Citron de Vigne


Last week was my best friend’s birthday, and I bought her, among other things, this rollerball perfume from Fresh. I tried on the tester in Sephora and fell in love; the scent is ‘Citron de Vigne’ and it’s the most delicious summer fragrance. It’s “inspired¬†by Reims, France’s Champagne region” and is a mix of “Neroli, Bitter Orange, Pink Grapefruit, Pinot Noir Accord, Jasmine Tea Leaves, Lemongrass, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Amber.” That’s a lot of smells, I know, but I was hooked. I couldn’t stop talking about it.

Jamal came home on Friday afternoon with two surprises. The first was a tube of the perfume for me (!! this is a bad precedent, Jamal. I will start talking everything to death until you buy it for me) and the second was a packet of paper. Seemingly not exciting, until I read it; Jamal had officially put a deposit on a wedding venue. I’ll share more details tomorrow, but it was the place I had my heart set on.

This post has no point other than I wanted to brag a little bit about how good I smell now and how lucky I am to have a Jamal in my life. Happy Wednesday!

  1. I got a sample of their grapefruit “flavor,” and didn’t LOVE it. We’re in like, I think, but this? This sounds heavenly. Might be just the treat I’ll need to give myself when I’m moping around after getting home from our trip.

    Yay! Weddings! I can NOT wait to hear all the details. Annie’s wedding made me want to get married all over again, so you have some big shoes to fill. I have no doubt that you’re going to blow my socks off. And then I *will* have to get married again. Or at least have a slamming 20th anniversary party. ;)

  2. that perfume! i want. i love every scent they mixed into that little vile. it sounds perfect and now i have a (most likely unrelenting) desire to go sniff something heavenly. yep, i am going to have to go smell some perfume here in a minute.

    girl, i can’t wait to hear some wedding details. that jamal boy howdy. keeper.


  3. Brag-away :-)
    Roller ball scents aren’t so big here in the UK, unless I’ve totally missed that trend.
    I’m waiting for all the details, tomorrow can’t come quick enough.
    Happy Wednesday x

  4. I will wear any perfume with jasmine in it! There is actually a new one that I recently tried with jasmine and citrus just like this and i liked it much more than I anticipated! My favorite is a mix of jasmine, lily of the valley, and musk.

    And I am so happy that you have a wedding venue! As someone who works at a venue – I am jumping over here miles away! I cannot wait to hear more. I hope they have some wonderful perks for you as a bride. Details details!

  5. Jamal is so thoughtful, what a sweetie, you are completely entitled to brag :)

    The perfume sounds divine, I can almost smell it reading through the list of scents. I bought a rollerball fragrance when I was in New York, perfect for the handbag, I’ve no idea why they aren’t available over here.

    Wedding venue booked, how exciting! Can’t wait to hear all about it x

  6. Too bad there is no smell transmission via internet. Maybe we should invent it? Or google or some other company is already working on it…The scent definitely sounds like a great one to wear in the summer. And yay for finding a great wedding venue! I can’t wait to hear more about your wedding planning…
