The story:
The first wearable Christmas fragrance. A warming winter cocktail designed as a delicious scent to celebrate the festive season.

Review:
Some scents you'll like, some scents you'll love. And then there's Orange Bitters, which is for me a WOW fragrance!
From the very first spray in store I was addicted. The initial tangy burst orange citrus brings to mind an Aperol Spritz - Fizzy, tart and bursting with orange.
And then the magic happens - Prune (dried plumbs) unfolds adding a warmth to the orange, which now has a gritty edge with the inclusion of orange bitters.
The orange fades to the background - But not too much, it still makes itself known, but is warmer and woodsier once it reaches its full dry down.
Sexy, warm and comforting - Maybe even a little naughty, Orange Bitters perfectly captures the build up to Christmas. Opulent and carefree, a must for Christmas parties!
