Moresque Moreta EDP Perfume Review

Moresque Moreta

Moresque is one of those luxury Italian brands that is inspired by the Middle East. I used to be really cynical and thought of all of this as to how to break into an Arab market.

These are the sort of florals that make me think of spring. Plus, it gives me an excuse to talk about some of my favorite floral notes.

Why don’t we talk about Au Pays de la… Continue reading | 6 Comments
