Optiphi Essence 1.618 – aromatic balm

I am a great lover of perfume, and very keen to try different brands according to my mood.

Optiphi’s Essence 1.618 aromatic balm is truly divine. My first experience with a solid perfume (received at a blogger event earlier this year), and months later I am still impressed. It comes presented in a cute vintage-like tin. Now a staple in my handbag.

What does it smell like? It’s hard to describe… warm, softly sweet, discreet yet seductive. I apply a smidgen to my pulse points during the day. It lasts for a few hours and I can’t resist sniffing my wrists every now and then! The fragrance is gentle enough for those who don’t like anything too overpowering.
