Estée Lauder Pleasures Flower Eau de Parfum Spray: Review

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
Earlier this year, Estée Lauder launched a special limited edition Pleasures perfume called the Pleasures Flower Eau de Parfum Spray ($62 USD for 60ml or $85 USD for 100ml); it is a springy fresh addition to the Pleasures fragrance family and it is perfect for the warmer weather to come.

Estée Lauder's Inspiration:
Welcome to a new attitude—carefree and sparkling with personality. The free-spirited Flower girl emerges with the first signs of spring. The brightness of the season shines through her. She’s a breath of fresh air. Genuine, natural and open to every pleasure. Spontaneous and live-for-the-moment, she’s original, creative and forever young.

Bottle Design:
Pleasure Flower comes in the classic rounded shaped bottle (like all other Pleasure scents). The bottle has pop art style dots painted in a pattern resembling a flower. The design is super adorable and suits the scent quite well.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Neroli, Mandarin, Cassis Buds, Leafy Green
Middle Notes: Peony, Rose, Muguet, Jasmine, Coconut Water
Base Notes: Ambrox, Vetiver

Upon first whiff Pleasures Flower is very citrus-y. The citrus is not the tangy kind, it's rather sweet but still refreshing. The floral notes comes through quickly after the hit of citrus and so you get a very nice fruity-floral mix. The scent fades within a few hours but because the it's so delicious, you'll definitely want to re-spray again and again.

This is a very playful and fresh scent for both the Spring and Summer. If you a big fan of the original Pleasures, you will find that Pleasure Flower is a quite different scent. I think the original Pleasures is good for year round but Flower definitely conjures up the feelings of warm weather and relaxing bike rides around the seawall.

Estée Lauder fragrances are available at The Bay, Sears, and Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada.
