006: the orla kiely scent review


'a charming fragrance of light floral notes, with natural extracts of rose, geranium and bergamot, subtly balance with fresh fig and a hint of chocolate.' - orla kiely website 

if you watched my youtube haul that was live for all of 5 minutes you might have had a chance to see the absolute steal of a price i got on this orla kiely perfume in tkmaxx. so i thought i'd pop a review up and let you know where you can get it for a reduced price as well. its currently 05:29am and i'm led in bed with the orla kiely perfume practically stuck up my nose trying to think what it smells like.
a few hours later, i think i've come to the conclusion that if marc jacobs lola, daisy, honey and dot had a love child (which would be impossible but hey) it would be the scent that is 'orla kiely'. i'm a sucker for names of products and anything that has a really strong image to it, so whilst the packaging is completely beautiful i do wish they had been a little more inventive with the name. however, it's time for me to attempt this beauty blogger stuff and describe the smell… it's fresh like dot but dark like lola with the sweetness of honey and a drop of daisy and it's own floral rose and geranium notes. and if that didn't make you want it then this video on the orla kiely perfume website will most definitely.

overall: price £15.99 (reduced from £55 on amazon for 100ml!) • notes: floral and fresh • out of 10: 7/10
