David Yurman Summer Essence

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2.5 stars

COST: $85 for 100ml

THE SKINNY: Summer Essence is a limited edition scent from David Yurman. From the name, you'd guess it will only be available this summer.

This is a definite floral scent that reminds me of flowers and that scented powder I used to play with as a kid while visiting relatives. According to the perfume description, it contains notes of pear, peach and apple blossoms, a little hyacinth and a little orchid. (Then a whole mess of stuff after that.)

The scent is very flowery, although has sharper notes than some of those sticky sweet perfumes.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss: This just isn't a scent for me. It's much too flowery.
