Hello gorgeous Olfactoria’s Travelers,
Portia from Australian Perfume Junkies and Perfume Posse and today I thought we could chat about beachy scents, well one beachy scent. I know the northern hemisphere is getting colder and sometimes you need a sprayed reminder of the joys of summer. That lush and tropical zing that will put the spring back in your step and a swaggering swing in your hips.

Bronze Goddess always smells like having a great time with my friends, middle of summer call around lunch time to organise a meal and then hanging out. Nothing specific but a lazy afternoon or evening enjoying the fabulous outdoors and food in Sydney. I know the Europeans invented al fresco dining but we Aussies have made it our own. Somehow we make it simple yet always try also to make it feel like an occasion. You know that No-Worries scent that smells awesome and you never have to worry about it? Has some pretty changes to keep you interested but basically is such a good fit you can really relax into it, that’s Bronze Goddess.
No one needs to try to be be rich, smart, sexy or amusing in Bronze Goddess because you smell like a total cool kid all day anyway. You may even find its laid back bonhomie inspiring. Sometimes just relaxing into yourself can be the best way to spend an afternoon with friends, and if you are all that anyway then Bronze Goddess will amp it up.

I have the 2010 version of Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche but the whole range are all a fun holiday tropical type spritz that is extremely pretty, has good sillage and projection and they last well too. Coconut and/or jasmine seem to be the standout notes in the whole set and it’s the kind of carefree summery scent that smells like you are out for fun and are an uncomplicated, happy, breezy person ready for what ever the world holds. Bronze Goddess is not a fragrance you wear to smell corporate and tough, this is your fun laid back self. The lovely creamy amber in the base is warm enough to keep the chill of night away too.
