June Jacobs Better Love Naturel Eau de Parfum ($90.00)

For 2008, June Jacobs wants to go eco-friendly, and they reformulated their Better Love scent to be more “Naturel.” I hate to say it, but I would never wear this scent. I found it cloying, overly smoky with a heady mix of nutmeg, and just not something I would see myself wearing. I put it to the boyfriend-sniff-test, which evoked a response of, “It smells like old lady.” Since I’m 21, that is mostly definitely NOT the fragrance I want to keep on my shelves! Best part about it? The packaging is simple and elegant. Unfortunately, the scent just isn’t for me, but I would love to hear your thoughts on it if you’ve had the chance to check it out!

Notes include: Bergamot, Lemon, Mandarin, Rose, Jasmine, Pink Pepper, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cream, Cedar, Musk, and Amber.

    My husband surprised me with a replacement bottle of Better Love. My bottle ran out several months ago. My local spa no longer stocked it, and he surprised me. The surprise was on us. I was certain it had a different fragrance than I remembered. It used to be irresistable, and now it is almost the opposite. So, I googled and learned the product changed. I hope they go back to the original. The old adage “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it” stands true here.
