Elvie Firefly

fireflyI blind bought this one because of the name and the price and it turned out to be a great summer scent, fresh and sweet and playful.

Wet peaches on a warm evening, and grapefruit candy–the jelly kind crusted with sugar crystals–for a few hours, with roses on the bottom. The watery note lingers on clothes til morning.

There’s something unpretentious about it. Not cheap (well, actually, it is–Oriflame is Sweden’s Avon, and bottles can be had for less than ten euros) but uncomplicated and fun.


This uncomplicated and fun Swedish hit also came in 2016.
