Leslie Blodgett just came out with a perfume line called Perfume Diaries. Bare Skin is her first scent in the series, which delivers top notes of black pepper, freesia and anise, heart notes of iris, vanilla orchid, plumeria and patchouli, and the dry down sizzles with sandalwood, labdanum and musk. According to Leslie, “When I have an experience, I like to have a scent behind it. Bare Skin, which is what Mexico reminds me of, is the way you feel when the sun is beating down on you during the day, but then you go out at night and you’re still sizzling from the warmth of the day which mingles with the night air and the music.”
I was able to try a sample of this scent and I really like it! When I first opened the mailer it came in, I was a little taken back by the scent. It was very overpowering, and it wasn't even open! Wanting to give the perfume a second chance and not judge it by my first initial reaction, I put it on the next morning. Surprisingly, the scent wasn't overwhelming at all. Go figure! And it also lasted all day with only a slight dulling of the scent.
Bare Skin is available exclusively at Sephora. It comes in a spray ($55), a solid perfume ($35), and a body cream ($30).
I was given a free sample of the Bare Skin perfume to post an honest review about it. All comments are my own.
