I am so happy that one of my favorite fragrance companies has come out with a new scent. I used to live above a Fresh boutique and the smell of Sugar Lychee, Pink Jasmine and Pomegranate Anise still reminds me of home. In fact, one of my favorite fragrances ever is Sugar Lemon by Fresh. So I am very happy about the release of the new Mangosteen collection, and most notably the new Mangosteeb Eau de Parfum.
This is also an equally sweet and fruity scent, but also has a touch of musk and florals which distinguish it from the famous Sugar collections. It is made from a blend of bergamot, Italian lemon, peach flower, freesia, mangosteen, sheer peony, rose, Brazilian rosewood and musk.
My girl YumSugar tells me that mangosteen is a superfruit that, despite its name, tastes nothing like mangoes. In its native Southeast Asia, it's often called the Queen of all Fruits. For the fragrance, Lev Glasman, Fresh Co-Founder and Director of R&D, chose to hone in on its juiciest part: the white pulp in the center, which has a high concentration of antioxidants. Huh, a perfume that's healthy for your skin, too: tell me, does it get any better than this?
Eau de Mangosteen is currently available in a 3.4 oz spray bottle ($75), and the collection also includes a bath and shower gel ($25), body lotion ($25) an oval soap ($14) and a gift set ($88).
