We’re dreaming about sunny days and Oscar de la Renta’s Bella Bouquet puts us in the warm and happy headspace we’re craving every time we spritz a little on.
A floral bouquet, this feel-good fragrance is full of garden-fresh notes, beginning with tart bergamot, sweet freesia, green bamboo leaves and juicy clementine. Pretty magnolia, jasmine sambac, honeysuckle and lily blooms soon burst forward and are intertwined with plump ripe peaches before being absorbed into a warm and woody blend of cedarwood, sandalwood, amber and musk. All combined, it feels feminine and grounded, intimate and elegant, and leaves us glowing, like we’re basking beneath the sun.
“I was inspired by Oscar de la Renta’s vibrant, lush gardens in Punta Cana,” says Claude Dir, the master perfumer who created the scent. “Bella Bouquet is a beautiful feminine floral that captures the tropical dreamscape with luscious greens, opulent floral and sensual woods.”
We couldn’t agree more. The perfume’s sky-blue bottle, embellished with an embroidered mesh of tiny flowers and a peek-through silver label enhances the perfume’s charming effect, while the entire vibe transports us straight into its lush garden despite the snow outside. The vegan eau is also cruelty-free and crafted from sustainably sourced ingredients, making it an even worthier scent for us to wear right now.
