This month Berkeley-based natural perfume house, Aftelier, is launching an uplifting fragrance, Candide. Candide is described as a bright, uplifting floral fragrance based on the novel from Voltaire. Candide is all about the feeling of happiness and optimism. This fragrance contains jasmine. Recent research in the Journal of Biological Chemistry says that “jasmine is better than Valium at calming and soothing”. One more reason to justify my fragrance purchases! 🙂
Aftelier Candide contains natural notes of jasmine, frankincense, pink grapefruit, and blood orange.
