Fragrance File: Sunflowers Sunlight Kiss by Elizabeth Arden

Elizabeth Arden have some amazing easy to wear, clean fragrances.

The Sunflowers offering from Elizabeth Arden is no exception to this. Fruity, floral and fresh, the original Sunflowers perfume has been around since 1993 which shows just how timeless Sunflowers is!

The latest incarnation, Sunflowers Sunlight Kiss Eau de Toilette, is a great example.


The Scent

With it’s radiant notes of Italian Bergamot, Sparkling Mandarin and fresh Apple Leaves, a delicate floral heart of Rose, Jasmine and Osmanthus Cyclamen and a base of heady Driftwood and Solar Musk, it perfectly captures summertime in a bottle with it’s warm, effervescent notes and the essence of fresh blooms.

Inspired by an undulating field of sunflowers swaying in the sun, the perfume evokes the sensation of a ripe summer’s day with marine nuances. This is an uplifting scent that will instantly brighten your day and make you feel refreshed.

The scent lasts about 4-5 hours and then it’s time for a top up. It fades throughout the day to a softer version of itself.

It is also the perfect day to evening scent, however, as mentioned above, it does require another spritz by the end of the day as it does fade.


The Packaging

I absolutely love the box it has a tie die effect that I think is so stunning, I just wish this translated onto the bottle!

The bottle itself is a sleek oval shape with a plain white lid, sleek and simple.

Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers Sunlight Kiss is a refreshing, easy-to-wear fresh feminine fragrance that will suit the free spirited and young-at-heart. The wearer is energetic, sunny and radiant.

Overall I really enjoy Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers Sunlight Kiss. It’s an easy to wear fragrance to spritz on in the morning, when heading to the beach on a holiday or to apply in the evening before a dinner date or a fun night out.
