In Bloom by Reese Witherspoon Perfume
Perfume, Reviews - November 10th, 2009

cb-inbloomIn Bloom is the new perfume developed by Avon with the actress Reese Witherspoon. It is inspired by Ms. Witherspoon’s childhood memories of gardenia and magnolia trees in her yard. I was interested in reviewing it, since I’ve been on the hunt for a white floral perfume that I really liked.

The perfume includes notes of peach tea leaves and crisp greens, magnolia, gardena, jasmine, cashmere woods and amber woods. It has a wonderful freshness that is often missing from other white florals, and never gets too heavy or cloying. I love the peachy top note. The drydown is subtle, and mostly just gets softer and warmer, due to the amber.

I’m very pleased with In Bloom! I love the bottle too, even if the shape is strongly reminiscent of Guerlain’s Insolence. The lid is very pretty, shaped like a gardenia flower. I think it’s one of the prettiest bottles I’ve seen in a while.

This would be an ideal gift for a woman, especially if she likes feminine floral scents. I especially like that it is a more mature fragrance, and seems intended for an adult instead of a teenager like so many mainstream perfumes today. It’s a very romantic perfume. If this perfume were a woman, she’d love wearing cashmere sweaters and delicate jewelry, and would be sweet and kind.

I give In Bloom two thumbs up!

    I LOVE this perfume. I am very picky…and usually only buy very high-end fragrances. In Bloom really is a hit in my book. Very soft, feminine, yet unique. I have already gotten many compliments on this one…! It’s a real keeper.
