Lucy B’s Apothecary – Royal Egyptian Amber & Honeysuckle EDP

While on vacation on the Outer Banks, the rain came in and I had to hustle my way into a little shop.  Inside that shop I found a little display case full of Lucy B’s Apothecary scents.  Well, I couldn’t NOT try it, right?

The bottle itself is beautiful, with the opaque image on the back.  Some quick googling (wow spell check recognizes that as a word!) led me to their simple yet elegant site and let me know they are out of Australia!

I chose Royal Egyptian Amber & Honeysuckle.  I love amber and the honeysuckle seemed perfect for spring.  The notes for this blend include top notes of honeysuckle and peach, a heart of jasmine with a touch of patchouli and a warm base of amber and cashmere.  I didn’t know these notes when I bought it.  I just knew it smelled good.  Patchouli?  If it’s there it’s well blended because I can’t pick it out.  I do get the jasmine and the peach.  The honeysuckle gives a bright yellow feel to the blend.  At the base the amber and cashmere give this a luxurious and soft feel.  This scent is feminine , soft, and beautiful.  So very perfect for spring!

Just goes to show, you never know where you will come across perfume!
