Mistral Grapefruit Red Currant or “Pamplemousse” is described as “a lively, uplifting citrus fragrance“. Grapefruit Red Currant is a tart fruity-citrus fragrance with transparent florals.
Mistral Grapefruit Red Currant opens with grapefruit and tangy red currants. It does become floral. I get soft lemon blossom and an anemic jasmine. It’s a “light” floral but sharp. I can barely smell it on me at all. It’s gone within 10 minutes, but you guys have heard that my skin loves to “eat” citrus… Continue reading | 4 Comments
Rose Week: Feb. 7-11
For some reason, I have always liked Mistral Litchi Rose or Lychee Rose, well in soap form. I’ve bought a few bars of soap in this fragrance for gifts.

Mistral Verbena Flower (Fleurs de Verveine) perfume is a vibrant herbaceous citrus fragrance resembling lemon verbena. This is a light fragrance that is clean and refreshing for summer wear.
Unfortunately I am sampling Mistral Verbena in the chillier months. My house is cold; my feet are frozen. All I can think about is Busgrogg, cashmere, and incense-like fragrances. Mistral Verbena isn’t a fall or cooler weather fragrance at all. It’s a light, refreshing fragrance. I feel like if I sampled Verbena in… Continue reading | 8 Comments
