estee lauder bronze goddess perfume

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Perfume: BootsHouse Of Fraser / Debenhams (£40 for 100mls)
Top Notes: Scillian Bergamot, Mandarin, Middle Notes: Tiare Milk-Tahitian Gardenia Petals, Coconut Oils Orange Flower Buds, Jasmine, Base Notes: Amber, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Caramel, Coconut Cream
A while ago I posted about Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Capri fragrance but I couldn't resist being naughty and buying the original Bronze Goddess Perfume too. As soon as I spritzed it at the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Capri at the press launch I knew I had to have it. To me it smells like "holiday in a bottle". The perfume has a beautiful warm, refreshing coconutty scent. I find it takes me straight back to being on holiday and all the wonderful floral and fruity smells of summer. It almost feels a bit like cheating wearing it on the dreary days in London! I find the scent really lingers on the skin and I get whiffs of it throughout the day. The Coconut layer is very heavy at first but then as the day progresses I get other notes like the mandarin and the amber and the vanilla. Compared to Bronze Goddess Capri its much stronger in scent and has less citrus notes compared to the original Bronze Goddess fragrance. I personally like both, but I think this might actually edge over the finish line in terms of which I like the best!

Both this and Bronze Goddess Capri scent are limited edition fragrances, I highly recommend going to check them out in your local Boots or department store ASAP. I cannot stress how much I love this perfume! One spritz and I'm hooked! Im considering getting another bottle to last me until next summer. I think the Bronze Goddess Perfume tends to sell out every year, so don't hang about if you're interested in it!


  1. Ah man, it even looks beautiful! I made a mental note to have a look at this after you posted on Twitter about it - (Or maybe it was the other one) and keep forgetting! Will definitely check it out, the scent mixture sounds amazing.. Coconut, OMNOM! xx

  2. You had me at coconut. Im a sucker for anything coconut. Going to have the save my pennies.

  3. Ohh I really want to try this the bottle is beautiful! Love the glitter and the holiday smell sounds divine xx

  4. I got this through the mail today and oh my gosh i'm in love! I had seen you and a few other bloggers lusting after it and took a big risk buying it without having even smelling it but it's amaaaazing! thank you!

  5. I have to say I smelt the original and preferred it to the new one.

  6. I love coconut scent so I'm instantly sold on this. £40 for a 100ml bottle is pretty good too!

  8. I don't know whether you remember the days before Tom Ford had his own makeup and fragrance line but he actually was the first one to bring out a variance of this perfume in conjunction with Estee Lauder - I still have the matching shimmery tan at home and it is AMAZING.

    This is my 3rd bottle of this fragrance now and every single year I get compliments on it, I wear it alot and I reckon a bottle lasts for a year or so - as soon as I realised it was back I put my name on the waiting list at Selfridges and was super pleased when it came in! It is probably the only perfume I have been loyal to! :)
