A Light Light Touch (Perfume Thoughts: L’eau de Toilette, Carven)

_9345405Spring is coming up, and if you are searching for something light, airy, watery, fresh, and clean, look no further than Carven L’eau de Toilette. It is a flanker to the great Carven Le Parfum, and both are signed by Francis Kurkdjian, so it must be good.  L’eau de Toilette is very light – think of a water color green – a bit washed put but with a sense of brightness. It starts with a limey grapefruit citrus blast – it’s there but fades quickly though it never disappears. I know people who love the grapefruit note, and this might be too late for them on that end.  Even the florals – peony and hyacinth –  are muted, giving the scent a real light touch. If you work near someone who is allergic to perfumes, this is as inoffensive (and still pretty) as it gets.
