Bambolina means little doll in Italian, a perfume inspired by a Saturday afternoon walk in the middle of June. As sometimes happens as summer approaches, an unexpected downpour sent people scampering for cover from the brief cloudburst; Hilde found herself under a cherry tree, enjoying the drops of water sneaking through the leaves and splashing on her face like a caress, reminding her of picking cherries as a child. The delightful predicament was turned into Bambolina, a cheery cherry blossom perfume infused with watery notes reminiscent of Hilde’s late spring shower. Lemon, cherry and apricot are uplifting, bergamot is cool and there’s just a smidge of musk to mellow the fruit. If you need to bring a little surprise to a dreary day, a little burst of fun to dissipate the doldrums, then Bambolina is your cure.
