Penhaligons Ostara This pretty fragrance is inspiried by daffodils and perfect for the pending Easter and blooming Spring. t has a citrus smell that is not too overpowering due to its sweet overtones. It also feels extremely fresh when applied to your skin and the good thing is that the sense of vigor remains a good few hours later. If like me you like your perfumes to contain Bergamont and Vanilla then you will be a fan of this.
