You know you've got it if it makes you feel good

Summer fragrance of choice - Azahar by Adolfo Dominguez.
A beautiful scent gifted from the boy, brought back from Spain.
-- I love reading perfume descriptions, don't you?

"Azahar is Spanish for orange blossom and it's easy to see the word is derived from the Arabic, like so many names for beautiful things in Spanish (azzahár in Andalusian Arabic meaning the same, stemming from the Arabic "zahr" for flowers).

Azahar begins with zesty orange citrus, a refreshing and natural aroma, blended with soft floral notes, making for a slightly sweet general impression.

The main scent here is the citrus though: orange flowers, orange treebark, orange leaves, neroli, and bergamot that makes it shine, evoking light and sun with a fresh spring topnote that follows into very stimulant midnotes and still refreshing basenotes.

We recommend Azahar if you are seeking a pleasant mixture of zesty and sweet orange with a subtle floral complement It is almost like walking into an orange grove with grapefruit trees and soft white roses.

What indeed could one associate more closely with Southern Spain, its breathtaking landscapes, pueblos blancos, its rich Arabic heritage and gitano folklore, than the scent of Azahar, wafting through the nocturnal streets of Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada or Jeréz."
