Van Cleef and Arpels Aqua Oriens

Spring is far from in the air. Here in the South West, it’s all crashing waves and dramatically high tides, and the whole country is suffering rain, gales and more rain. But things are beginning to brighten up in the perfume world…


For an instant glimmer of sunshine, look to the likes of Van Cleef & Arpels most delicious fragrance, the limited edition, Aqua Oriens. Inspired by the brand’s High Jewellery collection, it looks like a precious gem found on a tropical seabed.

A spritz of Aqua Oriens results in holiday cravings like nothing you’ve ever felt, even when your friend who goes on about four trips a year puts up a third batch of photos of her jaunt to the Maldives. Crisp and clean, fruity notes include Tahitian lime, fresh pear and a gentle touch of orange blossom, sweetened with a few drops of honey. Drying down to a base of musk and amber, the finish is delicate and warm. 


Back again and always beloved, it’s the perfect, long-lasting summer fragrance… and it won’t be around for long.


Get it while you can! Don’t miss out on this tropical gem.
