A New Spring Scent

Tattoo Perfume by Michel Germain Spring Scents
One risk I think many are taking more and more these days is ordering perfumes online based on note descriptions alone. There are so many niche scents now that are not readily available to sniff, waiting on the other side of our scentless device screens, too much to miss. When last years quest of finding a new fragrance for Spring seeped right into this one I took a leap and went for a 100ml bottle. This time what followed was so good I wanted to share it with everyone here, especially for those of you who are fellow gourmand lovers in need of a sweet, but not too sweet, fix year 'round.

This gem is called Tattoo and it's by Michel Germain. Spritzing citrusy Tattoo on one wrist I put it side by side with many Spring releases and it remained worlds apart yet comfortingly familiar. Likely because of what Michel Germain left out. The notes are few but they're so refreshingly different.

The lime is mellow and there is plenty of greenery at first as if a few leaves slipped in too. Any fruitiness comes from the passionflower... if you've ever stuck your nose into that crazy looking thing or sipped it's aromatic tea will recognize it peeking through. The caramel, amber and musk turns everything into one luscious, creamy dessert. A Key Lime pie complete with billowing meringue on top and a graham cracker crust underneath. Yet, with the honeysuckle and passionflower, it's kept from being too literally foodie and instead is dreamily soft, tropical, fresh and addictive.

It stays very close to the skin which makes it a definite keeper come Summer. It feels right at home alongside it's kin Dolce & Gabbana's Light Blue/Lanvin's eclact d'arpege, Burberry Brit EDP and Prada Candy.
