I got the chance to review Lise Watier's newest fragrance Desirable! As I opened my package I was quite pleased to see this sophisticated bottle with the dangling necklace attached simple and pretty I thought to myself. As I sprayed it on I noticed a heightened floral aroma that tickled my nose.
As the perfume began to settle in I picked up on the sweet apple, honey osmanthus and sandalwood scents on my skin. I also tried the fragrance on a few of my girlfriends and to our surprise the perfume smells differently on each one of us! Some girls were all floral, some you could smell more the wild berries scents and magnolia while others picked up more of the musk and sandalwood undertones.
I give Lise Watier's newest scent 2 thumbs up, I love how it starts off with a punch of floral aromas and then gently settles in to your skin to create a unique scent!
I agree as well as my girlfriends that Lise Waiter's Desirable is a must have to add to your perfume collection you will like what you smell!!
You can get this scent at your local Shoppers Drug Mart.
You can also check out the website at www.areyoudesirable.com
