La Bella Figura is a natural skincare line based in Chicago that has launched a trio of destination inspired perfumes. Barcelona is the crisp citrus from the trio. It’s my “summer choice” out of the three.
Barcelona opens with bright citrus. It’s a fruity pink pepper and orange juice. In the heart, I get a lemon and jasmine that mimics lemon blossoms in bloom. The dry-down is a waxy jasmine with bitter citrus. The overall feel of the fragrance is bright, sunny, you know, Mediterranean. It’s like an orange or a lemon grove.
Notes listed include pink peppercorn, cognac, Sicilian lemon, wild orange, elemi, jasmine, beeswax, peru balsam and amyris. Launched 2012.
Give Barcelona a try if you like natural citrus fragrances. Or if you like perfumes like Aftelier Candide, Olfactive Studio Still Life, Strange Invisible Perfumes Peloponnesian, Pacifica Malibu Lemon Blossom and/or Rebel + Mercury Zeste. Barcelona is unisex. I think it does well as a day time or “casual” weekend type fragrance.
Barcelona has below average projection wearing very closely to the skin. Longevity is average but keep in mind that it wears very close to the skin.
The 1.4 oz perfume oil retails for $90 at La Bella Figura. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Spiced, bright citrus. This isn’t my sort of thing, I’m so picky with citrus (if you read EauMG regularly, you know this). It’s one to try if having an all-natural citrus in your collection is a priority.
