Confession: I always want to jump on a soapbox when someone describes a perfume as “mouthwatering.” I know what the copywriters mean when they use that adjective, but still: is there a perfume on the market that smells enough like food that we would really consider it “mouthwatering”? I think not.
I know what you are thinking, but there is no “but” here!
Neela Vermeire Creations Bombay Bling is not mouthwatering. It is a deliciously ripe and juicy perfume rendering of mango accented with lychee and white floral. To my nose, it’s the best fruity perfume produced since I-don’t-know-when, expressing pure joy and pleasure in life. Bertrand Duchaufour is the perfumer, but I think of Neela Vermeire herself when I smell Bombay Bling. It seems to perfectly capture her positivity, generosity, and optimism. It is expensive, but you may find it’s well worth the money for such a unique fruit-forward perfume.
