As we head into cooler months, I am putting away my beachy scents and transitioning into my warmer fragrances. One that has really caught my attention comes from the most unlikely source – a restaurant. I do believe that Serendipity 3 is the only restaurant to have its own signature perfume, Serendipitous ($45).sample| affiliate links
Serendipity 3 is probably most well-known for its fabulous Frrrozen Hot Chocolate (well, that and the Golden Opulance Sundae that costs $1,000.00, but that’s for another post all together!!). The Frrrozen Hot Chocolate is so delicious and smells so amazing that about ten years ago Serendipity 3 decided to create a fragrance that smelled just like the yummy drink…and a signature scent was born.
Serendipitous is a comforting scent featuring notes of cocoa, Tahitian vanilla, and blood orange. I know this fragrance has been available for over ten years but I just recently found out about it and it is going to be my go-to perfume this fall and winter. My oh my this smells FANTASTIC.
In a nutshell – or perhaps I should say, in a great big cup of hot chocolate – Serendipitous is a chocolate scent that is rich, warm, comforting, yet still somehow light. I’m not sure how this was accomplished because it seems like an impossible feat. My mom and my daughters tried it with the same results – it smells incredibly lovely on everyone. The dry down is marvelous; a dusting of deep, sophisticated cocoa with a whisper of smoky vanilla and blood orange and the tiniest bit of marshmallow. It’s not too foody – you don’t smell like a bakery, and it’s not sugary sweet so you don’t smell like a kid either.
If you are lucky enough to visit a Serendipity 3 restaurant, you can eat and drink the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate – and buy Serendipitous right there. If not, Amazon sells it online, and it’s also available at boutiques and at Serendipity3.com and LuckyScent.com. Eat it, drink it, wear it! – Lisa
