Around The World Series: Morocco (Kiehls Aromatic Blends Orange Leaf & Lychee Fragrance)

By  |  388 Comments

Orange Flower  Lychee Range

Kiehls new Aromatic Blends Collection includes four fragrances: Orange Leaf & Lychee, Fig Leaf & Sage, Vanilla & Cedarwood, and Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit. The Aromatic Blends collection has formulated these fragrances to be a truer rendition of the ingredients involved, using high quality key ingredients to get a scent that really reflects the areas they are inspired by.
For the release of these fragrances, I’ve teamed up with Kiehls to bring you four looks inspired by the fragrances themselves and the areas around the world they were inspired from.

Orange Leaf & Lychee: Morocco
Fig Leaf & Sage: Provance
Vanilla & Cedarwood- Uganda
Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit- Japan

Each scent comes in three forms- A fragrance, body wash, and body lotion.

For my first tutorial, I chose to do a look inspired by the Orange Leaf & Lychee fragrance, as well as the location it is inspired by, Morocco! 
I really love the Orange Leaf & Lychee Fragrance. The scent itself is based off of the Bitter Orange tree that is native to Morocco. The flowers from this tree produce a more pure orange scent than you may be used to from other fragrances. This scent is more floral then I usually like in fragrances (I’m a fruity, sweet fragrance girl) but it’s still sweet. It’s not at all like old lady scents I associate floral fragrances with! :)

When researching for this look, I found a LOT of bright colored fabrics used in Moroccan culture. Perfect! I decided to do a look that was bold and bright and a bit different than what I usually do. I also wanted to incorporate pinks and oranges into the look to represent Orange and Lychee scents from the fragrance.

    I wish this look was a little less “punk” looking, the black and pink distract me I wish I was more pink/orange and maybe navy instead of black, but other than that the look on its own is amazing

    I love the bright look!  Brights are awesome!  I would have liked to have the orange be more prominent, though.
