Terracotta Le Parfum; what a magical summer creation. This is Hot Stuff. If you are anything like me and can't go far away this summer, just spritz on some Terracotta, close your eyes, and do a little meditation to transport yourself to another world.
The white flowers in Terracotta are blissfully intoxicating. They seem like they are from such a faraway place that I will probably never go there. Like ancient Greece. If sunshine could become a syrup and drip down onto earth and into a bottle, that would be Terracotta. It's an intense white floral, but it isn't sharp or cloying. The scent is on another level of velvety, buttery and luxurious.
With soft coconut and milky vanilla blended in, your scent trail will leave an impression of tanning oil, mythical flowers, and golden sunlight pouring down on scalding hot rocks. Bring sandals and a hat!
While I will certainly revel in wearing this in the warmer months, I have always enjoyed wearing tropical/beachy perfumes in winter too, and Terracotta will be the first on my list when I need to mentally escape from dreary days.
Sillage and longevity are great. Projects better than a skin scent and lasts for several hours before a touch-up is needed.
Is that bottle not absolutely breathtaking?? And $79+tax at Nordstrom.com--that's it?! I can hardly believe the price for what might be one of the absolute best coconut-tanning-oil scents out there. I'd hurry and get a bottle if I were you. I hear whispers that this is a permanent fixture in Guerlain's line now, but I find that so hard to believe. It's one of those things you will procrastinate on, and then later you will kick yourself for not getting it while you could. And for that price!
