatics Ray Of Light
Notes: Lime, Lemon, Pink Grapefruit, Orange, Bergamot, Galbanum, Mint, Vetiver, Tobacco. Perfumer: Tanja Bochnig Year: 2014
Bright crisp green lime and sweet vibrant yellow lemon with bitter green bits reminiscent of the leaves of the lemon tree make this a very uplifting fragrance for those days when you need some encouragement. Ray of Light is an all natural cheerful fragrance made by Berlin based perfumer Tanja Bochnig.
Wearing Ray of Light is like hearing a dear friend whispering cheerful words in your ear on those days you need help to get things done or get in a much better mood. Pure joy in a perfume bottle.
L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse aux Papillons Eau de Toilette
Notes: Linden Blossom, Lemon Tree Blossom (Petit Grain Lemon), Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Tuberose Perfumer: Anne Flipo Year: 1999
This cheerful innocent floral bouquet of white orange, jasmine and tuberose blossoms with green and coconut facets never fails to lift my spirits. It is one of my favorite uplifting fragrances and I gladly use this Eau de Toilette on grey days to get me in a cheerful light mood again. La Chasse Aux Papillons means chasing butterflies in French, a joyful exquisite and suited name for this perfume.
Parfums Dusita Fleur de Lalita
Notes: Rose de mai, magnolia, jasmine, white lily, galbanum, ylang-ylang, ambrette, vanilla, sandalwood, tonka bean and ambergris Perfumer: Pissara Umavijani Year: 2018
Fleur de Lalita makes you feel like a sweet teenage girl wearing a fluffy soft light pink short coat, tutu and sparkly tiara, giggling, joyous and feeling like a little princess. It is an absolutely stunning fragrance and a joy to wear, full of creamy tropical flowers, a light touch of coconut and warming smooth sandalwood. This fragrance had been on my wishlist for several years as it was an instant love and after using up several samples I finally bought a full bottle (my only one in this period!) during our “lockdown”.
Miller Harris Lumière Doree
Notes: Bergamot, Petit Grain Bigaradier, Orange Bigarade, Neroli Bigarade, Sambac Jasmine, Cashmere wood, Vetiver, Amber accord, White Musks. Perfumer: Mathieu Nardin Year: 2016
This cologne style neroli filled fragrance brightens the day with its Mediterranean flowers of jasmine, bitter orange and green bergamot citrus fruit. Lumière Doree transports me to joyful Spanish avenida’s full of small bitter orange trees filling up the air with their sunny luminous floral aroma and children loudly playing while smelling of Neroli cologne and clean soap.

Hi Esperanza – beautiful choices! isn’t it funny how often neroli pops up in happy fragrances? It’s been on my skin in one form or another throughout the whole of lockdown. La Chasse au Papillons is one of those fragrances i didn’t take to first time around but I just love Anne Flipo’s work and once I fell in love with neroli, the whole jigsaw fell into place. Your photos, are as always, as joyful as your fragrances! Such a pleasure to work with you. Sam xx

It is funny, loved your choice of the perfume doctor, a Neroli fragrance as well. Thank you Sam, it is a pleasure to write with you as well. I have worn La Chasse in many occasions, had the same with what you describe with tuberose in certain fragrances. Some have to grow on us, I suppose.

WOW! Miller Harris Lumière Doree sounds perfect for a uplifting spritz. How is the longevity? I don’t need it to last all day but sometimes cologne styles are gone pithing the hour.
Also so happy to see La Chasse aux Papillons get a gong. How could I forget it, such a perfect sunlit day ion a bottle.

It is an uplifting fragrance longevity isn’t great though as you already guessed. La Chasse is a sunlit day in a bottle! Very happy fragrance.

Hi Esperanza. Gorgeous photos of your choices. I love Ray of Light and La Chasse too. Anything Dusita is always worth smelling and I haven’t tried the Miller Harris but it sounds great too. xxx
