Welcome back to the second day of Earth Week here on the blog! This whole week I'll be focusing on natural, organic and environmentally friendly products in celebration of Earth Day this weekend! Today, I wanted to show you guys a really gorgeous natural perfume that I've been trying out recently - the Weleda Jardin de Vie Argume Naturelle Parfumée*! This perfume is made with pure, fair trade essential oils and is blended in house and is free of any synthentic chemicals.

Can we talk for a second about how pretty this bottle is? I know it's just superficial, but I had to mention it because the bright orange to yellow ombré of the glass bottle is just gorgeous to me and absolutely screams summer.
When I first applied this, I wasn't quite sure how I felt about, but after wearing it a few times I found that I really liked the bright combination of citrus and floral. Even though the notes are listed as all citrus, I get a pretty strong ylang ylang scent memory when I wear this. The best description I can give is really that it's a vibrant scent and definitely a summer fragrance, in my opinion, and would be best for someone who really likes bright citrus and floral scents.
My one problem with this scent is definitely the lasting power, which I personally think is a pretty lackluster. When I first apply it, I find that it's quite strong (though not overpowering) but it does fade quite quickly and within a couple of hours I struggle to detect it on my skin at all. Because I've never really gone for natural perfumes, I don't know if that's the case with others, but I do think it definitely bears mentioning.
I think that for someone who is looking for a natural fragrance option and doesn't mind reapplying it, the Weleda Jardin de Vie Argume Naturelle Parfumée* could definitely be one to take a look at. The Weleda Jardin de Vie Naturelle Parfumée collection comes in 4 scents, all blended from essential oils, and is available in Canada on Well.ca!
