Unlike your typical Marc Jacobs Daisy, for example, it isn’t a full on floral scent. It isn’t 100% musk either… a la Elizabeth Arden Red Door (*shudder*). In fact, it is rather… well… carroty. Yes, carroty.
Now I know that sounds odd, but the scent is so fresh, different and alluring, I can’t help but spray more!
“… It is inspired by wild nights in New York City that spill over into sunny winter days that are filled with time spent admiring the natural beauty of Central Park.
Carrots from organic farmers in Harlem [were] combined them with the delicate scent of the Carrot Flower. The seeds of this bright vegetable add an earthy element to this fragrance and are complimented with sunny notes of Oranges. I love Carottes has a warm sensual dry down with a hint of Caribbean Vanilla and Iris Butter.”
– Olivia Giacobetti, creator of I Love NY
I have come up with my own, more relateable, description of the scent:
“I Love Carottes is the perfect scent for the not so typical girl. Forget the done-to-death, sickly sweet florals for summer – stay down to earth with the fresh, quirky scent of I Love Carottes. Featuring a blend of carrot, coriander and vanilla (for a touch of sweet)… this tantalising parfum is as fresh and crisp as the vegetable itself. But don’t be fooled, you will not be left smelling like a garden salad… more like the refreshing sea breeze coming in off the West Australian coast on a warm summer’s day… or the scent of the warm grass you are sitting on, combined with the pretty flower bushes, on a picnic with your nearest and dearest. Divine. The perfect mix of sweet and refreshing”
– Monique Ceccato, Perfume Lover
If you feel like changing up your perfume collection, I Love Carottes is the perfect way to go. It fills that void in the perfume world, between the floral scents and the musky scents, creating a sensational olfactory category of it’s own.
If you would like to sample I Love Carottes, you can make a purchase at the Bathing Beauty store and select it as one of your samples!
