Harvey Prince – Cherie Blossom
1.7 oz EDT 50 ml Made in the USA
The very simple logo on top of the perfume box. (Logo is orange, the camera on my phone is not the greatest)
Did I mention that I love their logo? Unicorn, carriage, stars, and the color orange.
Maybe I’m over analyzing the logo, but to me the logo says, “Driven by imagination” or “Driven by the unknown.” Unicorns and stars are mystical, magical, and unknown.
So, I did a little bit of my own research and found this on the Harvey Prince website:
“It began with a rebellious idea: boutique-quality scents should not be overwhelming, overpriced, and filled with toxic chemicals. Then came the inspiration: our mother, who loves honest products that feel and smell great. One Mother’s Day, we crafted a scent that captured her effortless and radiant aura. The result: Ageless, the first of our signature fragrances to take on the industry’s usual cosmetics-counter fare.”
Okay, so I was super excited when I chosen to review this product (and I was chosen on my birthday, so it’s like Birchbox sent me a birthday present ;) haha). Anyway, I was excited that I was chosen, because I don’t use many perfumes. I don’t use many perfumes, because I’m allergic to some of the fragrances. Like, seriously, if I go down a candle aisle or a laundry detergent aisle at a store I will sneeze about 20 times and have puffy eyes by the time I leave the aisle. Luckily, perfumes don’t give me that bad of a reaction (and most body mists don’t bother me), but I do tend to sneeze a lot when I wear perfumes so I try to wear them only on certain occasions. This product is listed as hypoallergenic. I did not sneeze once since I’ve put it on!
Cherie Blossom by Harvey Prince has a beautiful fragrance. The cherry blossom is not overpowering and it pairs well with vanilla and hint of musk. I can’t really smell the grapefruit though. I don’t think this scent is hyper-feminine, and I think that is because of the musk. This is a fragrance that I want to wear with a spring dress and some wedges, while I’m all dressed up at a Spring Flower Show or a benefit at a conservatory. I really love this fragrance, and only want to wear it on special occasions like a romantic date with my boyfriend. It just feels very intimate and lively.
Taken from Harvey Prince website:
“Cherie Blossom is the epitome of both rebirth in Japan and the power of a classic French seductress. Sweet, soft hints of Somet Sakura mingle with pink grapefruit and vanilla. A cool musk adds a touch of sophistication. Together, these fragrant notes play a song no man can resist. The woman who dares to wear Cherie Blossom feels timeless, and in truth, we look the way we feel.”
