Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Soleil Eau Fraiche - Review

I bought this when it first launched around May/Early June if I am not mistaken?
But truthfully this scent has been a grower on me, from the first spritz I loved it and hurriedly bought it 
while in the beauty halls of the House of Fraser then I sprayed it again later that day and decided it wasn't for me. So I put it aside and forgot about it until I was packing for a recent trip and decided to give it another go and who would have thought was love all over again!

Estée Lauder Soleil Fraiche Skinscent
Summer’s new sun-kissed fragrance. Inspired by the warmth of the Mediterranean, a citrus floral blend 
with notes of Bergamot and Orange Blossom. 

Top Notes
Sicilian Citron
Calabrese Bergamot
Blood Orange
Sweet Tangerine
Provencal Lavender Flowers
Lemon Tree Leaves (Petitgrain)

Middle Notes
Neroli from Tunisia ORPUR™ Moroccan Orange Blossom ORPUR™
Indian Sambac
Grapefruit Tree Blossoms
Pink Lily Nectar

Base Notes
Blond Woods
Iris Accord
Ambrette Seeds
Crystalline Musks

Estée Lauder list this as a warm sunny sparkling scent and I completely agree it is a burst of warm fruity sunshine in a bottle. To me it is somewhat similar to the original DKNY scent (not the apple Be Delicious scents) only with more of a grapefruit kick. It is a light but crisp scent that lasts pretty much all day on my skin despite not being an Eau de Parfume. If you are looking for a refreshing and lightly fruity scent to see you through the rest of the summer then I highly recommend giving this a spritz at your local Estée Lauder counter. I realise that this is now sold out via Estée Lauder online store but in all of my local Boots stores it is very much in-stock but won't be forever as it is a limited edition.
