Blue Week : 4. 10 – 4. 17
Esscentual Alchemy by Absinthe Dragonfly Blue Lemonade is a fruity-citrus, a natural hand-crafted perfume that reminds me of carefree summer days, sipping an iced glass of lemonade after a long day enjoying the outdoors.
I have to admit that I was a little wary of sampling Blue Lemonade. I’m not a citrus person, even though I know it is many people’s favorite perfume genre. This wasn’t what made me wary; I do appreciate citrus. You see, I have a blue food/beverage aversion. Blue foods freak me out. I stay away from blue candies and beverages because the taste is too gross for me and I hate to have blue stained teeth 😉 I finally tried Blue Lemonade. It isn’t synthetic like a Jolly Rancher. Blue Lemonade is a very wearable fruity citrus blend with an earthy base. It is more like an tall iced glass of fresh squeezed lemonade than a synthetic blue snow cone!
When I first sniff Blue Lemonade, I’m like “holy moly, Lemonheads”. It smells just like them, tart and sweet. It’s very nostalgic for me. After about 5 minutes, I get lemongrass. It’s almost citronella-ish but more grassy, verging on lemon balm but with more grass, maybe vetiver? It’s good. Within 15-30 minutes, Blue Lemonade gets “floral” sweet. It goes osmanthus fruity. I don’t want to confuse people and make them think that Blue Lemonade is a floral. It isn’t. Blue Lemonade is a citrus scent, mainly lemon, lime, and lemongrass. However, it has a sweet, almost peach fruitiness from floral blossoms. It’s a pleasant surprise. The base of Blue Lemonade is interesting. It’s a blend of fruity citrus, earthy patchouli, and grassy vetiver. Unexpected but good. Blue Lemonade is easily unisex.
Blue Lemonade isn’t a me scent. You guys know that I’m just now learning to appreciate most citrus. One day… Blue Lemonade is fun and well, too fun for me! I’m a fuddy duddy but I won’t stop you guys from having fun 😉 This perfume is too playful and rambunctious for me. Like a glass of chilled lemonade, this Esscentual Alchemy perfume is refreshing and energizing. If you want an icy citrus fragrance, Blue Lemonade is it!
