Roger & Gallet Eau des Bienfaits

Roger & Gallet Eau des Bienfaits

You know that fresh citrus hit you get when you peel an orange?

Well, add an extra hit of concentrated zest and Roger & Gallet have captured just that – Eau des Bienfaits is all blue-skies-are-here-at-last and the luminous neon bottles have ‘summer’ written all over them.

And Eau des Bienfaits is a little bit different – it’s not an EDT or EDP,  it’s a hydrating body mist containing kiwi extract, ginseng, lemon fruit acids and soothing aloe vera.  The clincher is the fact that Eau des Bienfaits is not at all oily – it’s refreshing and goes on “clean” and dry, so this is a good one for languid afternoons under the beach umbrella.

At £28.50/100ml and on offer at Escentual.com for £25.65, you can spritz away to your heart’s content this summer, in the city or at the beach.   Just add two sunloungers, a handsome French waiter bearing a menu and cocktails for two.  Bonnes vacances.

PS: “Bon anniversaire”, Roger & Gallet! 1862-2012: Celebrating 150 beautifully perfumed years.

Fragrance notes: Officially inspired by the blood orange, “EDB” mixes bright notes of mandarin, bergamot and lemon with “powdery notes of violet leaves and orange blossom in the heart, and a sensual dry down of cedar and patchouli”.
