Peridot: (Birthstone for August) A jubilant fragrance that is as crystalline as the sparkling, grassy-green stone after which it was named, Peridot conjures images of springtime and new life rising from the earth. Refreshing top notes of crisp cucumber and sweet lime from Mexico inspire optimism in homage to the stone’s renowned power to dispel negative emotions. Notes of freesia and juicy wild fig comprise a full, green middle accord that evokes abundance and the peace, love and success the Peridot stones are said to attract. The fragrance’s single base note of sheer Egyptian musk is clean yet alluring. The Peridot was Cleopatra’s favorite gem – no doubt she would have loved a perfume as graceful and sensual as this.
