COURTYARD PREMIUM FRAGRANCE-SOLSTICE SCENTS

NOTES: Lavender, Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Coriander, Lime, Labdanum, Gardenia & More

I bought this little sample last year but I hadn’t done a proper full day wear since then. To be honest, the first sniff wasn’t positive and that’s why it stayed hidden in my sample stash, not getting any love.

When I first put this on today it reminds me of fresh, thick olive oil. The colour of the oil is dark green but the smell was so similar I couldn’t stop making this connection.
I was brave enough to put some more. Then, I realized that maybe I had to shake the sample vial.  I can smell the lime top note and the lavender. I totally agree with the official description on the site this Lavender is different. On the other hand, I don’t find it as sweet as the description on the site suggests.

While I was wearing this I thought that there is a light smokiness maybe from the Sandalwood and the Labdanum.
I don’t get any floral.

It’s a unisex scent for sure and I would love it as massage oil as it reminds me some aromatherapy blends that can be found in some “Bio” shops.

All in all, this scent doesn’t work on me but I can’t love them all!

  1. I just got a sample of this one - I haven't worn it yet, but on first sniff I got a lot of lavender and just GREEN. I didn't find it very sweet at all either, but I haven't tested it on skin yet. So strange that you smelled olive oil! What an odd scent.

    1. Actually, it smells exactly like a wax and olive oil salve that I am using. I put some last night and I thought Yep, That's it!

  2. Very interesting, it doesn't seem like it smells like what I'd imagine it to smell like! Nonetheless, I was always curious about this one. Thanks for the review, my dear!

    1. Always a pleasure to review scents!
      It may works for you Rachel, On me it was just too much olive oil that I coulsn't stop making this connection on my mind.
      At first, I thought that the perfume went of!

  3. It may just be Angela's descriptions influencing me, but this one really does smell like sun-warmed stone, so it's sort of easy for me to imagine a stone fountain in the middle of a garden.
