Ancienne Ambiance Goddess Neroli Water
A gorgeously uplifting orange blossom scent, our Goddess Neroli Water is not only refreshing on skin, but also a calming mood-boost when used as a pillow mist. Spray across linens before bedtime or over the face to set make-up, for a fresh luxurious fragrance which will soothe and comfort you. Full of therapeutic benefits for the skin, I love inhaling the scent while drifting off to sleep also.
