Sunday Scent: Lokum Myndos Breeze

This weekend has been none-stop - in fact, this week has been pretty none-stop too. Yesterday I went dragon boating for charity with all my work friends, last night I went out for my graduation celebration meal and today I picked up my wedding rings. The dragon boat racing was a great way to get to know all my new work colleagues and I had so much fun, I wish I could do it all again and the meal last night was amazing. We ordered a lovely bottle of our favourite champagne and dined at my favourite restaurant. When we finished, we headed out for a few celebratory cocktails at a quiet Moroccan style bar hidden away in Huddersfield. Despite all the fun I had with the meal and the dragon boating, this weeks highlights was definitely picking up my wedding rings. It is now 9 weeks until our big day and everything seems to be taking place. The nerves haven't hit me yet nor my partner, but with it being so close, I do wonder who will be the first to crack. When I slipped my wedding ring onto my finger, it all felt real and I did not want to take it off. This week has been so busy that unfortunately I have barely had chance to blog, but I think with everything that I've been doing, I can be let off.

This short Sunday post is about a fragrance that I received a few weeks ago and can't stop wearing. Since I have been ridiculously busy over the last few weeks, this beautiful product ended up at the bottom of my draw and until now, I haven't had the chance to review it. The Lokum Myndos Breeze (link*) is from an online turkish perfume retailer and the brands philosophy is based around bringing traditional turkish scent and flavours to modern culture, highlighting the products natural beauty. I love traditional turkish scents. My dad went on holiday years ago and brought me back three turkish fragrance oils and I loved all of them. They would linger on my skin for hours and smell nothing like the fragrances we get over here.

A few days ago I applied the Mandarin Eau De Cologne from Lokum to my skin before going to the doctors and I was pleasantly surprised with how long the fragrance did last, it reminded me of those fragrances my dad bought me years ago. Eau De Cologne is much stronger than your average Eau De Perfume and Eau De Toilette and can sometimes be rather over powering, but this Mandarin product is strong enough to smell on the skin, but subtle enough to not make everyone choke when you walk by. The smell of Mandarins reminds me of cocktails and the sun and makes me dream of going on holiday. The perfume settles in my skin nicely and is a scent I can wear all day through. This cologne is perfect for work as it barely needs re-applying and would also benefit someone  that is going on holiday and looking for a fruity, zesty summer scent.

Have you tried any Turkish Perfumes?
