Nui Cobalt Designs: The Bees’ Cotillion

Nui Cobalt Designs The Bee’s Cotillion

Succulent pears simmering in spring honey with the gentlest breeze of lily carried in a homespun infusion of honeysuckle flowers.

The last of the three scents that I was sent is from the NCD bee inspired collection. While I’m not huge on most floral scents, I love pear and honey, and honeysuckle can sometimes work as well. It also sounded perfect for spring!

In the bottle: Thick, gorgeous, golden honey with a sweet, floral sweetness. The honey note here is just beautiful, and the pears and honeysuckle pair perfectly with it. I can’t detect any lily yet, but we’ll see what happens on the skin.

On the skin: This is absolutely gorgeous. Pears and honey are the first things that I smell, and the combo is sweet without being cloying or super foodie.  I swear I can detect some ginger in there as well. The honeysuckle balances the sweetness with that thick, heady floral aroma. I can’t pick out the lily, but there is a freshness to the scent that might come from that. The scent has good throw for such a light blend. This might be a weird analogy, but this is the olfactory equivalent of the painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat. It’s spring in a bottle.

TL;DR: Sweet honeyed pears and heady honeysuckle. Fresh and springy. 5/5.
