Discover Your Signature Scent at Rustan's The Beauty Source

They say your perfume is an extension of your style and your choice of fragrance says a lot about you. But with so many options available on the market, finding "the one" can be quite difficult.

If you're still searching for your signature scent, you might want to check out the four fragrances I previously reviewed: CLEAN Original (a fresh citrus,) CLEAN Skin (a fruity floral,) Versace Eros Pour Femme (a floral woody musk) and Moschino TOY (a light citrusy woody musk.) To help you even more, I will be posting my thoughts on this bottle of HISTORIAE Orangerie du Roy, which I recently received from Rustan's.

Renowned for authentic and refined luxury French fragrances, HISTORIAE embodies Parisian culture and tells the History of France through a wide range of products: perfumes, perfumed soaps, scented candles and room sprays.

 A Bertrand Duchafour creation, Orangerie Du Roy is a celebration of the King's love for orange blossom. The story is that Louis XIV had a great sensitivity for smells so his personal perfumer, Martial, created a perfume for him for each day of the week. According to the French writer Saint-Simon, the King overused musky perfumes so much that by the end of his reign, he could no longer bear any except for the odour of the orange flower.

Top notes: Lemon, sweet orange, petit grain, basil, spearmint and bergamot
Mid notes: Orange blossom, ylang-ylang, honeysuckle, lavender, thyme and mock orange
Base notes: Patchouli, vetiver, oak moss and musk

I find floral-infused perfumes to be heavy but I like that this has a light, pleasant scent. The citrus burst upon application is very refreshing especially with the added mint and basil undertones. Although the heart is a bit more floral with the predominant orange blossom, lavender and honeysuckle, you can still smell the herbal hint of thyme. The base is rich and mossy.

Fresh, natural and regal― Orangerie du Roy is definitely fit for a King or Queen and brings to mind the Royal Court of Versailles.

Looking to try this scent and the other four perfumes I previously reviewed? You can find all these products at the Beauty Department of Rustan's Deparment Store. I would suggest requesting a sample of the fragrance you like and spraying it on yourself (and not just on the tester strips) as body chemistry can affect how a perfume smells. Spritz on your wrists and check throughout the day to see how you like it.
