This being the week of love I felt it would make sense to talk about a new scent that I’m loving!
Donna Karan New York’s (DKNY) most recent perfume, Nectar Love.
Inspired by the beauty of blooming flowers that honey bees can’t resist, this dazzling perfume pays tribute to the honey bee that pollinates the breathtaking flowers that supply the essential oils that create the heady scent of Nectar Love.
This scent is an alluring and addictive Floral Fruity Gourmand that captures the undeniable attraction of nature.
Amongst the flowers used to create Nectar Love is yellow freesia, interweaved with succulent grapefruit, mandarin and nectarine to form the scent’s top notes.
A flourish of aromatic blooms, jasmine and orange flower, create the heart notes while Nectar Love is rounded off by whispers of cedarwood, creamy vanilla and gentle musk
However, the key ingredient is a distinctive mixture of sweet honeycomb and sensual neroli extracts that conjure up a gorgeous redolence at the base of the perfume.
The Nectar Love bottle embodies a transformation of the brand’s iconic apple, into a freshly golden silhouette, adding a golden hint of glamour to your dressing table!
The tiny bee element on the lid is an ode to the super hero of the fragrance world – the honey bee – the iconic insect without which flowers would not be pollinated…
This new campaign is all about falling in love and being captivated by an undeniable attraction to another – not unlike the irresistible draw a bee feels to a blooming flower!
The honey bee is a central character for the campaign as DKNY aim to shed some light on how critical the honey bee is to the global food chain. Worldwide the honey bee is under threat due to pesticides, parasites, disease and habitat loss. Without bees pollinating crops and flowers, our food sources will be threatened as will the essential oils used to create the fragrances we love!
The yellow freesia, jasmine & orange flower found in the new DKNY Nectar Love fragrance are all pollinated by bees as are the fruits of mandarin, grapefruit and nectarine that also feature in this new scent.
