ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Caudalie Fragrance Launch

ThisThatBeauty contributor Christene Carr (@ChristeneCarr) recently attended a fragrance launch at Caudalie Spa. Naturally, she has penned a post.

Vino in hand, smile abound, in the wonderfully fragrant and relaxing Caudaliespa at the Plaza hotel, I was introduced to Caudalieʼs three new fragrances, Fleur de Vinge, Zeste de Vinge and The des Vignes. The fragrances will soon be available online at caudalie-usa and are currently available at Sephora, Bluemercury and select specialty retailers.

The three fragrance combination was developed for Caudalie to capture the essence of life on the Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte, a vineyard owned by the parents of Caudalieʼs co-founder, Mathilde Thomas.

The dawn fragrance, Fleur de Vinge, uses top notes of grapefruit and mandarin, wonderfully balanced by the sweet subtle spiciness of cedar. If you are a morning person, you will love this fragrance. Fleur de Vinge starts off fresh but ends with a delicate sweetness. If you are not a morning person, this fragrance will give you a nudge to start your day.

Zeste de Vinge, the noon fragrance, is perfumer Francis Kurkdjianʼs interpretation of a afternoon stroll through Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte orangery, laden with citrus trees. Zeste de Vinge combines sweet lemon, petit grain and bergamot for a refreshing start, balanced with tangerine and finished with the tiniest hint of earthiness.

The des Vignes, the dusk fragrance, is the handy work of master perfumer Jaques Cavalier. It combines a few of my favorite scents: jasmine, neroli ginger and white musk. I find this fragrance sensual, alluring and seductive with a bit of mystery. It lingered on my skin and simply became more amazing with each hour that passed. The finish was that of powdery, gingery, musk. The des Vignes is by far my favorite fragrance from
the trio.

Try the Caudalie fragrance that fits your favorite time of day. Mine was spot on!

All three 1.7 fluid ounce bottles have a MSRP of $38.

[Editor's Note: This is Felicia...I all but wrested Christene to the ground for her sample of The des Vignes. It is a must-possess scent]
