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

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.

    LOVE this look. Looks so exotic and totally fits the Moroccan theme! Reminds me so much of Morocco (well the parts i’ve seen on tv at least XD). Looks great on you, Leesha! I wish pink could look half as good on me!

    Not a fruity, sweet notes kind of girl when it comes to scents (not so much into floral either, I surprised myself by falling for my latest perfume-Ralph Lauren Big Pony No.3. Initially bought it bc I could only smell a note of freshly-cut grass, which epitomises summer for me. Detected the floral notes later on, but they’re unobtrusive and fresh!) and perfumes like Illamasqua’s Freak & Liz Claiborne’s Mambo for Women are exactly my taste (dying for my own bottle of Freak!).
    However, your review on this aromatic blend has really peaked my interest.
    Plus I love the accompanying tutorial-orange is my favourite colour and I love combinations of orange, fuschias, reds, yellows, and bright, pink-toned purples. And the liner is some serious badassery…plus you added glitter, and I never tire of sparkly, bright, bold, neon, colourful in-your-face eye makeup.
    The tl;dr version of this is: I adore the colours you picked for this tutorial, the liner is badass (please always wing your liner w/ the isoceles triangle method, The usual, single extended line that reaches beyond your outer corner just makes the wing look disconnected and odd. The upwards flick is really flattering with your eye shape!), glitter makes the world go round and I would love to win one of the Kiehls sets.
