VERDICT:

Such an exquisite fragrance! While floral and feminine, it’s also full of earth and musk. The scent is synergistic with my own natural body smell, making the best perfume match. I get compliments ALL the time. Little do they know the secret to a sexy scent is pure simplicity!

I mix 2 drops with a ½ teaspoon of almond oil and apply to my arms, chest, and tummy and it lasts all day. It’s invigorating and quite simply delightful. I also put it in my diffuser and home made deodorant and it’s lovely lovely lovely.

I’m so impressed by Neal’s Yard’s ethical credentials, that besides the myriad health and beauty benefits, I’m in love. The quality and intensity is top shelf, and has never faded over the 6 month duration I’ve had this bottle.

My only snivel about this was the actual bottle; blue is the Neal’s Yard signature color, but my local recycling does not take blue bottles, presenting me with a bit of a disposal dilemma. The plastic dripper was also temperamental, and I had to give it a good shake to get droplets out.

And while it’s slightly more expensive than other organic geranium oils on the market, I know my money is supporting animal, environmental, producer, and consumer welfare – which is always worth it.
