Bayou d’Amour

2014-12-30 18.11.24According to the description for Bayou d’Amour on Hové’s website this fragrance is, “An exotic blend of floral notes dominated by notes of the luscious fruit, mango.”  I did smell mango, but I also think I detected banana and it was very unique and really beautiful.  I’ve never smelled a banana perfume before…

In the drydown, which is warm and lovely, I believe I smelled musk, possibly civet (possibly) and tonka bean.  Although, I can’t find a list of fragrance notes so I’m not sure, of course.

Bayou d’Amour is an elegant, Deep South, sweet, fruity floral that is romantic, tropical and slightly evasive.  Hové Parfumeur never ceases to amaze and delight me with the originality and allure of their fragrances (sillage and longevity are decent too).  Everything I’ve tried is so New Orleans, and in the nicest way.  I truly hope I am able to visit Hové someday.

Now for some reviews…

Caudalie, Make-Up Remover, Cleansing Water is just one of many new cleansing waters that I’ve wondered about recently since I feel like I see them everywhere – Instagram, other blogs, Pinterest, etc.  A lot of people seem to really like cleansing waters and a good portion of people really like Caudalie, however, this blogger was not so excited about her experience with Caudalie Cleansing Water.  No, indeed.  I actually think it might have caused pimples…  And, I don’t believe it cleansed my skin any better than just plain water.  So, sorry, Caudalie, I really wanted to like this product, but I did not…

Well, I hope your Monday is starting nicely, or finishing well, or what have you.  🙂  Until Wednesday…
