Illume Demi Parfume in Cactus Verde

8 March, 2014


Cactus Verde 4

So last weekend I decided to head on in to Indigo at the Manulife Centre while I was doing some shopping downtown.  I thought I was going to come out with a few books because I haven’t been into a physical bookstore in quite some time.  Yeah, I was a bit wrong about that.  Instead I got caught up in the style section and ended up picking up some new goodies.  One of those goodies was the Illume Demi Parfume in Cactus Verde.

Can I just say that I love this stuff?  Oh my lord, it smells so good and may just very well be my new favourite scent.

Seriously, every time I put it on, I get nothing but compliments from absolutely everyone I come across.  They all want to know just what the scent I’m wearing is.  Score!  And it retails for $15.00 CAD.  Double Score!

Described as a blend of Cassis, Sea Salt + Wild Geranium I have no idea how to describe this scent other than to say it smells like Spring and Summer goodness all wrapped up in one.  It’s clean, it’s fresh, and it’s super long lasting.  I really wish there was a way for me to just allow you all to smell the amazingness that is Illume’s Demi Parfume in Cactus Verde right through my computer screen.

    I love the packaging, so sleek! I don’t know that I’ve ever tried a sea salt scent, but I’m intrigued! :)

      The packaging is so awesome. I didn’t even know a sea salt scent existed until I found this one. Now I’m in love.

    That’s my go-to Indigo! I work at Church/Bloor so I like to hide away in there at lunch. I had no idea they carried fragrance now. I am crazy about all that Kate Spade stuff there.

      It’s my go to Indigo as well. I’m at St. George/Harbord Street, so it’s the closest and easiest one to get to for a quick run in at lunch. They have so much new stuff now it’s not even funny. I was totally in there to pick up a new book and walked right past the books and got stuck on all the beauty/lifestyle products available.

    This sounds like it smells gorgeous! I should absolutely go looking for it next time I’m in Chapters!

      I just love it Kalyn! I love it so much that I picked up a second one. So far it looks like they only have Rollerballs of this Illume scents, but I really want them to come out in a traditional spray bottle!

    This sounds lovely, I will have to go check it out.

      It really is. It’s like a fresh spring morning. That is really the best way to describe it.
