Review: Yves Rocher Moment de Bonheur

Wednesday, May 28, 2014
I was very kindly sent this fragrance to review from Baobella, click here to check out their site. I have loved Yves Rocher for years but  I wish they had stores or concessions here! I did have a couple of their fragrances two/three of years ago called Peach and also Flower Party both of which I really liked, especially the latter. 
I have the *Yves Rocher L'eau Moment de Bonheur (50ml, EDT, £38). Firstly, the packaging is just gorgeous - so simple, clean and fresh, perfect for the time of the year. The bottle is pretty too as well as being simple and practical. However, one thing about the packaging that I don't like is the green writing on top of the green liquid. The fragrance comes in a 50ml size and also a 15ml purse spray (£13) which sounds so convenient and handy for travelling.

The fragrance notes are as follows: centifolia rose, sweet apple and virginia cedar essence. Individually all of the notes sound just gorgeous, especially the rose and unusual sweet apple. The notes combine beautifully to create a gorgeous floral, fresh, crisp scent that does have a slight musk towards the end of the wear of the fragrance but it still remains very light and refreshing. The scent is almost an instant pick me up, it is so refreshing - perfect for spring/summer. 

The longevity of the fragrance is good, on clothing it lasts for around four hours on me and on my skin it lasts for around five hours which I think is very good overall - however everyones skin 'chemistry' is different so fragrances may last longer on some people when compared to others. Considering this fragrance is an eau de toilette, it is not expected to be amazingly long lasting anyway. Tip: applying a unscented body lotion before using a fragrance may make it last longer! 

Overall, I love the packaging and the fragrance - it smells like spring/summer in a  bottle to me. It is very uplifting, refreshing and light. The longevity is very good, although not amazing on me personally. I am very happy with the fragrance and I would definitely recommend Yves Rocher perfumes. ★★, 5/5 from me! 

Have you tried any fragrances from Yves Rocher
