I’m the exact opposite of a morning person. I hit snooze countless times on my alarm clock before finally dragging myself out of bed, only to get ready for work half-asleep and completely out of it. No amount of caffeine or coffee could possibly pull me out of my daze, so when I asked my friend how she managed to stay so perky before the sun is up, I was surprised when she suggested a perfume.
“A fragrance?” I asked, my mind completely blown. “How does that help you wake up?”
I squinted my eyes to read the fine print, “Made in the USA with the finest natural ingredients and best essential oils.” Well, that’s pretty impressive, I thought to myself.
“Try it,” she offered, holding the bottle out toward me.
I spritzed the best citrus perfume into the air and was greeted by Meyer lemon, white grapefruit and Satsuma mandarin notes. My eyes began to widen as a burst of energy traveled through my body. It was still so early in the morning, yet I felt alive and awake like never before!
“Wow, this is better than a cup of coffee!” I exclaimed.
“I know,” she said, laughing, “and it’s better for you, too. You know, since Harvey Prince is 100% cruelty free, vegan and gluten free.”
“Can you smell those flowers? It’s like the first day of spring!” I marveled as the best citrus perfume released sweet notes of pink plumeria, summer forsythia and wild verbena into the air. Hello was a perfect blend of notes, striking an ideal balance between invigorating citrus and feminine florals. “Do you think I could borrow this sometime?” I asked, thinking of how the best citrus perfume would be able to help me during my morning struggle to wake up.
“Uh…no way! Hello by Harvey Prince is so affordable in the Harvey Prince online store, there’s no reason why you can’t get your own!” she said, clutching the bottle tight to her chest as Tahitian vanilla and musk lingered in the air around us. “Besides, how do you expect me to get to work on time without a little boost from the best citrus perfume?!” she said as we both broke into laughter.
