Oyedo: Truly, madly, deeply
« on: April 04, 2014, 02:55:06 PM »
I have fallen head-over-heels in love with Oyedo!

Curious about Tom Ford's Neroli, I stopped by the fragrance counter last week to test it, and found it not quite what I was looking for. The sales associate suggested Diptyque's Neroli, and that wasn't it, either. Then, she sprayed me with Oyedo. Hummm... wasn't sure...wanted to wear it for a bit...left the store.

By the time I'd reached my car, I was hooked, but I didn't turn around and buy it. Instead, went home and obsessively sniffed my wrist until there was no trace of the scent left (it lasted about four hours). The next day, I returned to the store and bought a bottle.

To me, Oyedo smells like orange soda or orange candy, sharp iris, and thyme. It takes me immediately to the garden of the house we lived in when I was four or five years old, whereI loved to smell the iris and tulips that bloomed in the late spring. It makes me so happy, I can't even describe it adequately.  :cloudnine:

Thank you, Thanna and Foo Dog for suggesting this awesome fragrance when we were discussing orange and other citrus fragrances last fall.

Ohh, my dear!  Isn't it wonderful when you find exactly what you wanted?  Something so perfect that you wouldn't change a thing.  Now you stay on guard for rumors of it being discontinued, so you can stockpile your precious in time.

That sounds lovely, Christine!  It's soo true that when you fall in-love with a product, they somehow know, and breaks your heart down the road.
