Kelly & Jones – Notes of Riesling Eau de Parfum

Kelly & Jones - Notes of Riesling Eau de Parfum
Aromas of fresh-picked white peach, anjou pear, bergamot and raspberry leaf.

If you are familiar with Riesling wine, you might be aware of the fact that it is a very fruity and bright wine and is often used when the wine is quite young versus waiting for the wine to age.  This is at the same time, a wine that is said to age very well.  It is youthful and bright and very versatile.  Riesling wine can be paired with many different foods.  Pair it with everything from spicy foods to desert.

With this in mind, I applied my sample of Kelly & Jones Notes of Riesling EDP.  My initial response was how very true to the note description this is!  For me, it is rare to have a peach note in a perfume that is nectar sweet.  The peach note combined with the pear is intoxicating.  I cannot keep my nose away from my wrist.  This is a refreshing scent.  By this I do not mean soapy, just-out-of-the-shower refreshing.  This is a cooling drink, tenderly sweet, sitting under a tree in a park on a perfect summer's day.  The raspberry leaf note escapes me but only because I am not familiar with that particular nuance in a fragrance.  I actually pick up on a green apple note, ever so slightly sour that I am enjoying so much with the peach and pear notes.

This may be my new favorite.  It's a tough choice for me between the Notes of Merlot and the Notes of Riesling - If I had to chose just one...oh dear...I just do not know which I would pick.  I guess it would depend on my mood.  For a romantic evening, the Merlot.  For an afternoon date, the Riesling.  Writing that here though, I am realizing that the Riesling is not just for daytime.  Nope, it is just as versatile as the wine itself.  This perfume is youthful and yet ages very well (just like YOU!)  Wear it for your mellow dates AND your spicy dates - and anything in between!
